In the midst of one of the most forgettable seasons in Kansas City Chiefs history, there's a chance that owner Clark Hunt will turn back the clock and bring back the man who shaped the team throughout the 1990's. The Chiefs deny it, but Marty Schottenheimer is reported to have met with Hunt at team headquarters yesterday.
Chiefs fans are abuzz.
Assuming that where there's smoked meats there's fire, and rumors of Marty's visits are true, it's possible that Hunt was only looking for a little friendly advice. It's also possible that the team wishes to offer Marty a front office role of some type. But it's also possible that they want to fire Romeo Crennell and bring back Martyball.
The 69-year old NFL stalwart coached the Browns in the mid-1980's before taking over as Kansas City's skipper from '89 until '98. After resigning his post in KC, Marty went on to a stint with the Chargers and then with the Redskins. Then, in 2011, Schottenheimer gambled on a short-lived GM / head coach gig with the Viginia Destroyers of the UFL. He has not been formally involved with any team in 2012, choosing instead to work in broadcasting.
