Romeo Crennel may have picked up some points in the eyes of management and fans in Kansas City with the Chiefs' upset of Green Bay on Sunday.
Now, outside linebacker Tamba Hali is throwing his support behind the interim coach removing the "interim" part from his job title.
“He’s very motivating,” Hali told the Kansas City Star. “He treats us like men. He does expect a lot from us, but he knows what it takes to work this business, and how the body feels, and we’re people, too. We love Romeo. He’s one of those coaches who has been a coach in this league. He has five Super Bowl (championships). With that type of resume, you want someone around who can help us get to the top."
Crennel bombed in his first head coaching stint in Cleveland, but then again, so did Bill Belichick. If Crennel can keep the Chiefs' focused, motivated and playing well over the final two games, given Scott Pioli's familiarity with him, he might have a chance to retain the job permanently.
