It's too bad he didn't succeed. I was pulling for him and for the Chiefs to succeed under his watch. The NFL is the ultimate results business, with wins and losses being the only thing that matter, and there were nowhere near enough wins.
I assume hiring Andy Reid is the other shoe to drop. Doubt Reid wanted to fire him personally, so he had it done before he officially joined. Best of luck to the Chiefs under Reid, who I think highly of.
It had to be done with SP first because SP had final say in all football matters written into his contract. He had to sign off on every coach, assistant coach, scout and front office football staff in the building.
Clark breaks that, he would have gotten sued by SP. This way, Pioli walks away with 15 million parting gift and the Chiefs finally move on from that BS right 53 Patriot Way garbage.
