Chiefs Hire New PR Guy

The Chiefs announced late Friday afternoon that they’ve hired Ted Crews (right) as the team’s vice-president of communications.

Crews joined the Chiefs after spending three years (2009-11) with the St. Louis Rams, where he was the team’s Senior Director of Communications. Before that he spent four years with the Atlanta Falcons (2005-08) as Manager of Football Communications. He broke into the league with the Carolina Panthers where he spent five years in the public-media relations department (2000-04).

A 1999 graduate of South Carolina State University, Crews worked in the school’s sports information office during his time as an undergraduate.

In another public relations department move unrelated to the hiring of Crews, long-time Manager of Football Information Brad Kuhbander (left) has turned in his two-week notice and will leave the Chiefs next week. The Hamler, Ohio native joined the team in 2001 after working at both the University of Florida and the sports information office of his alma mater Baldwin-Wallace College in Cleveland. He was the longest tenured person in the team’s PR department with 11 years of employment. Actually, at 11 years he was one of the most veteran club employees in the building.

Kuhbander has taken a position with the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.
