Scott Pioli and the Kansas City Chiefs part ways
Scott Pioli’s future with the Kansas City Chiefs is no longer undetermined. He has no future with the franchise.
The Chiefs and Pioli “have mutually agreed to part ways,” according to a press release issued Friday by the team.
“After several productive conversations, we made the difficult decision to part ways with Scott Pioli and allow him to pursue other opportunities,” Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement Friday. “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.”
The move comes a day after ESPN reported that the Chiefs were on the verge of hiring former Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid. Multiple reports have indicated that Reid would bring in his own general manager.
