ESPN reported on its website Monday morning that Crennel will indeed be fired and general manager Scott Pioli, for now at least, has retained his position.

La Canfora also said "Andy Reid doesn't fit in San Diego and could come to Kansas City." La Canfora reports Reid will be fired as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday. La Canfora also said the San Diego Chargers will fire Norv Turner as head coach on Monday.

La Canfora addressed Pioli's future at the end of The NFL Today, listing him as a general manager on the "bubble."

"As we reported earlier, Pioli was sitting on a multiple year extension that he did not sign. There's mounting fan pressure to make sweeping changes in that organization," La Canfora said.

Glazer from Fox Sports said Pioli will go in on Monday and tell Chiefs Owner Clark Hunt "why he should not be out and why he'll bring in the right head coach next time around."

NBC Sports, Yahoo! Sports and NFL.com are reporting Crennel is out but Scott Pioli could be staying.

This would be Pioli's third chance to hire a new head coach after Todd Haley and Crennel.
