The Scott Pioli era is over in Kansas City as the Chiefs are set to announce a deal with Andy Reid as their new Head Coach.
Chiefs’ owner Clark Hunt issued the standard termination statement regarding Pioli. “After several productive conversations, we made the difficult decision to part ways with Scott Pioli and allow him to pursue other opportunities. Scott has been an invaluable member of the Chiefs family since joining us in 2009, and we sincerely appreciate his tremendous contributions over the last four years.”
Pioli, who took over the Chiefs’ front office in 2009 but was unable to come close to making the Chiefs a contender, released a statement as well.
“I would like to thank Norma, Clark and the Hunt Family for the opportunity that they gave me four years ago. I’d also like to thank the players, coaches, scouts and countless other employees, throughout the organization and at Arrowhead Stadium that have worked so hard during my time here. I would also like to genuinely thank Chiefs fans. The bottom line is that I did not accomplish all of what I set out to do. To the Hunt family – to the great fans of the Kansas City Chiefs – to the players, all employees and alumni, I truly apologize for not getting the job done,” Pioli said.
