Hunt discusses future of Chiefs training camp

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - After next year, the Kansas City Chiefs may not hold training camp in St. Joseph, Mo.

During a visit to practice Monday, owner Clark Hunt discussed the future of camp. The Chiefs are in the fourth year of a five year contract to hold camp at Missouri Western State University.

Hunt says says if it's up to him, camp will stay in St. Joseph. But he says new head coach Andy Reid will have a big say in the decision.

"It's been a great experience for us in St. Joseph," Hunt said. "We wanted to give the new coaching staff a chance to experience it. Everything I've heard from Andy (Reid) about being here at the university has been extremely positive."

One other option for training camp is the team's facilities in Kansas City. Hunt says while that is a viable option, he likes holding camp on the road.

"You don't have the environment you have at a university where you have the dorms and the cafeteria in the same area," Hunt said. "Personally, I like the team going away and the bonding that takes place in the three or four weeks together at camp."

Hunt says the team will address the future of Chiefs training camp at the end of year.
