One of the hot names for the head coaching gig in Kansas City is Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz. Ferentz worked with Scott Pioli in the early 90's, he's part of the Belichick coaching tree, and he generally gets mentioned in every single coaching search.

But CBS Sports Charley Casserly reported on Sunday during The NFL Today that Ferentz is not going to be a candidate for the Chiefs job in 2012.

"One name rumored for the job that will not be there is Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz," Casserly told James Brown Sunday. "I talked to him this week and he's staying at Iowa. I would not be totally surprised if Romeo Crennel is the head coach next year."

Ferentz might seem like a "hot name" (he's really the Hansel of NFL coaching searches) but he's also an unproven commodity at the NFL level and that's probably a risk Scott Pioli can't take with his next coach even if Ferentz were interested.


Crennel makes a lot of sense -- he has head coaching experience, he's a Pioli guy, the Chiefs defense has been impressive this year despite the team's record, and he could likely bring Josh McDaniels from St. Louis as offensive coordinator.

The Chiefs are just a year removed from an AFC West championship, and Crennel, as defensive coordinator, was a big part of that. There's a good chance he now gets rewarded for his good work on that defense.

I know of one individual that is lucky he survived the beatings he obviously suffered as an infant. Goo Goo plays with DOLLS!
