Edwards Faces Uncertain Future

From: Topeka Capital-Journal

Even though Chiefs chairman of the board Clark Hunt on Monday repeated his belief that Edwards was doing the right thing in rebuilding the Chiefs through the draft instead of reloading via free agency — and Hunt had the ultimate say in the coaching decision — he also said his new GM selection would have “significant input” into naming the Chiefs coach in 2009 and beyond. Edwards was asked Tuesday whether he felt it would be necessary to sell the direction of his program to his new boss.

“That will be something Clark and the new GM will talk about,” he said. “I’m not going to sell him on anything. I don’t think I have to. “I’m going to be what I am and coach the team the way I coach,” he added. “I think we all agree that this (rebuilding with young players) is the right direction to go. That’s why we chose to do it. Did we think it was going to be this painful? No. But I think we all agree that we’re going to stay on this course after this season and the years to follow. We’re all on the same page. We’re not going to change the direction of this organization.”
