The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to elevate Romeo Crennel from interim head coach to the permanent head coach job, league sources confirm. The Chiefs haven't exactly cast a wide net in their search for a replacement for Todd Haley.

They didn't ask for permission to interview St. Louis Rams offensive coordintor Josh McDaniels, who's likely headed back to the New England Patriots as an assistant coach.

They interviewed former Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio, not exactly an inspired choice since he wasn't extremely successful with a 68-71 record in nine seasons.

And they interviewed Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.

The Chiefs played inspired football for Crennel in three games, winning two of them.

Crennel didn't do very well with the Cleveland Browns, going 24-40 as head coach. However, the Browns weren't exactly loaded with talent.
