The purge of the Chiefs personnel department continued as V.P. of Player Personnel Bill Kuharich was released Wednesday morning.
Kuharich joined the organization in 2000 as director of pro personnel.Β He was named to his current position in 2006 and worked closely with then head coach Herm Edwards in the drafts of 2006 through 2008.Β He has 26 years of experience in pro football personnel.
Reports out of Detroit had the Lions interested in hiring Kuharich back in January, but the Chiefs refused to grant the Lions permission to speak with him at that time.
He’s the seventh person in the team’s personnel department that has been sent out the door this week by new GM Scott Pioli.
