[Kansas City.com] The settling-in period for Herman Edwards lasted all of 12 hours.
Day one of the Edwards era started with the Chiefs’ new coach locked away in a makeshift office early Tuesday for closed-door meetings that dragged into the night. He shuffled in players, who waited their turn for appointments. He had individual meetings with the assistants from Dick Vermeil’s staff.
By late in the day, at least one coach found out he wouldn’t be back. Assistant offensive line coach Irv Eatman said Tuesday night that he was let go in a late-afternoon meeting with Edwards. Eatman said Edwards is going with a smaller staff, and that required the elimination of some positions.
The Chiefs had two coaches for both the offensive and defensive lines in 2005.
Eatman said he’d heard there will be other departures but didn’t know who or when. Receivers coach Charlie Joiner said Tuesday night that he met with Edwards and expected to talk again.
“We didn’t come to anything definite,” Joiner said.
