Pioliís limbo status is keeping him from playing musical chairs

Nice.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...usical-chairs/

Quote:
If the Chiefs fire G.M. Scott Pioli, it’s unknown whether he’d draw interest for any of the current G.M. vacancies. But until the Chiefs terminate him, the question remains moot.

And if, of course, he’s terminated once the music stops elsewhere, it will be too late for him to transition from one G.M. job to another — if another team is interested in hiring him.

He arguably would be better off if he’s fired later instead of sooner. Then, he could get paid by the Chiefs for 2013 and lay the foundation for a return to a front office in 2014, instead of rushing toward any chair that may be open.

In contrast, it would be better for the Chiefs to make a move while the music is still playing. This would increase the possibility of his buyout being reduced, if he ends up with a new job in the current hiring cycle.

Maybe that’s what the Chiefs are hoping to do. By making it clear that Pioli could be fired, perhaps owner Clark Hunt hopes other teams will request permission to interview Pioli, in the hopes that someone will take his contract off Hunt’s hands. If so, it would be a more subtle example of what the Jets did last year with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, clumsily hyping him for head-coaching jobs while having no intention of bringing him back.

Either way, Pioli is getting paid in 2013. The question is whether he’ll be working for the Chiefs, for someone else, or not at all.

Smart if thats the case.

Pioli will always have a job somewhere as long as Daddy Tuna and Bellichek are around.

Obv, Clark is trying to get him to resign so he won't owe him the last $5M he is due this year. And Pioli won't. He'll just go thru a worthless year not doing anything before he gives up that kinda coin.

Pioli will sit out the year or land somewhere in a lesser than GM role. Chief lawyers just working out the financial details right now.

Hunt forcing Pioli to weigh being a free agent immediately vrs waiting and getting more money on a buyout.


If Pioli's plan is to just go back to new england then Hunt's game won't work. If Pioli wants to look for a new job with one of the many teams cleaning house then he might give in and take lesser money.

Good point... Thinking the New England option might be the way it falls.

So are we to believe that Clark's conversation with Peyton Manning was the last straw? If so, we can assume that Clark had made up his mind to bring Pioli back before that? That's troubling to me.

One of the cool things about the way Clark is managing this deal is that disposing of Dr. Evil and his slime trail has become some sort of "process".

I have hated that Cassel was the Chiefs' starting QB since day one, but never hated the man. Who turns down $60M and a NFL starting job because they know they're not good enough? He's a quality person who worked hard, just didn't have the skills. Cassel hate fell/falls squarely on Pioli's shoulders from start to finish.
