The Kansas City Chiefs plan to retain interim head coach Romeo Crennel, according to league sources.

Chiefs officials could not be reached for comment Saturday, and a timeline for when they'll make an announcement was uncertain.

Crennel has a good relationship with general manager Scott Pioli and is well-liked by his players.

And the Chiefs' Week 15 win over the previously unbeaten Packers and their 2-1 record after Crennel was named interim coach also worked to his favor.
