Chiefs Fire Edwards, Want Shanahan?


Mike Shanahan may become the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. ESPN reported on Friday afternoon that the two sides were close to a deal that would bring the former Broncos coach to Kansas City. ESPN now says the Chiefs "target" Shanahan.

Adam Schefter of the NFL Network has told a Denver TV station, "They are not near a deal. They are not near a deal right now, they were not near a deal yesterday, they will not be near a deal tomorrow. Mike Shanahan will not be the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs."

Edwards, who led the team during its worst two-year span in team history, has been fired after going 6-26. He goes out with a three-year regular-season record of 15-33 and with one year remaining on a four-year, $12 million contract.

Edwards had been waiting to learn his fate since president and general manager Carl Peterson abruptly resigned on December 15. When Scott Pioli was introduced as Peterson's successor on January 13, he was noncommittal and said only that he intended to speak with Edwards.
