Chiefs | Peterson reacts to Saunders' stories

Doug Tucker, of the Associated Press, reports Kansas City Chiefs president Carl Peterson contacted media outlets Friday, Jan. 20, and angrily denied reports that he once promised to make Al Saunders his head coach. Several media outlets reported that two years ago Saunders was promised, or at least led to believe, that he would be head coach when Dick Vermeil retired. "Al Saunders was never promised the head coaching job of the Kansas City Chiefs," Peterson said in a hastily organized conference call with reporters from the Kansas City Star and The Associated Press. "I'm telling you he wasn't. I really take offense that's in the paper as true. It's not."
