[Kansas City.com] If the Chiefs want Romeo Crennel as their defensive coordinator, the next move is theirs.
Crennel’s agent, Joe Linta, said Tuesday the veteran coordinator’s preference was to work next season for the Chiefs.
“Would he take it if they offered the job? I suppose he would,” Linta said.
Chiefs coach Todd Haley has said he would evaluate the performance of the defensive coaches, including coordinator Clancy Pendergast, and make a determination on which ones would return next season.
Crennel is coaching this week at the East-West Shrine Game in Orlando, Fla. Linta indicated Crennel would like to have something resolved with the Chiefs quickly.
“First shot (goes) to the Chiefs if it works out,” Linta said. “If not, four other (teams are) interested in him.”
Linta said Crennel spoke with the New York Giants this week about becoming their defensive coordinator.
Linta said Crennel has already discussed the coordinator’s position with Haley. That suggests Haley has decided to make a change.
