Chiefs Fire Defensive Coordinator Two Days After AFC Championship Game

Just two days after giving up 37 points to Tom Brady and the Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs have decided to make a major change on their coaching staff.

The team announced Tuesday that they have fired defensive coordinator Bob Sutton.

Sutton's defense allowed four critical third down conversions on the Patriots final drive of regulation and in overtime.

According to Adam Schefter, a familiar foe could be on the list of potential candidates to take over for Sutton.

This is not the first time a defensive coordinator has lost his job after a playoff loss to Tom Brady. Just last year, the Titans and former defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau parted ways after the Patriots put up 35 points in the AFC Divisional Round.
