The Chiefs have fired their head coach after finishing with the worst record in the NFL in his only season at the helm.

Crennel was hired before this season, in hopes that he would be able to turn around a Chiefs team that had been devastated by injury in 2011. It turns out that he wasn't able to do that, and the Chiefs regressed, if anything.

One of the names being mentioned as a possible replacement is former Bears head coach Lovie Smith, who was just fired minutes ago.

Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has said that he still hasn't made a decision yet on whether or not GM Scott Pioli will remain with the team.

The Chiefs have a ton of needs, and they'll have the top overall pick in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft.

If the Chiefs allow Pioli to hire the next head coach, it will be his 3rd head coach hiring in only 5 years.

Can it be Scott Pioli's turn already?
