AFL

Early Years in Dallas, 1960-1963

The team was owned by Lamar Hunt, who founded the team along with their original league, the American Football League, or AFL in 1960. The Dallas Texans, as they were known then, shared the Cotton Bowl with the NFL's Dallas Cowboys. Lamar Hunt (August 2, 1932 – December 13, 2006) was a promoter of American football, soccer, tennis, basketball, and ice hockey in the United States and an inductee of the first three sports halls of fame. ...

The move to Kansas City

After three seasons — including an AFL championship in 1962 — it was apparent that Dallas couldn’t support two teams. Hunt investigated opportunities to move his team to several cities for the 1963 season, including Miami, Seattle and New Orleans. Hunt wanted to find a city to which he could commute easily from Dallas, and when he was unable to secure Tulane Stadium because the university didn’t want its football program to compete with a pro team, he turned to Kansas City, where Mayor H. Roe Bartle persuaded him to move to the Midwest.[1] The 1963 Kansas City Chiefs season was the inaugural season of Kansas City’s new football franchise. ...

It was a negotiation conducted in secrecy. On several occasions Hunt and Jack Steadman, the team’s general manager, were in Kansas City and met with businessmen. Bartle introduced Hunt as “Mr. Lamar” in all the meetings with other Kansas City businessmen. Steadman was introduced as “Jack X.”[1] Jack W. Steadman (born September 14, 1928) is the former chairman, president and general manager for the Kansas City Chiefs professional team and has been associated with the team every year since its inception in 1960 as the Dallas Texans. ...


Most impressive about this move was the support the team received from the community even before the team announced the move. Hunt made the move dependent upon the ability of Kansas City Mayor H. Roe Bartle and the Kansas City community to guarantee him 35,000 in season ticket sales. Hunt had arrived at this number because that was the Texans' average attendance at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Harold Roe Bennett Strudevant Bartle (June 25, 1901 - May 9, 1974) // General Description Using the word legend may be an understatement when talking about Harold Roe Bennett Sturdevant Bartle. ... For the Cotton Bowl game, see Cotton Bowl (game). ...


Bartle called to his office 20 business leaders and called upon them to form an association later known as "The Gold Coats", whose sole objective was to sell and take down payments on the 35,000 season tickets required. Not an easy task when one considers the move was still secret and the Gold Coats had to sell season tickets to people without knowing the team name, where it was coming from, who the owner was, what league it would play in, who the players or coaches were, when the team would play its first game in Kansas City, what its team colors would be or where it would play. Hunt gave Bartle a 4 month deadline. Bartle and the Gold Coats made good in only 8 weeks. Later, Hunt admitted he was really only hoping for 20,000, for which he still would have moved the franchise.


Hunt, with a roster replete with players who had played college football in Texas, wanted to maintain a lineage to the team’s roots and wanted to call the club the Kansas City Texans. "The Lakers stayed the Lakers when they moved from Minnesota to California," he reasoned. "But Jack Steadman convinced me that wasn’t too smart. It wouldn’t sell." The team was renamed Chiefs — one of the most popular suggestions Hunt received in a name-the-team contest, along with Kansas City Mules — and began playing in Kansas City’s Municipal Stadiumin 1963.[1] Lakers logo 1966-1991 The Los Angeles Lakers are a professional basketball team, based in Los Angeles, California, who play in the National Basketball Association. ...

The name, "Chiefs" is derived from Mayor Bartle, who 35 years prior, founded the Native American-based honor society known as The Tribe of Mic-O-Say within the Boy Scouts of America organization, which earned him the nickname, "The Chief."

The Texans/Chiefs franchise was the flagship team of the American Football League, with the most playoff appearances as an AFL team, six (tied with Oakland), the most American Football League Championships (3), and the most Super Bowl appearances, playing in the first Super Bowl, and in the last to be played between League champions. The Texans won the classic 1962 double-overtime AFL championship game against the Houston Oilers, 20-17, at the time the longest, and still one of the best professional football championship games ever played. The Chiefs dropped the first Super Bowl to the Packers, then pulverized the Vikings 23-7 in the final "true" AFL-NFL World Championsip game after the AFL's last season in 1969.

