PETERSON AGREES TO FOUR-YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION WITH CHIEFS
Mar 17, 2005, 5:06:41 AM



Kansas City Chiefs Founder Lamar Hunt and Vice Chairman Clark Hunt announced on Thursday that President Carl Peterson has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the team. Peterson’s current contract was set to expire following the 2005 season. With this four-year contract extension, the team will retain Peterson’s services through the 2009 season.



Lamar Hunt, whose 45 years of association with the team qualifies him as a senior observer of Chiefs football said: “Carl was instrumental in leading the Chiefs back to the top echelon of the NFL after joining the organization in December of 1988. This new contract will carry through his 21st season with the organization. Such stability is unusual in the front office of an NFL team and is a big plus for the football fans of Mid-America. We look forward to the Chiefs continuing to be a competitive team within the NFL.”

Peterson enters his 17th season as Kansas City’s top executive in 2005 after originally joining the Chiefs in December of ‘88. During Peterson’s tenure, Kansas City has employed just three different head coaches and has finished first or second in the AFC West 11 times. Over that 16-year span, the Chiefs made eight playoff appearances, won four AFC West titles and reached the only AFC Championship Game in team history. In the 17 seasons prior to Peterson’s arrival, the Chiefs made just one playoff appearance and enjoyed just four winning seasons, while working under the direction of six different head coaches.

During Peterson’s 24 seasons as a pro football executive, squads whose personnel operations he has overseen have produced 18 winning records and have made the playoffs 15 times, a span that dates back to ‘77 when Peterson served as Director of Player Personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles. In addition to his NFL tours of duty in Kansas City and Philadelphia, Peterson also served as the President and General Manager of the USFL’s Stars. During that league’s three-season run from ‘83-85, the Stars compiled a league-best 48-13-1 overall record, won the final two USFL titles after reaching the league’s first championship game.

Under Peterson’s leadership, the Chiefs and their fans have created one of the league’s most impressive homefield advantages. Kansas City has sold out 117 consecutive contests at Arrowhead — including five postseason games — dating back to the club’s ‘91 regular season opener. Since the ‘95 season, Denver is the only AFC club that has a better home record than the 58-22 (.725) ledger produced by Kansas City at Arrowhead. The Chiefs have gone 13-3 three times under Peterson’s tenure (’95, ‘97 and 2003), boasting 8-0 regular season marks at Arrowhead each of those years.

The team’s national popularity has also grown tremendously over the past 16 years. Kansas City has been among the NFL leaders in merchandise sales, national-television appearances (71 times, including 25 on ABC’s Monday Night Football, the past 12 years) and international exposure (four American Bowl appearances since ‘90). Moreover, in 2004, the team registered season ticket holders from an amazing 47 different states.

“The Chiefs organization is fortunate to be able to retain the services of a proven leader like Carl for an additional four years,” Clark Hunt stated. “Throughout his tenure with the team, Carl has set a high standard in the management of both the business and football sides of the organization. With Carl’s leadership, we look forward to maintaining the Chiefs reputation as one of the best-run franchises in the NFL and providing our loyal fans with many exciting Sunday afternoons.”

“It has been my distinct honor and privilege to work for the Hunt family these past years,” Peterson noted in receiving the extension. “I sincerely appreciate their confidence and loyalty and will continue to work diligently to give them and the fans of Kansas City my best efforts. It is my continued goal to win a world championship for the Hunt family and for the greatest fans in pro football.”

Peterson serves on the National Boards for the Maxwell Football Club and Pop Warner Little Scholars Organization. He serves as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Pop Warner and is a member of the International World President’s Organization. He also serves on the Board of The Third and Long Foundation, which was founded by the late Derrick Thomas. In addition, Peterson serves on the following NFL Committees: NFL Management Council/C.E.C. Senior Executive Group, College and Pro Relations, NFL Europe League Working Executives and the NFL Youth Football Funding Board.

Peterson was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 with a class that included the likes of longtime Chiefs DE Art Still and former two-sport All-Star Bo Jackson. Spearheaded by the efforts of Peterson and his wife, Lori, the Chiefs organization (players, coaches and front office staff) has raised a net of over $12 million for local charities since ‘98.

Sure he would. He if doesn't put butts in the seats and his money generating activities stop working. I could see Lamar moving in a different direction if he loses money.

Unfortunately, alot of those same people that complain about him being the GM, consistently buy tickets and merchandise, which in turn keeps Carl employed. It's kinda like biting off your nose to spite your face. It's really quite simple, don't want Carl in KC, stop buying the crapola he is selling.

I'm really ok with this. Sure Carl's a pompus ass clown, but who would be the alternative in Lamar's eyes, Jack Steadman? As a business man, Carl's great. Where he sucks the most is in player evaluation. This is where the Chiefs fail as an organization, and have since the departure of Terry Bradway. A lot of people complain about Carl's negotiating skiils, but I think Denny Thum is starting to handle more and more of the face-to-face negotiating with players and agents. Rejoice Chiefs fans. This gives all of us four more years of material to discuss on the planet

Carl has always sounded lukewarm to that. Vermeil is the one really pushing for it. If the team isn't winning, Carl's gonna have a tough time getting the fans to buy into that hire.

This is a disappointment in many ways. I was hoping any contract extension would be contingent on us seriously contending for a super bowl this year. If we don't then it is basically 7 out of the last 8 crap seasons for Carl. I'd be all for it had we contended this year. It's way too early to be handing out this extension right now, especially after the Rolle blunder...

1 winning season since 1999 and he's rewarded with an extension, zero playoff wins since 1993, but these jackasses keep talking about how he "returned the Chiefs to the upper echelon in the 90s".

Someone should tell these stupid bastards that it's 2005 and no one cares about the 90s anymore.

Unreal.
It further propogates the "all Lamar & the Chiefs care about is making $" myth IMO.

Why else would you extend the contract of an unsuccessful prick such as Carl Peterson? Drafting has been terrible, FA moves have been mediocre at best, and success on the field has been rare since Marty left. Hell, ZERO SB appearances. ONE Conference Championship appearance - and it was over a decade ago. No playoff wins in over a decade. ONE playoff appearance since 1997.

But ticket prices kept going up. Parking prices kept increasing. Halftime/Pre-Game "entertainment" still sucks ass.

I guess if people are stupid enough to keep shelling out their $ for a mediocre product, why strive to put anything better out there? The little piggies keep slurping up the slop they're being fed... and asking for seconds.

What in the hell is Carl Peterson doing Negotiating HIS OWN contract during Free Agency? If that Flat Peckered clown spent half the effort to field a champ, instead of a contender, that he does his own contract(yes...I understand why)....

What is the Most Outraging is the fact that the prickbutter hasn't fielded a playoff victory in a decade, the coaching staff is on the way out, and it'll soon be time to rebuild.

I can see no concievable reason why an owner would give him an extention.

How many GMs in the league, have More years without a playoff win, without being Fired?

This Suks after-gym Baows.

Lamar.......I've always been thankful for my Chiefs......But Fug you for doing this to Chief fans...again.

That'll give him an even 20 years on the 5 year plan?
