Chiefs make Crennel hiring official

The Kansas City Chiefs didn't have to look far in their search for a head coach.

The Chiefs liked what they saw in Romeo Crennel's approach and results in his three-game stint as interim coach and on Monday made official what had been reported over the weekend, that the 64-year-old defensive coordinator will be Kansas City's coach in 2012.

Crennel took over when Todd Haley was fired and guided the Chiefs to a 2-1 record, with both victories coming over playoff teams Green Bay and Denver. Crennel might have gone 3-0, had it not been for a blocked field goal at the end of regulation against Oakland.
