With the Chiefs hiring of Romeo Crennel as defensive coordinator, the Chiefs let go Clancy Pendergast who was the defensive coordinator last season. The Chiefs who demoted receivers coach Dedric Ward during the season also let him go. The Chiefs will also freeze ticket prices for 2010 for upper and lower deck tickets…club level seats will increase.

The team says the decision for Clancy to walk was mutual. He was the defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals when they went to the Super Bowl and came over to KC when Haley took the head coaching job.

Team president Clark Hunt announced the ticket price freeze yesterday and said the club level increases are due to the fact there are many long term agreements already in place.
