We're not the only ones who figure there is no way Herm keeps his job.

This was reported early this morning. I thought everyone had seen it already.

While the coaching carousel has spun wildly around the league, it has barely moved in Kansas City.

But that could change at any time. Multiple NFL executives believe Herman Edwards will not return as the Chiefs’ coach next season. They believe it’s only a matter of time before the change is made.

Once the Chiefs hire a general manager, the belief is that he will bring in his own head coach, which probably wouldn’t bother Edwards one bit, being that he has one year left on his contract and would be free to seek employment elsewhere.

Chiefs GM candidates are believed to include Patriots executive Scott Pioli, Colts vice president of football operations Chris Polian, Buccaneers director of pro personnel Mark Dominik and Chargers director of player personnel Jimmy Raye. One of those men, or whoever is hired as the Chiefs’ GM, is expected to make the final call on Edwards.

But it no longer seems a question of if Edwards will go. It seems a question of when.

Man, I just can't allow myself to believe this. There is no logical way that Herm should be retained. None. But I still can't allow myself to believe it.

I feel the same way. Until I see it with my own eyes, I refuse to accept it so there is no jinx.

I disagree. In his final press conferences he wasn't acting the same. He acted like a kid that knew he did something wrong and was about to get punished for it. Like a stubborn 12 year old. He knows he's gone.

The typical corporate direction would be to make the cut as high as you can or want--GM. Let the new GM make the cuts or decisions as he wants. Owner is not going to cut the coach out, why? Let the new GM do that. Let the GM make the decision to be responsible for. And what owner is going to try to lure top shelf front office only to say, "oh, but you have to keep this coach we got, because I like him." We're not going to get/have a new GM worth his salt for whom the owner won't say, "Here are the reigns. Here's the key."

I don't think the owner sits and thinks, "gee we've just been a couple years into Herm's program, so any new GM I get is going to have to stay with him." That'd be the tail wagging the dog.

I think the firing in Denver shows the owner's viewpoint over any viewpoint you think would matter (competitiveness). Shanahan will be a highly competitive coaching value where ever he goes. Bolen had given Shanny the moon. The last several years without a playoff win notwithstanding, Bolen came up on an issue that was an impasse. I think the reason Bolen said the Broncos needed to go another direction was because there was no higher place Shanahan could go, short of making owner's decisions. And Bolen wasn't going to give him that. No the next leadership setup there won't be as effective as Shanahan at first. But that is not Bolen's principle concern. Being the top dog is.

I will say that keeping Herm around right now just to fire him later is not the usual methodology for the Chiefs. Historically we let players go early in camp to give them a better shot at landing elsewhere. Waiting on Herm just makes it harder for him to try for any of the currently open positions.

Another terribly written KFFL headline.

Makes it sound like Herm thought he was going to be fired.

That would be news.

I agree, and he was wearing his stocking cap backwards, with the Chiefs logo in the back the next game after the Carl Peterson announcement. He KNOWS he is done, and sealed his fate with "distraction of a new GM", comment.

I don't like Herm, but I think it is wrong to leave another man hanging this long, like they did Gunther.

The squirrel from Tampa Bay worked with Herm ( I know you have heard of Herm and his Tampa Bay days!!) and if any GM kept Herm it would be him.
Say no to Dominick for GM

Not Herm's fault. A white man made him interview.

Say no to Dominick for GMAnything can happen, so I won't completely rule it out, although I think this hire(TB Squirrel) would suck ass and yes, it's well-known about Herm and his Tampa Bay days. My point was, Herm didn't seem real confident that he would be back and given his record, I would say it's highly unlikely he will be back, barring this fruitcake of a move.

If youdon't get fired after going 2-14, nobody should ever get fired.

Syntax is confusing. See from context that 'people' expect Edwards to be fired in the future. On it's face it looks like Edwards himself has already expected to be fired.

So somebody with first hand knowledge of Herm's coaching
would want to keep him on - with their reputation at stake
-follow through is not a Chiefsplanet staple

Ya know that's probably one of Herm's bigger problems as a Chief. Did anyone ever feel this guy bled red and gold for lack of a better term? Always talking about Tampa Bay and calling one of the oldest rivalries in football "just another game". And not in a good way "just another game" as in we're going to approach it the same as we we any other team.

Herm....GET THE FUCK OUT!!! Seriously, just go. Why are you prolonging both your agony and ours?

You suck. Go.

Well said, he actually probably has more of an emotional investment in Oakland. I despise this guy.

If youdon't get fired after going 2-14, nobody should ever get fired.

If you don't get fired after a 4-12 season followed by a 2-14 season...
No one should ever be fired.

But none of that was Herm's fault.

Herm made the playoffs with DV's team, but it was DV's team that caused the 4-12 season.

The kids don't know how to execute, or make plays, is all Herm could come up with, after reviewing the 2-14 tapes.

The Chiefs are so fortunate to have Herm Edwards.

If the Morris dude leaves Tampa for the head coaching job in Denver or where ever, I forsee Herm going back to Tampa as D coordinator. Gun would make a great LB coach for him as well.
The only one I'd like to see kept is the Gibbs coach.
