Herm Edwards Won't Quit, Might Not Have to

Ryan Wilson

by Ryan Wilson

Here's a sobering stat: the Chiefs have lost 21 of their last 23. Not good, not even if you're Rod Marinelli. And when you're Herm Edwards, the guy who took the Jets to multiple playoff appearances, and did the same in his first year in Kansas City, it has to be tough to convince yourself to keep coming to work.

And yet he does. In fact, despite the futility, and the search for a new general manager, Edwards says he's staying. For now, anyway. Via ESPN's Chris Mortensen:

...Edwards won't quit as coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, but sources say that with only one year left on his contract, he may not have the energy to embrace a run with a new general manager after Carl Peterson resigned Monday. ...

Also, Edwards has a young family, with two children under 5 years old, and the strain of a season that has resulted in several gut-wrenching losses has taken its toll on him, the sources added.
