Scott Pioli Named Kansas City Chiefs General Manager

Jan 13, 2009, 4:47:11 PM


http://www.kcchiefs.com/media/images/7B59A169409A4C78B1FFFC6B3ACC131F.JPG?0.041924477133371996Kansas City Chiefs Chairman Clark Hunt today announced the hiring of Scott Pioli as General Manager.
Pioli joins the Chiefs after nine seasons with the New England Patriots where most recently he served as Vice President of Player Personnel. The Chiefs plan to formally introduce Pioli at a press conference at 5:00 PM in the Stram Theatre at the Chiefs Administrative Facility on Wednesday.
“We are very excited to welcome Scott to the Chiefs,” Hunt said. “With his proven track record of success, Scott is the finest player personnel executive in the NFL, and we look forward to his leadership in building a championship organization.”
In his capacity as General Manager, Pioli will have final say over all football operations and report directly to Hunt
During his tenure in New England, the Patriots won Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX, claimed the Lamar Hunt Trophy four times as the AFC Champion and won six AFC East titles. A four-time winner of NFL Executive of the Year honors from national media outlets, Pioli served as the Patriots Vice President of Player Personnel from 2002-08 after originally joining the franchise in 2000. In total, he brings 17 seasons of NFL experience to the Chiefs organization after tours of duty with New England (2000-08), the N.Y. Jets (1997-99), Baltimore (1996) and Cleveland (1992-95).
Pioli’s skills as a talent evaluator helped create a consistent championship contender in New England. During his association with the Patriots, he was regularly recognized for his ability to build a team, not simply collecting individual talent. During his nine-year run with New England, the Patriots became widely recognized as one of the NFL’s model franchises. From 2000-08, the Patriots compiled an NFL-best 102-42 (.708) regular season record. Over that span, New England registered 14 playoff victories, tying the Pittsburgh and Dallas squads of the ‘70s for most playoff wins by a franchise in a single decade. New England accumulated 11 playoff victories from 2003-07, the highest total by any team over a five-year span in NFL history.
During his time in New England, Pioli worked in close coordination with head coach Bill Belichick, bringing players to the Patriots who fit into the framework of the club’s team concept. Pioli and Belichick became the first personnel director/head coach tandem in league annals to win three Super Bowls during a four-year span (2001-04). Their collaborative efforts also helped the Patriots register nine or more victories each of the last eight seasons, including the NFL’s first 16-0 regular season in 2007.
Recognized as one of the league’s most astute player personnel executives, Pioli received George Young NFL Executive of the Year honors from The Sporting News following the 2003 and 2004 seasons, an award voted on by fellow NFL executives. The youngest individual ever to win that accolade, Pioli joined Bill Polian and Bobby Beathard as just the third person to ever win that honor in consecutive seasons. Pioli was named NFL Executive of the Year by the Dallas Morning News in 2001 and also received NFL Executive of the Year honors from Pro Football Weekly and Sports Illustrated in 2003. In 2004, Pioli’s accolades included the NFLPA’s Award for Executive Achievement in addition to NFL Executive of the Year awards from USA Today, the San Francisco Chronicle and SI.com. In 2007, Pioli again earned NFL Executive of the Year honors from Pro Football Weekly, the Dallas Morning News and the San Francisco Chronicle.
The depth and versatility of New England’s roster compiled by Pioli were key components to the Patriots success in recent seasons. In 2005, the Patriots set a post-merger league record for a division champion by utilizing 45 different starters. In 2003, the Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVIII despite using 42 different starters, the most in league history by a Super Bowl champion. In 2004, the Patriots employed 40 different starters as they won their second consecutive Super Bowl. In 2006, New England won its fourth straight AFC East title while using 39 different starters.
Under Pioli’s direction, the Patriots used an effective combination of draft picks, free agent signings and trades to continually upgrade their roster. Since Pioli joined the Patriots in 2000, New England’s draft choices have earned a combined 16 Pro Bowl berths. That list is headlined by four-time Pro Bowl QB Tom Brady (D6b-00), who has twice earned Super Bowl Most Valuable Player honors and was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 2007. Other Pro Bowl draft picks during the Pioli era in New England included five-time selection DE Richard Seymour (D1-02) and two-time Pro Bowl T Matt Light (D2-01). Players drafted by Pioli in New England with at least one Pro Bowl to their credit include: C Dan Koppen (D5-03), G Logan Mankins (D1-05), CB Asante Samuel (D4-03), DT Vince Wilfork (D1a-04) and K Stephen Gostkowski (D4b-06).
Notable Patriots free agent signees during the Pioli era included S Rodney Harrison (FA-03), LB Mike Vrabel (UFA-01) and three-time Pro Bowl special teamer LB Larry Izzo (UFA-01). Meanwhile, New England also acquired several key performers via trades. WR Randy Moss (T-07) was acquired from Oakland and set an NFL single-season record with 23 TD catches in 2007. WR Wes Welker (T-07) was acquired from Miami in 2007 and led New England with 112 receptions in his debut campaign with the Patriots. Welker earned his initial Pro Bowl berth in 2008 after producing a team-high 111 catches. RB Corey Dillon (T-04) joined the Patriots from Cincinnati and set the franchise’s single-season rushing record with 1,635 yards in 2004.
Pioli began his NFL career when Belichick hired him as a Pro Personnel Assistant for the Browns in ‘92. In Cleveland, he was responsible for the evaluation of both college prospects and veteran free agents, as well as negotiating various player contracts. He was promoted to Director of Pro Personnel after the franchise moved to Baltimore in ‘96. He spent one season with the Ravens, where he oversaw all aspects of pro personnel and negotiated the contracts of free agents and several draft choices.
In ‘97, he was hired by the N.Y. Jets as Director of Pro Personnel. He was credited with the signing of a number of veteran free agents who played critical roles in the Jets rebuilding process. In just two seasons, the Jets completed a worst-to-first turnaround, rebounding from 1-15 in ‘96 to 12-4 in ‘98. Those 12 wins in ‘98 were the most in franchise history and gave the Jets their first division title since ‘68.
Pioli played defensive tackle at Central Connecticut State (1983-87), where he was a three-time Division II All-New England selection. In ‘88, after graduating with a degree in communications, he accepted a two-year graduate assistant position at Syracuse University, where he also earned a master’s degree from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
He accepted a full-time coaching opportunity at Murray State, where he spent one season as the offensive line coach (’90) and one season as the defensive line coach (’91). He left the coaching ranks to join the Browns personnel department in ‘92.
Pioli was born on March 31, 1965 in Washingtonville, N.Y. He currently serves on the board of directors for various non-profit foundations and serves on the board of directors for the College for Every Student Foundation, a national non-profit organization that partners with public schools in high-need communities to raise student aspirations and performance. He remains actively involved in fundraising for several organizations in his hometown (Washingtonville, N.Y.) and at his alma mater of Central Connecticut State, where he was enshrined in that school’s Hall of Fame in 2005.
He established the Rose Pioli Scholarship in the name of his grandmother to benefit children of educators, professional firefighters, police and other emergency medical service providers. Pioli and his wife, Dallas, have a daughter, Mia Costa Pioli.

