KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Scott Pioli is out as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The team announced in a statement Friday that the two sides have “mutually parted ways” after four seasons marked by poor personnel decisions and failed coaching hires.

The Chiefs fired coach Romeo Crennel on Monday after going 2-14, matching the worst record in their 53-year history. Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said at the time other changes could be made, and indicated Pioli’s future could be determined by their next coach.

The Chiefs are nearing a deal with Andy Reid to replace Crennel. The team and the former Eagles coach have been negotiating at length the past couple days.
