Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - The Kansas City Chiefs have hired John
Dorsey as their new general manager.
Dorsey, the longtime director of college scouting for the Green Bay Packers,
will be introduced in a press conference Monday.
Dorsey becomes the sixth GM in franchise history. He replaces Scott Pioli, who
had been the GM since January 2009. The Chiefs and Pioli parted ways earlier
this month prior to Andy Reid being named the new head coach.
Pioli's four-year run as Chiefs GM included an AFC West title in 2010 with a
10-6 record, but the team went just 9-23 the past two seasons.
Dorsey, who is his 22nd year in NFL player personnel, was promoted to Green
Bay's director of football operations in May 2012. He was the director of
college scouting for the team from 2000-2012.
The 52-year-old Dorsey was a fourth-round draft pick of the Packers in 1984 as
a linebacker out of Connecticut. He played five seasons before his career was
cut short by a freak knee injury in pregame warmups of the 1989 season opener.