Updated ESPN Article:

Pioli to join Chiefs


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Scott Pioli, who helped build and lead a dynasty in New England, is now in charge of a Kansas City franchise that hasn't won a playoff game in 14 years.
The 43-year-old Pioli will be introduced on Wednesday as Chiefs general manager, replacing Carl Peterson. Pioli was seen packing up his office Tuesday afternoon, a Patriots source told ESPN's Michael Smith. "He will have complete charge of football operations," Ryan Petkoff, a spokesman for Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, told The Associated Press. "He will report only to Clark." The decision to hire Pioli likely means Herm Edwards will not be back as Chiefs head coach next season. Among the top candidates to succeed Edwards is New York Giants (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyg) defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. A source close to the situation told ESPN.com's Bill Williamson that Edwards sent his assistant coaching staff home to await word on the future in light of the Pioli hiring news. At this point, Pioli is expected to meet with coaches Thursday so a decision on Edwards and his staff's future could be made in the coming days. Pioli, who became vice president of player personnel for the Patriots in 2002 and spent nine years working with head coach Bill Belichick, also interviewed for the general manager vacancy in Cleveland. He inherits a young team coming off a 2-14 season but is stepping into a situation that seems ripe for a quick turnaround.<!-- begin whole table --> <!-- begin top part --> Williamson: Spectacular Hire

http://assets.espn.go.com/i/columnists/williamson_bill_m.jpg The hiring of Scott Pioli is a monster move for the organization. Judging from his work in New England, Pioli could be a franchise-changing general manager, writes ESPN.com's Bill Williamson. Blog (http://myespn.go.com/blogs/afcwest?tag=pioli%20to%20kc)


