Pioli to run Chiefs

Posted by Chris Brown on January 13, 2009 – 9:14 pm

Well a day after officially losing their offensive coordinator (Josh McDaniels), the New England Patriots appear to have lost the most important piece of their front office hierarchy as ESPN and NFL Network are both reporting that Patriots VP of Player Personnel Scott Pioli is taking the GM job with the Chiefs.

It also means according to the report that Herman Edwards is out as head coach and that Giants DC Steve Spagnuolo could be hired as head coach.

This is obviously a big loss for the Patriots front office, who also lost Thomas Dimitroff the year before to the Falcons where he expertly turned them into a playoff team in a year.

According to ESPN, Director of Player Personnel Nick Caserio will fill Pioli’s role for the Patriots moving forward.
