The Kansas City Chiefs announced today that they have hired Phil Emery to serve as their director of college scouting. Emery most recently served as the Falcons Eastern regional scout and has been with the Falcons since May 2004. Emery served as the director of college scout in Atlanta before being re-assigned when the team hired David Caldwell last year.
The team also announced yesterday that they made additional changes in their front office. Marvin Allen will replace Emery as Eastern regional scout, coming over to the team after sixteen years working within the New England Patriots organization, most of which as an area scout. Allen played running back for the Patriots from 1988-91 before joining the team’s front office.
The team also promoted Mark Olson to be Western regional scout, after ten years working in the team’s scouting department. He joined the team as a scouting assistant in 1998, and has been scouting the West for the past four years.
The team also hired Bob Kronenberg to join as an area scout. Kronenberg was an assistant coach with the Georgia Force of the AFL for the past seven years. He was an assistant head coach and defensive coordinator with the team which is also owned by Falcons owner Arthur Blank. Prior to joining the Force in 2002, he worked as an assistant coach with the Nashville Kats.
