KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Scott Pioli is out as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The team announced in a statement Friday that the two sides have "mutually parted ways" after four seasons marked by poor personnel decisions and failed coaching hires.

The Chiefs fired coach Romeo Crennel on Monday after going 2-14, matching the worst record in their 53-year history. Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said at the time other changes could be made, and indicated Pioli's future could be determined by their next coach.

The Chiefs are nearing a deal with Andy Reid to replace Crennel. The team and the former Eagles coach have been negotiating at length the past couple days.
