Teicher: Edwards appears off-limits, Saunders to be interviewed

http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansas...s/13531716.htm

Search to start close to home
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs will begin their search for a new head coach by interviewing offensive coordinator Al Saunders sometime this week.

But it wont end there. By the time the Chiefs hire a replacement for the newly retired Dick Vermeil, president/general manager Carl Peterson probably will have talked with several candidates with far-reaching backgrounds: college head coaches, NFL assistants and former NFL head coaches.

Peterson indicated Sunday after the Vermeil era ended with a 37-3 win over Cincinnati at Arrowhead Stadium that he has several names on his search list, though he would reveal none other than Saunders. But NFL defensive coordinator Gregg Williams of Washington, a native of Excelsior Springs, and Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops could be on that list.

One of Petersons favorite candidates, Jets coach Herman Edwards, appears to be off limits. Edwards has two years remaining on his contract, and Peterson said NFL tampering rules forbid him from contacting the Jets regarding Edwards.

If the Jets call me, obviously Id talk to them, Peterson said.

After the Jets ended their season Sunday, Edwards tried to end the speculation he would jump to the Chiefs.

As far as Im concerned, he told reporters in New York, Ill be back.

Peterson also indicated he would comply with the NFL rules requiring teams with coaching vacancies to interview at least one minority candidate.

Asked whether he would interview other internal candidates in addition to Saunders, Peterson said, At this point, no.

That would rule out former Chiefs head coach Gunther Cunningham, now their defensive coordinator.

Peterson said he had no preference for a coach with an offensive or defensive background. He indicated he wanted a seasoned coach but didnt care if that experience came in the NFL or college.

Besides Al Saunders, there are some talented guys, and some of them right now are coaching in the playoffs, Peterson said. I owe it to Lamar (Hunt) and Clark (Hunt) to talk to those people also.

Lamar Hunt, the Chiefs owner, echoed those sentiments.

I think its important for us to have somebody who has experience, Hunt said. I dont know personally that it is important to have pro experience. Im open-minded in that respect. Clearly, the job Nick Saban has done this year (with Miami) proves you can come out of college and do pretty darn good.

The Chiefs are replacing a 69-year-old coach in Vermeil. Even when he was hired five years ago, the Chiefs viewed Vermeil as a short-term coach. He wound up staying five seasons, two longer than they expected.

Their next coach probably will be someone much younger who could be a long-term solution.

One thing Id like to see is someone who has ample time to really make a name for himself and build a foundation here. Hunt said. Were not looking for a two-year fix or one-year fix.

It does indicate Athan was full of it when he reported that Saunders had already accepted the job at Detroit.

Yep, just a formality is all. I dont think Peterson wants him to be honest.

It appears they dont want to go the Gunther Cunningham route of 99-2000 and hire from within....Signs dont look good for Saunders.

Another Teicher:

Saunders waiting on his prospects
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star

Al Saunders put a final flourish on his head-coaching resume Sunday. The Chiefs offensive coordinator designed a game plan that resulted in four touchdowns and a season-high 537 yards in a 37-3 rout of Cincinnati at Arrowhead Stadium.

Now the waiting game begins as Saunders attempts to get a head-coaching job. He will talk to the Chiefs about replacing Dick Vermeil and probably will have one or more interviews in the coming weeks.

The Lions, who fired Steve Mariucci several weeks ago, could come calling. As many as eight other teams could be looking for new head coaches as soon as today.

Saunders wouldnt answer questions about his future Sunday. But after the Chiefs finished a fourth straight season among the league leaders in scoring and yardage, his prospects of becoming a head coach have never been better.

Without any question, hell get some interviews, Chiefs president/general manager Carl Peterson said. He deserves it.

Vermeil campaigned one final time after Sundays game for Saunders to be his successor.

A number of people who have been given opportunities are not nearly as qualified, Vermeil said. Hes paid his dues. Hes done a remarkable job here.

Quarterback Trent Green joined Vermeil in stumping for Saunders.

Ive said all along that I have a great relationship with Al and I enjoy this offense, Green said. Its an offense Ive been in my entire career with different coordinators in different phases of my career.

Al would make a great head coach. But thats not my job. Carl is going to make a great decision either way. I have expressed to him there are a lot of guys who have been in this offense a long time, myself included, and I dont know if we necessarily want a change in philosophy.

I think were built really well for the type of offense we run. Id like to see Al given the opportunity, but my job is as a player, and whoever they bring in, Im going to support.

That sounds like some ugly rebuilding years to which I say bullshit! As much as Al Saunders has his downsides, he can run an offense. I would really like the same offensive system kept with personel changes to both the coaching staff and the players. I think this team can go far into the playoffs next year under this system.

That seals it for me. Saunders will be the next head coach.

This offense must stay, we have a real chance of being pretty damn good if we got some help. I hope Saunders stays.
