KCTV5 in Kansas City is reporting that former Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio has spoken to the Chiefs about their head coaching position.
Del Rio is no stranger, as he played for the Chiefs for a season after 11 years with the Saints as a linebacker. He was the coach of the Jags from 2003 till the middle of the season, when he was fired for the failures of his club.
Del Rio had a 69-73 record, including 1-2 in two playoffs appearances. The Jaguars didn’t win the AFC South in any of his nine seasons.
The Chiefs are searching for a new coach after firing Todd Haley with three games in the season. Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel was promoted to interim head coach. He led the team to a victory over previously unbeaten Green Bay and a victory against Denver. The Chiefs fell at home to the Raiders on Christmas Eve in overtime.
Crennel has said he wants the job and is also a candidate.
