The Kansas City Chiefs announced today that head coach Todd Haley will be relieved of his duties effective immediately.

“This was a difficult decision but one that we feel is best for the future of the Chiefs,” Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “Although there have been bright spots at different points this season, we have not made meaningful progress and we felt that it was necessary to make a change. We appreciate Todd’s contributions during his time with the club, and we wish him well in the future.”

Haley went 19-27 in three years as the Chiefs head coach and led K.C. to the AFC West division title in 2010. The Chiefs are 5-8 this season and coming off a 37-10 blowout loss to the Jets on Sunday.
