KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs didn't wait long to find Bob Sutton's replacement as defensive coordinator. 

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the Chiefs are hiring Steve Spagnuolo as defensive coordinator. Spagnuolo did not coach in 2018, but most recently served as defensive coordinator and interim head coach for the New York Giants from 2015-2017. Spagnuolo was the head coach of the St. Louis Rams from 2009-2011. 

Spagnuolo led the New York Giants defense in 2007-2008 when the Giants defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. 

His first break in the NFL came back in 1999 when he joined Andy Reid's staff in Philadelphia as a defensive assistant.

Spagnuolo is known for his aggressive style of defense which uses multiple blitz packages to disrupt the quarterback.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
