The Kansas Chiefs were sufficiently enough impressed with Romeo Crennel's 2-1 finish as interim head coach that they have named him coach on a permanent basis, NFL.com reported.
The thought of Crennel, who took over when Todd Haley was fired, taking the reins for good began to pick up steam when the Chiefs handed the Green Bay Packers their only loss of the regular season.
The Chiefs finished the season 7-9 and upset AFC West champion Denver in the regular-season finale.
Kansas City is just one season removed from the playoffs and lost a number of key players to injuries, including quarterback Matt Cassel, safety Eric Berry and running back Jamaal Charles.
