[ESPN.com] The Chiefs have fired head coach Todd Haley, effective immediately. The move comes a day after an ugly 37-10 loss to the New York Jets — the team’s fifth loss in six games.
The announcement from the team:
“This was a difficult decision but one that we feel is best for the future of the Chiefs,” Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “Although there have been bright spots at different points this season, we have not made meaningful progress and we felt that it was necessary to make a change. We appreciate Todd’s contributions during his time with the club, and we wish him well in the future.”
The Chiefs were 19-27 during Haley’s tenure with the club and claimed the AFC West Division Championship in 2010.
The Chiefs will hold a news conference to discuss the announcement later today.
