(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have fired head coach Todd Haley. Haley, 19-27 during his time in Kansas City, led the Chiefs to the AFC West division title last season.
“This was a difficult decision but one that we feel is best for the future of the Chiefs,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement. “Although there have been bright spots at different points this season, we have not made meaningful progress and we felt that it was necessary to make a change. We appreciate Todd’s contributions during his time with the club, and we wish him well in the future.”
The Chiefs, who lost to the New York Jets 37-10 on Sunday, are 5-8 this season and in last place in their division.
