    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Chiefs made another round of sweeping changes Monday in an attempt to lift themselves out of a season-long funk.

    Coach Romeo Crennel sacked himself as defensive coordinator, and plans to spend more time with the team's inept offense, while cornerback Stanford Routt was waived and defensive tackle Shaun Smith was signed.

    Crennel had been juggling head coaching and coordinator duties since taking over on an interim basis when Todd Haley was fired last December. Gary Gibbs will take over as defensive coordinator.

    "We have a young team, you know? And some guys, their perception, all right, may be that I'm a defensive coach, or a defensive coordinator, and I don't care about other parts of the team, which is not true," Crennel said Monday. "They will see I'm concerned about the whole team."

    Romeo Crennel's a guy that I've always admired. Seems like a genuine, good guy and players love him.

    Hopefully they work it out in KC. I want to see him succeed...but they've gotta get that man a Quarterback.

    A HC stepping down as coordinator and play caller when they know they are doing a bad job, I wish we had a head coach like that

    Its really too bad. If the Cowboys somewhow manage to win a SB in this era they frankly do not deserve it.

    I'm a huge Sooners fan and got to see a large dose of Gary Gibbs as OU's coach after Switzer left OU. Gibbs is probably a great football mind, but he is too much like Garrett.... he has the personality of a shrew, and very little fire or emotion. He is the anti-Rob Ryan.
