Week in Review: Heads in New Headsets

2 of 5

   Romeo Crennel (Kansas City)

Crennel is the 12th head coach in Kansas City Chief history. He takes over the job from Todd Haley, who went 19-26 in a little under three seasons before being fired at the end of last year.

Crennel took a season off after being fired from Cleveland in 2008. He returned to coaching in 2010 with Kansas City and served as their Defensive Coordinator.  When Haley was fired, Crennel took over with three games remaining. It was publicized that he was the players choice for the job, and played extremely hard for him to keep it.

He will get that chance as he leads the Chiefs in what could be an unpredictable 2012 season (or Peyton Manning  and the Broncos could run away with it).

  Jeff Fisher (St. Louis) 

After coaching the Houston Oilers/ Tennessee Titans for seemingly forever, Jeff Fisher is back in the game leading the charge for the rebuilding St. Louis Rams.

Fisher in his career is 147-126 and will be the Rams 25th head coach in its history.

In early 2011, it was reported that both Fisher and the Titans mutually decided to part ways, apparently on good terms.

With a young team, it is going to be a project for the new man at the helm. It is unlikely at this point that the Rams will be competitive in the near future (but it’s still the NFL so who knows). But because of the look of things both the Rams and Fisher have to be patient. And the five year deal says they are.
