[SI.com] Did the Chiefs come-from-behind victory over the Colts save head coach Todd Haley’s job? Well, that is the case according to a report by Nick Wright, who tweeted Wednesday that “Multiple Chiefs personnel told me Scott Pioli had decided to fire Todd Haley had the Chiefs lost to the Colts on Sunday.”
Wright’s the one who broke the news this preseason that rookie K.C. receiver Jonathan Baldwin had injured his wrist in a locker-room fight with Thomas Jones.
Kansas City trailed the winless Colts 17-7 before rallying to capture a 28-24 win.
If Kansas City was going to go in a different direction with its head coaching spot, this might have been the week to do it — the Chiefs have a Week 6 bye, and on the rare occasion a head coach is relieved of his duties in season, it often happens when a team has those extra days to prepare for its next game.
How long Haley lasts as the Chiefs’ head coach going forward could depend — especially in light of Wednesday’s report — on what Kansas City does in Week 7 and beyond.
