“I would imagine he would be coaching a position. Again, we are adding another guy to the mix and Romeo is going to be in charge of the ultimate defense. But every one of those guys plays a critical role and I am fortunate enough that, last year and now this year, I have a bunch of guys who have run the defense before, guys that have been coordinators, some of them that have been head coaches, Romeo being one of those. If the fit is good and I know that everybody can work together towards the common goal then we have a chance to succeed and that is what is going on right now. I know Gary Gibbs is going to coach linebackers and Clancy was coaching the defensive backs last year, and that is where I would think he would stay.”If Pendergast sticks around, this will be a big part of the defensive staff Haley wanted last year. Crennel was offered the coordinator job last year. He declined because he was having hip surgery. If Pendergast sticks around, it gives Kansas City another experienced coach and one who knows the team. It will only strengthen Crennel’s defensive staff.