The Chiefs' first Kansas City home was at 22nd and Brooklyn, called Municipal Stadium, which opened in 1923 and had 49,002 seats. In 1972, the Chiefs moved into the new Arrowhead Stadium. Municipal Stadium, also formerly the home of the Kansas City Royals, the minor-league Kansas City Blues and, most successfully, the Negro Leagues' Kansas City Monarchs, was demolished in 1976 and is now a community garden.

Arrowhead Stadium is half of the Truman Sports Complex, along with Kauffman Stadium (formerly Royals Stadium). Kansas City was viewed as taking an unnecessary risk at the time by building two stadiums instead of the popular multi-use stadiums being built in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and St. Louis. However, with demolition in 2005 of St. Louis' Busch Stadium, the Truman Sports Complex has now out-lived all of the multi-use stadiums built in the same era. While many applaud the Kansas City decision makers for this decision, the move was not quite by design. When it became readily apparent the old Municipal Stadium was not adequate for the Chiefs, the decision was made to build a multi-use stadium for the Chiefs and Charlie Finley's Kansas City A's. Finley proved to be too difficult to work with, demanding a "baseball stadium that could also be used for football" or a baseball only stadium, instead of the other way around.

After much vitriol behind the scenes, Finley decided to move the team to Oakland. However, the discussion made Bartle and his advisors convinced that one stadium would be good but not great. Thus, the decision was made to build two separate stadiums after Finley left town. Coincidentally, Finley moved to Oakland's Alameda County Coliseum, a multi-use stadium in which the A's have played since moving there in 1967.

As the Chiefs, under coach Hank Stram with quarterback Len Dawson at the helm, the team played in the first Super Bowl, losing 35-10 to Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers. They earned revenge three years later, upsetting the Minnesota Vikings 23-7. The team's victory has been considered the "proof" that the AFC was "no fluke", with the Chiefs the enormous underdogs going into the game, the Chiefs cemented a future merger for the AFL and NFL.

With a high powered offense and blistering defense, Hank Stram's innovative play-calling would revolutionize the game. Stram would utilize audibles and line changes that would confuse opponents on the field, giving the Chiefs the advantage. The Chiefs would go on to win 43 games between 1966 and 1969. Five Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinees played for the Chiefs in the era, including quarterback Len Dawson, linebackers Bobby Bell and Willie Lanier, defensive tackle Buck Buchanan and placekicker Jan Stenerud.

Fall from greatness, 1971-1989

In 1971, the Chiefs made it back to the Playoffs as they won the AFC West Title, but on Christmas Day, they lost a double overtime heartbreaker to the Miami Dolphins 27-24. The game would go one to be remembered as "the longest game," clocking in at 82 minutes. The previous longest game was the 1962 AFL Championship in which the Chiefs (then as the Texans) won in double overtime. Jan Stenerud missed two field goals and had another kick blocked in the playoff game. The Dolphins won on a 37-yard field goal by Garo Yepremian. This game is considered as the start of the end of the Chiefs winning legacy for the rest of the 1970s and most of the 1980s. The game was also the last game the Chiefs played at Municipal Stadium.

After going 5-1 during the season, Gannon was replaced by Grbac in the playoff game against Denver. The choice to play Grbac over Gannon still remains controversial in the minds of fans, as Kansas City could have likely won and advanced to the AFC Championship. The 1997 NFL season was the 78th regular season of the National Football League. ...

The following year, with Elvis Grbac back at the helm, the Chiefs fell to 7-9 in 1998.

Vermeil brings an explosive offense

Schottenheimer left as head coach, replaced by his defensive coach Gunther Cunningham. In two years, Cunningham showed little improvement, going 9-7 and 7-9. After the loss of Derrick Thomas, the collapse of the defense was unmistakable. The Chiefs' wins were mostly made by a high scoring offense rather than a powerful defense. Gunther Cunningham has been one of the most successful assistant coaches in the history of the American football Kansas City Chiefs franchise, including a short and relatively unspectacular two years as the head coach before he was replaced in 2001 by Dick Vermeil. ... Derrick Vincent Thomas (January 1, 1967 – February 8, 2000) was an NFL linebacker who played his entire professional career for the Kansas City Chiefs. ...


After coaching the St. Louis Rams to the Super Bowl and retiring, Dick Vermeil was lured out of retirement and took over as head coach in 2001. It was noted that Vermeil would have the team ready for the Super Bowl "within three years," while in fact Vermail would stay in Kansas City for the next five.

