At 5-8, and coming off a 37-10 defeat to the New York Jets, Haley’s firing is not a total surprise.  Kansas City went 19-27 in Haley’s three seasons, including a playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

“Todd helped this team in many valuable ways over the past three seasons, and I am thankful for his contributions,” Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli said in a statement. “Unfortunately, we have not been able to establish the kind of consistency we need to continue to build a strong foundation for the future and we believe a change is important at this time.”
