Kansas City Announces Defensive Coordinator Pendergast, Two Other Coaches Canned

The Chiefs announced today they will not be bringing back defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast or two other assistant coaches for the 2010 season. Also gone are tight ends coach Bob Bicknell and wide receivers coach Dedric Ward.

Pendergast was hired as defensive coordinator last year only because Romeo Crennel wasn’t available. Crennel accepted that job earlier this month, putting Pendergast out of the job.

In other moves, Richie Anderson will become wide receivers coach and Anthony Pleasant will be a defensive assistant. Both served minority coaching fellowships with the team last year. Pat Perles was reassigned to assistant offensive line coach. He was defensive quality control coach.
