Why not just fire Piholi and let Joel get going on the personnel decisions going forward during the interim. He's fine for this.

Obviously, we want to see new blood at the GM helm going forward, and making this move now would communicate to those potential candidates and get this franchise/CLLLLLark on the same page with fans.

Imo, fans would actually feel better about Hunt if he were to make the move right away. We'd feel like the jig is up at 1 arrowhead and that attitude would permeate in the stadium. We could all feel better about our suck knowing next season brings a whole new staff and hope.

Entering his 22nd NFL season in 2012, Joel Collier enters his fourth campaign as Assistant General Manager with the Chiefs. Collier assists General Manager Scott PioLLLLLi with the day-to-day football operations of the club, working closely with the coaching and player personnel staffs.

Prior to joining the Chiefs he enjoyed a three-year stint with New England (2005-07) as an assistant coach, working with the defensive backs. The Patriots had a stellar season with Collier leading the club's defensive backs in 2007. New England captured the NFL's first 16-0 regular season record and advanced to Super Bowl XLII. Thanks in part to Collier's secondary unit, the club ranked fourth in the NFL in scoring defense, allowing just 17.1 ppg.

In 2006, Collier assisted in guiding a secondary that helped the Patriots rank second in the league in scoring defense as New England established a franchise record by allowing a mere 14.8 ppg. The Patriots defensive backfield surrendered a league-low 10 TD passes, while Pro Bowl CB Asante Samuel registered a league-high 10 INTs.

After losing six members of the defensive backfield to season-ending injuries in 2005, Collier was instrumental in mentoring a secondary that allowed just 188.0 passing ypg over the club's final seven contests. Over an eight-week midseason span, the Patriots utilized six different starters at strong safety. In total, 13 different starters roamed New England's secondary that season.

In between two separate coaching stints in New England, Collier served an 11-season tenure with Miami (1994-04). During a seven-year stretch as running backs coach (1998-04), the Dolphins produced a 1,000-yard rusher three times. Under Collier's guidance, RB Ricky Williams assembled the finest two 1,000-yard rushing seasons in Dolphins history with a league-leading 1,853 yards in 2002 and a 1,372-yard effort in 2003. In 2002, Williams became the first Dolphins running back to earn a Pro Bowl berth since RB Delvin Williams in 1978.

Collier was also credited with developing FB Rob Konrad into one of the league's premier blocking fullbacks. In total, Collier helped three different Dolphins finish among the NFL's top five rookie rushers.

Before tutoring Miami's running backs, Collier spent four seasons as a defensive assistant (1994-97). In that role, he assisted with the club's linebackers unit and was credited with assisting in the rapid development of LB Derrick Rodgers, who took home Defensive Rookie of the Year honors fromSports Illustratedin 1997.

Prior to joining the Dolphins, Collier served his first tour of duty in New England. He spent two seasons as the Patriots assistant running backs/wide receivers coach (1991-92) and one season as a pro scout (1993).

Collier began his NFL coaching career as an offensive assistant in Tampa Bay (1990) following a two-year stay as a graduate assistant at Syracuse (1988-89), working on the same staff as Chiefs General Manager Scott PioLLLLLi. Collier was a three-year starter at inside linebacker for Northern Colorado.

The Buffalo, N.Y., native hails from a bloodline of NFL instruction. Collier's father, Joe, served as head coach of the Buffalo Bills (1966-68) and spent the following 20 seasons as an assistant with Denver (1969-88). The elder Collier was the architect of the Broncos 3-4 defensive scheme of the late 1970s that became known as the "Orange Crush." Denver would reach three Super Bowls while Collier's father served as defensive coordinator.

Education: Northern Colorado (B.A. 1987). Born: Buffalo, N.Y. Family: Wife - Shirley Ann; Children - Jeremy Grayson and Evelyn.

He arrived in Kansas City after spending 11 seasons with Cleveland (1999-09), where his duties included contract negotiations, as well as other responsibilities in football operations. During his tenure with the Browns, he served as Legal Counsel (2009), Director of Football Administration (2006-08), Salary Cap Coordinator (2001-05) and Salary Cap Administrator (1999-00).

Prior to joining the Browns, MacCracken served an internship at the NFL Management Council in 1998. He earned a degree from the Duke University School of Law in 1999 after graduating Cum Laude from Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. in 1996.

As I pointed out earlier, you want your GM prospects looking and thinking Chiefs roster ASAP because whomever is here now is merely going to make a largely ignored draft board for 2013 anyway. All you really need from this staff right now, this season, is a group that can set meetings with (off the street) FA and contract them if necessary.

The future is for future staff to decide.

IMO this would be a savvy PR move on Hunt's part. Everybody (fans) benefits too.

"Trip MacCracken" -- wasn't he a member of Omega Theta Pi?

His dad was one of the more successful defensive coordinators in the league during his time.

This appears to be nothing more than nepotism, although that's pretty difficult to escape in the NFL.
