CBS Sports first reported that the Chiefs were going to give general manager Scott Pioli a two year contract extension. The report indicated Pioli had yet to sign the contract, due to the buyout language being the primary reason.
While Chairman Clark Hunt would not publicly discuss employees contracts and did not confirm or deny, the Kansas City Star is reporting a source from within the Chiefs organization says the team has had no discussions with Pioli regarding a contract extension.
The Chiefs are just 22-32 in the regular season since hiring Pioli in 2009. They had once successful season when the team won AFC West with a 10-6 record in 2010 but lost their playoff game to Baltimore. The Chiefs are now 1-5 and have not lead in a game all season.
