Vermeil addresses rumors

Since Carl Peterson resigned earlier this week, rumors have circulated that Dick Vermeil might be interested in returning to the Chiefs in a front-office role. Vermeil today addressed those rumors, talking to Kent Babb of The Kansas City Star. According to the blog post, Vermeil calls reports that he's going to K.C. in a Bill Parcells-like role nothing but a "big rumor." But when asked if he was saying he wouldn't be interested in such a thing, Vermeil didn't exactly shoot the idea down. "I didn't say that," he said. "I said no one talked to me about that." Vermeil coached the Chiefs from 2001-05 for five seasons, but Kansas City only made the playoffs once during his tenure.
