[Kansas City.com] The football guy in Bill Kuharich saw bigger things and explored job possibilities in Minnesota and a handful of other NFL cities. The family guy in Kuharich wanted his three young daughters to stay in Kansas City.
He can have both now. The Chiefs have promoted Kuharich to vice president of player personnel, adding to his duties as VP of pro personnel.
“It’s a good opportunity for me,” Kuharich said Thursday. “I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to work with a lot of good people in the NFL, excellent head coaches in Jim Mora, Mike Ditka, Gunther Cunningham, Dick Vermeil and Herman Edwards.”
“It’s never the same. Every draft is different. Every day is an opportunity to improve your team in all aspects.”
Kuharich will take over the player personnel duties from Lynn Stiles, who will remain vice president of football operations. Stiles said the idea of taking a step back and assuming a smaller load had “been lingering in my mind for a period of time” because of personal reasons.
