Herm Edwards Is Fired By The Kansas City Chiefs
A dismal season that saw the Chiefs only managed to muster up 2 wins has cost head coach Herm Edwards his job.
"This was not an easy decision," Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said of Edwards' firing. "Herm is an outstanding football coach and a man of integrity. We appreciate his leadership over the past three seasons, and we wish him all the best in the future."
The Kansas City Chiefs hired Edwards in January of 2006. He managed to get a record of 15-32 losses in the regular season and a single lose in the post season. Edwards was the coach of the New York Jets for five seasons from 2001 to 2005 before joining the Chiefs.
The NFL rumor mill is churning out lots of speculation that former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan is in line to take over the struggling Chiefs. Shanahan was fired by the Broncos earlier this month after an 8-8 season that saw the Broncos lose their final three games to miss the post season after a strong start to the season.
