11:53 AM ET 12.20 | Former Kansas City-area sports talk radio host Nick Wright reported via Twitter on Wednesday evening that both Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel have been informed they will not be back in 2013. The Chiefs were quick to deny the report with several reporters citing league sources denying the report. Despite that, Pioli and Crennel are both believed to be on the hot seat.

Going to be a new chapter with Clark Hunt running the show there. It's going to be interesting from afar to see how he implements his philosophy.

Romeo is a class act and a great defensive coordinator. Unfortunately he hasn't had much success as a head coach. His handing of the Belcher incident was superb. I can't even imagine how difficult that must have been.

I will be very surprised if they stay after the season

Despite that, Pioli and Crennel are both believed to be on the hot seat. But not at the same time one would hope.

This.

With that in mind, it might seem to be a much tougher decision to cut Crennel loose than it would be to cut Pioli loose. Business is business, though. Romeo won't be unemployed for long.

The head coach always gets wacked when the team do's not perform......maybe they ought to think about replacing the Offensive and Defensive Coordinators since it is they who put the game plan together and call the plays.

Up with Romeo! Down with Pioli...

You can't blame Romeo for the lack of talent they have on that squad.

December 20, 2012  01:21 PM ET

and we don't just ask the darn owner to verify or not? Why? He would be the only one to make the decision.

I agree, a nice guy, a defensive guy but probably not head coach material.

I'm sure everyone will be shown the door.

Unless you are the head coach of the Jets, or the Lions. If you are the HC of the Jets, the QB gets whacked. If you are the HC of the Lions, well, everyone just looks the other way.
