[Kansas City.com] Seven weeks after the season has finished, the Chiefs finally got around Friday to firing five of their assistant coaches.
Dismissed were position coaches Jon Embree (tight ends), Curtis Modkins (running backs) and Eric Price (wide receivers) as well as quality control coaches Mike Ketchum and Kevin Patullo.
It is unclear whether Chan Gailey (offensive coordinator), Bob Bicknell and Joe D’Alessandris (offensive line) and Tim Krumrie (defensive line) will remain with the team and work for new head coach Todd Haley.
Four members of Herm Edwards’ staff have already departed for other jobs. Defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham went to the Lions, special-teams coach Mike Priefer to the Broncos, secondary coach David Gibbs to the Texans and quarterbacks coach Dick Curl to the Rams.
