It's a move that makes sense. In his three games as head coach, Crennel guided the Chiefs to a 2-1 record with wins over Denver and Green Bay (the Packers' only loss of the season). The Chiefs were actually a pair of blocked field goals away from making the playoffs, falling to the Raiders only because of the incredible special teams play of Oakland's Richard Seymour.
We put Crennel as the clear favorite a month ago when setting the odds on who would permanently replace fired coach Todd Haley. And while Jeff Fisher and Jack Del Rio have both sat down with the team, there were no indications that either was a serious candidate to move forward. If Schefter is right, and he usually breaks news only when he has multiple sources to confirm what he's hearing, then Crennel is in. Now that it's out there, how are you feeling, Chiefs' nation?
