The Kansas City Chiefs fired coach Todd Haley on Monday, effective immediately.
The team did not name an interim coach in their statement announcing the move.
"This was a difficult decision but one that we feel is best for the future of the Chiefs," Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement. "Although there have been bright spots at different points this season, we have not made meaningful progress and we felt that it was necessary to make a change. We appreciate Todd's contributions during his time with the club, and we wish him well in the future."
