Nearly a month after the season, the Chiefs still haven’t made a coaching change. Mike Shanahan still doesn’t have a job.

Thus, in the past 24 hours, like a virus that has spread, some have concluded that Kansas City is pursuing Shanahan and he could be the Chiefs’ next head coach.

Time to squash that rumor. As of mid-day Thursday, the Chiefs and Shanahan haven’t had any contact. None. Zero. Zip. Nada.

Yet, within the past hour, I’ve received a half-dozen calls and e-mails from various Kansas City and Denver media outlets, asking if there’s any truth to the rumor that the Chiefs and Shanahan are talking.

No, there is not. There is no truth to the rumor. Chiefs officials are at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., and Shanahan just finished a morning run on the treadmill.

The Chiefs’ coaching mystery continues — minus Shanahan.
