Vermeil to Retire After the Season
Dick Vermeil told the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday that he will retire as coach at the end of the season, the Kansas City Star reported.
Lynn Stiles, the Chiefs’ vice president for football operations, told the newspaper that Vermeil, 69, informed his players and coaches about his decision at a team meeting. Stiles, who was at meeting, said Vermeil appeared at peace with his decision.
“I know so.... It’s the right thing for him to do, for his family, and it’s the right thing to do for the organization,” Stiles said.
Kansas City could reach the playoffs by beating Cincinnati today if Detroit beats Pittsburgh.