<!-- end sidebar table --> The fan base is loyal, though restive, and the team will be playing next year in a virtually new stadium. Arrowhead, which opened in 1972 and is notorious for being loud and rough on visiting teams, is undergoing a $325 million renovation, which includes new luxury boxes, wider concourses and enhanced amenities in addition to new practice facilities, an enlarged indoor field and a brand new state-of-the-art headquarters building. In addition, the Chiefs are about $32 million under the salary cap, extra money that will come in handy because they own the overall No. 3 pick in the draft. Besides that, there are a number of promising young players who Edwards was counting on as the foundation of his rebuilding project. Pioli, the son-in-law of Miami Dolphins (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=mia) boss Bill Parcells, has been honored many times for his contributions to the Patriots' three Super Bowl championships. With Pioli working with Belichick, the Patriots used an effective mix and match of trades, free-agent signings and draft selections to dominate the league. In 2007, six players drafted by Pioli and Belichick made the Pro Bowl. "We are very excited to welcome Scott to the Chiefs," Hunt said in a statement. "With his proven track record of success, Scott is the finest player personnel executive in the NFL, and we look forward to his leadership in building a championship organization." Patriots owner Robert Kraft praised Pioli as an "integral part of the many championships the New England Patriots (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nwe) have celebrated this decade." "Scott is a great evaluator of talent," Kraft said. "He is thorough in his evaluations, extremely organized and has done a tremendous job mining all possible resources to help coach Belichick and his staff field the players needed to win consistently. He has played an important role in building a championship tradition with players that I am proud to call Patriots."<!-- INLINE NFL.com Video (BEGIN) -->
<!-- INLINE NFL.com Video (END) --> Pioli's NFL career started when Belichick hired him as a pro personnel assistant for the Browns in 1992. Belichick then brought him to New England shortly after he became head coach of the Patriots. From 2000-08, the Patriots were an NFL-best 102-42 in the regular season and rang up 14 playoff wins. "To sum up in words everything Scott Pioli has meant to this organization and to me personally would be difficult, if not impossible," said Belichick. "From the day I met him, he has demonstrated a passion for football and respect for the game that is second to none." Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio will replace Pioli as vice president of player personnel, league sources told ESPN. A club spokesman confirmed there had been no determination made on Edwards' status. That may have been a point of discussion between Pioli and Hunt when they negotiated their deal. Hunt signed off on the rebuilding project that Edwards launched this year and said in training camp he knew it would be a painful process early on. And it certainly was. Beset by injury, including season-ending mishaps to the top two quarterbacks, the Chiefs beat only Oakland and Denver and set a number of team records for defensive futility. Their 10 sacks were an NFL-low since the stat was kept beginning in 1981. Yet, when he announced the resignation on Dec. 15 of president, CEO and general manager Peterson, Hunt said he thought Edwards was the best man for the Chiefs program going forward. But he also said the new general manager would have "significant input" into the final decision. Edwards' first season in Kansas City was a hit. The Chiefs went 9-7 in 2006 and captured the last wild-card playoff spot. They were routed by Indianapolis, but Edwards was just the fifth man to take two different teams to the postseason in his first year; he also did it in 2001 with the Jets. He wanted to begin dismantling an aging team and start rebuilding that next season but ran into opposition from a front office that felt there was enough left for another playoff run. But after an encouraging 4-3 start, age and ineffectiveness at several key positions began creating problems. The Chiefs ended 2007 on a nine-game losing streak. Then Hunt agreed it was time to tear it down and rebuild. Now Pioli takes charge of those efforts.

Pioli takes GM job in Kansas City

Posted: January 13th, 2009 | Adam Schefter | Tags: Kansas City Chiefs, Scott Pioli

The Chiefs have hired Scott Pioli to be the general manager. Pioli, 43, was considered one of the masterminds behind the Patriots dynasty.

The Chiefs have been looking for a new GM since Carl Peterson resigned after 20 years as president, general manager and CEO.

I was not sold on him but i'm will to wait and see and hope that he fires Herm and brings in a top Coach not just some assistant that hasn't been a head coach before.

2 things of my lists 2 to go!

(X) HIRE Pioli or Polian

Well congrats to the Chiefs. Better the Chiefs than the Broncos or Jets. I'm still not happy to be getting raided seemingly every year. It gets very tiresome, but it's the price of success I suppose. Better to have this than to have everyone ignore your team and its coaches because they are the very definition of mediocrity. I don't remember anyone wanting our front office personnel or coaches during the years before the Belichick era.

I hope that he decides to stick with the 4-3 defensive system that the Chiefs currently run so there's less competition for the types of players the Patriots care about.

Ah well. If nothing else, this does tell me that Belichick is going to remain in New England for many years to come. If he thought he was a year or two away, I think SP would've stayed at New England and taken over all football operations after BB's retirement.

Now on the Bench's father, "Hey, (insert Head coaches name), you Sunofabiotch!11. IT's Over with." Of course, he was referring to my Alma matters tradition of benching the starters for the 4rth quarter once the game was in hand, but, it was only the first quarter.

Sources: Pioli to join Chiefs

<!-- begin story body --><!-- template inline -->
New England Patriots (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nwe) vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli has agreed to become head of football operations for the Kansas City Chiefs (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=kan), two NFL sources confirmed to ESPN's Michael Smith.
(http://www.nfl.com/videos?videoId=09000d5d80dbdd5b&campaign=ec0009)<!-- INLINE NFL.com Video (END) -->Pioli was seen packing up his office Tuesday afternoon, a Patriots source said.

The decision to hire Pioli likely means Herman Edwards will not be back as Chiefs head coach next season. Among the top candidates to succeed Edwards is New York Giants (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyg) defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.


Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio will replace Pioli as vice president of player personnel, league sources told ESPN.


Pioli, 43, has been with the Patriots for nine years.


Pioli should find a warm welcome in Kansas City. At the last Chiefs home game, shortly after the embattled Carl Peterson resigned after 20 years as president, general manager and CEO, several signs were spotted in the crowd proclaiming, "We want Pioli."

THought this needed its own thread for all of those not scouring the Pioli Watch thread.

He isn't inked yet. He has agreed to come here, according to THIS report. Not done yet though.

They are saying BB runs the show, the Pats will be fine. Kind of dissing Pioli.

Also said Pioli got tired of being "the other guy" and wants to run the show, have his own team.
