Former Cleveland Browns head coach Romeo Crennel has gotten his chance to be a head coach once again, as he agreed to a three-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday.
After a 2-1 record as the interim head coach following the firing of Todd Haley, and with the team obviously responding to Crennel’s style, it was a no-brainer to give him the full-time gig.
And while the Chiefs’ 7-9 record may look disappointing, it came in a season full of injuries to big-time players, including safety Eric Berry, quarterback Matt Cassel, running back Jamaal Charles, and tight end Tony Moeaki. With these players (hopefully) coming back healthy in 2012, Crennel will be inheriting a pretty talented roster.
Browns fans should be happy to see Romeo Crennel get another head coaching job in the NFL. Despite his 24-40 record as head coach of the Browns, Crennel was one of the better coaches for the team in the expansion era. It simply came down to a case of his personality not meshing with the front office and the egos of the locker room.
Hopefully it works out better for him the second time around.
