KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kansas City Chiefs president and general manager Carl Peterson has resigned, effective at the end of the season.
Owner Clark Hunt confirmed the resignation Monday. Peterson took over in 1989. He hired Marty Schottenheimer as coach and they built the Chiefs into an NFL powerhouse over the next 10 years.
However, Kansas City faltered the past decade and seemed to hit a low point with an emotionally draining 22-21 loss Sunday to San Diego, which left the Chiefs 2-12.
