KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Herm Edwards has been fired as coach of
the Kansas City Chiefs.
Edwards led the team during its worst two-year span in team history, has been fired, going 6-26. He goes out with a three-year regular-season record of 15-33 and with one year remaining on a four-year, $12 million contract.
Edwards had been waiting to learn his fate since president and general manager Carl Peterson abruptly resigned on Dec. 15. When Scott Pioli was introduced as Peterson's successor on Jan. 13, he was noncommittal and said only that he intended to speak with Edwards.
