KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)—Scott Pioli, who helped build and lead a dynasty in New England, is now in charge of a Kansas City franchise which hasn’t won a playoff game in 14 years.
The 43-year-old Pioli will be introduced on Wednesday as Chiefs general manager, replacing Carl Peterson.
“He will have complete charge of football operations,” Ryan Petkoff, a spokesman for Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, told The Associated Press. “He will report only to Clark.”
The fate of coach Herm Edwards and his staff was not immediately known.
Pioli, who became vice president of player personnel for the Patriots in 2002 and spent nine years working with head coach Bill Belichick, also interviewed for the general manager vacancy in Cleveland.
He inherits a young team coming off a 2-14 season, but is stepping into a situation that seems ripe for a quick turnaround.
