Kudos to Kansas City Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, who has conducted one of the quietest general-manager searches the NFL has seen.
In recent days, the Chiefs have interviewed at least a half-dozen general-manager candidates, according to multiple league sources, yet only a handful of the names actually have surfaced.
Candidates interviewed include Patriots vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli, Chargers director of player personnel Jimmy Raye, former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist, former Titans GM Floyd Reese and former Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer.
League sources insist the Chiefs are waiting on Pioli, that he’s their No. 1 candidate for the job. If the two sides can’t agree on a contract, then Kansas City will be prepared to move on. But apparently it still is in talks with Pioli, though no decision is imminent.
