Scott Pioli is done in Kansas City.
  • Scott Pioli's tenure is over in Kansas City.

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.

Pioli also issued a statement through the Chiefs:

"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."
