The Chiefs continue to cut away at their scouting department. On Wednesday, the organization fired vice president Bill Kuharich who was the head of pro and college scouting.
Kuharich had been with the Chiefs since 2000 when he was hired as their pro personnel director. Three years ago, he oversaw the draft when the Cheifs had Herm Edwards has their head coach. This latest moves come after the firing of director Chuck Cook and several scouts from earlier in the week.
According to the Chiefs’ website, prior to his arrival in Kansas City, Kuharich enjoyed a 14-year tenure with the New Orleans Saints beginning in ’86, serving as that club’s Director of Player Personnel until ’93. He was promoted to Vice President of Football Operations, working in that role from ’94-95 before being named Executive Vice President/General Manager in ’96. Kuharich was then elevated to the post of President/General Manager/Chief Operating Officer of the Saints in ’97, a position he held through the ’99 season.
