Kansas City Chiefs Fire Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton Following Loss To Patriots

The Kansas City Chiefs fired defensive coordinator Bob Sutton on Tuesday, two days after the Chiefs lost against the New England Patriots in a 37-31 defeat.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid announced the firing in a brief statement: “Bob is a good football coach and a great person. He played an integral role in the success of our team over the last six seasons. I’ve said before that change can be a good thing for both parties, and I believe that is the case here for the Chiefs and Bob.”

The 67-year-old Sutton had been defensive coordinator since 2013, when he joined Reid’s initial staff in Kansas City. The longtime college and NFL assistant had previously spent more than a decade with the New York Jets, including a stint as defensive coordinator.
