Crennel wants Chiefs head coaching job

Romeo Crennel's first go-around as a head coach in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns was a washout.

But now that he has been named interim coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, replacing the fired Todd Haley on Monday, the defensive coordinator would like a crack at keeping the head coaching job on a more permanent basis.

"You know what? When I left Cleveland, one of the things I felt was that my competitive nature, my competitive energy that I have, I would like to be a head coach again and show I could get it done," Crennel told the Associated Press. "I know how to get it done and I think the experience will make me better."

General manager Scott Pioli, who knows Crennel from their days together in New England, has said Crennel will get an interview for the full-time job. That interview process begins over the final three games of the Chiefs season.
