The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to keep general manager Scott Pioli, but first-year head coach Romel Crennel is probably on his way out, reports NFL.com. 

If Crennel is fired, the report says that Pioli could make a play for Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz, since there is no buyout in Ferentz's contract at the school.

Whoever is in charge in 2013, they will most likely look for a quarterback in next year's draft as Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn have struggled this season. Kansas City is 2-13 this season.

Chiefs fans were upset with Pioli throughout the regular season, staging protests at home games. We can't imagine the reaction if Chiefs owner Clark Hunt retains him. Ticket sales surely would suffer.
Crennel, 65, is 33-74 as an NFL head coach in eight seasons with the Chiefs and Cleveland Browns.
