KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Now former Chiefs general manger Scott Pioli says he did not do what he set out to do in his four-year tenure in Kansas City.
The team and Pioli reached a “mutual agreement to part ways,” Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt announced in a statement on the team’s website Friday morning.
In a statement thanking the Hunt family, Chiefs employees and the fans in Kansas City, he apologized for not accomplishing his goals.
“To the Hunt family – to the great fans of the Kansas City Chiefs – to the players, all employees and alumni, I truly apologize for not getting the job done,” Pioli said.
