Jamaal Charles gave beleaguered coach Romeo Crennel a public endorsement after their seventh straight loss, Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reports.
“I don’t know what the outcome is, what you’re going to get if you keep on changing head coaches and changing head coaches,’’ said Charles, playing for his third head coach in five years with the Chiefs.“If you keep doing that, he can’t get the right players here. I feel if you stay with one system and continue to get players, I feel you can be successful. If (Crennel) is here for one year, you just can’t kick him out because he’s not having a good year. Let him get his stuff together and have a couple of years, then we can have a successful year.
“Everybody goes through (coaching changes) every year, and some have success and some don’t. Some come back (without a coaching change) next year and have a better year.’’
“I feel bad for Romeo,” Charles said. “He’s a good coach, but we’re not playing up to our potential to win for him. I feel bad. We should be going out there and playing harder for our coach.
“I think we are (playing hard), but we’re just not putting it together.’’
