Chiefs, Pioli Part Ways

Posted 2 minutes ago

PR Staff Kansas City Chiefs Public Relations Official Press Release Email @ChiefsPR

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that the club and General Manager Scott Pioli have mutually agreed to part ways.

“After several productive conversations, we made the difficult decision to part ways with Scott Pioli and allow him to pursue other opportunities,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “Scott has been an invaluable member of the Chiefs family since joining us in 2009, and we sincerely appreciate his tremendous contributions over the last four years.

“I know that this was a difficult decision for Scott as well. He has a great deal of appreciation for the history of this franchise, for our players, coaches and employees, and especially our great fans.

“There is no way to overstate the level of respect and admiration I have for Scott on a personal level. His character, loyalty, integrity and commitment to a team are extraordinary, and throughout the last four years, he has consistently put the best interests of the Chiefs ahead of his own. I know he will go on to enjoy further success in the National Football League, and I certainly wish him the best in the future.”

Pioli, 47, was named the Chiefs General Manager on Jan. 13, 2009 and has served in that position for four seasons. During his stint with the Chiefs, the club earned its first division title and home playoff appearance since 2003 and Pioli earned NFL Executive of the Year honors from national media outlets in 2010.

Pioli released the below statement on parting ways with the club:

“I would like to thank Norma, Clark and the Hunt Family for the opportunity that they gave me four years ago. I’d also like to thank the players, coaches, scouts and countless other employees, throughout the organization and at Arrowhead Stadium that have worked so hard during my time here. I would also like to genuinely thank Chiefs fans.

“The bottom line is that I did not accomplish all of what I set out to do. To the Hunt family – to the great fans of the Kansas City Chiefs – to the players, all employees and alumni, I truly apologize for not getting the job done.”

Please contact Ted Crews in the Chiefs Communications department with any questions or inquiries.

I love how Lurie thanked Reid for several productive seasons and Hunt thanked Pioli for several productive conversations.

Clark can probably pay Reids salary up front with all the STH's that renew today.

It was kinda funny - while nearly everyone else was flipping out, thinking Pioli would be around in some capacity - I (of all people) - was preaching patience.

It's good to have the franchise back.

If so, the Hunts are so professional, they probably want to announce the Pioli parting individually in order to respectfully acknowledge Scott's tenure of service with the Chiefs, and departure. (Isn't that better than when Gunther found out about being fired with an email?)
