Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli maintains that despite the fact that Romeo Crennel is the team’s new head coach, the organization’s draft strategy will remain the same.
“It’s an organizational philosophy and it doesn’t change from person to person,” Pioli recently told The Kansas City Star. “There’s going to be a way that we’re going to build this franchise. … If you don’t have a core structure and you change things based on certain dynamics, you’re setting yourself up for failure.”
Since Pioli took over in 2009, the team has stuck to its plan regardless of who was the coach.
“There hasn’t been much that has changed … we have our philosophy, an organizational philosophy that involves a lot of people,” Pioli said. “It’s not just mine, it’s not just the head coach’s, it’s not just the coordinators. There’s an organizational philosophy in place.”
Pioli recently tipped his hand as to who the Chiefs will select this week in the draft.
“Ultimately, I think every year, if possible, we’d like to find a way to draft a quarterback because it’s just good business and its smart business,” Pioli said. “Now, who that is, when we do it, how we do it, you never know.”