The first move the team made was forced after quarterback Elvis Grbac voided his contract, forgoing an 11 million dollar bonus, leaving to lead the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. Vermeil replaced him with his primary pick for the Rams' quarterback, Trent Green.

Another notable replacement was Priest Holmes at running back, who had served as back-up to Baltimore's Jamal Lewis in their Super Bowl season. Additions to the offensive line, including left tackle Willie Roaf from New Orleans, Casey Wiegemann at center, Brian Waters at guard and John Welbourn from Philadelphia helped create the Chiefs' high powered offense. Holmes would go on to break Marshall Faulk's record of 26 touchdowns in a season on December 27, 2003.

Vermeil brought many elements of "The Greatest Show on Turf" from St. Louis to Kansas City's own offense, but much like the Schottenheimer era in the 1990s, the offense didn't win any playoff games in return like St. Louis. The Greatest Show on Turf was the nickname for the offense fielded by the St. ...


The Chiefs went 13-3 in 2003 and their offense, considered by many as one of the most powerful of all time, helped make Kansas City again a favorite to win Super Bowl XXXIX. After starting 9-0, the Chiefs lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in their tenth game following a "guarantee" by Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson. The Chiefs' dream season of 2003 began to lose momentum by November, but they still managed to gain the number two seed in the 2004 playoffs. The mighty homefield advantage of Arrowhead Stadium and their high-powered offense wouldn't lead the Chiefs to glory and the Chiefs lost to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Divisional playoffs in an offensive shootout in which neither team punted, an NFL playoffs first. The Chiefs' defense came under fire immediately after the loss, and Greg Robinson, the team's defensive coordinator, resigned after the season. The 2003 Kansas City Chiefs season resulted in a 13-3 record, and a nine-game winning streak—the franchise’s best in their 40-year history. ...

As with the loss to the Broncos in the 1997 season, this loss led to a poor following season. The Chiefs managed to finish the 2004 season with a 7-9 record. In 2004 Gunther Cunningham was brought back as the defensive coordinator. However, the defense showed little improvement. The offense, unable to record the same high scores as the previous year, was unable to bring in the wins as they had the previous year. For their 2005 campaign, the Chiefs brought in several new players to boost a defense that had finished among the worst units the past three years. The year also saw Larry Johnson start at running back in place of an injured Priest Holmes. But despite winning ten games, the Chiefs became just the fourth team in NFL history to go 10-6 and not reach the playoffs.

Edwards returns to Kansas City

A tearful head coach Dick Vermeil announced his retirement before the final game of the 2005 season. Within two weeks, then-New York Jets head coach Herman Edwards had signed a new 4-year contract to coach the Chiefs. Edwards had previously worked for the Chiefs as NFL scout and defensive backs coach (1990-1995) and had been a close friend of Carl Peterson for more than 30 years. Edwards is the first man to become head coach of the team he interned with in the NFL's Minority Coaching Fellowship program.[2] The Chiefs are currently 7-4 and tied for second place in the AFC West. ...

Chiefs owner and founder Lamar Hunt died on December 13, 2006 due to complications brought on by a ten-year battle with prostate cancer. Hunt was remembered throughout the remainder of the 2006 season all throughout the NFL with moments of silence and ceremonies in Kansas City.

Edwards tried to bring the defense back to Kansas City in the 2006 season, bringing a defensive squad that ranked near the bottom of the NFL back to the top 15. With the losses of offensive coordinator and major offensive contributors in Tony Richardson and Willie Roaf, the Chiefs offense struggled finding its footing in the 2006 season. An offense that shattered records just years before went back to the drawing board. The highlight was a Thanksgiving Day game at Arrowhead Stadium during which the Chiefs beat the hated Broncos. Tony Richardson (June 5, 1928 - November 14, 1991) was a British theatre and film director and producer. ...

Almost immediately after the Chiefs' painful loss to the eventual Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts, the state of the team was brought into question. The Chiefs' off-season began with turmoil over the contract of Tony Gonzalez, and the long-term career of Trent Green in Kansas City. Backup quarterback Damon Huard was signed to a three-year contract in February and Green was not only asked to restructure his contract but offered in trades to other teams. The Chiefs look to improve on their 9-7 record from the 2006 season and begin a new era likely with Damon Huard or Brodie Croyle starting at quarterback. The 2007 Kansas City Chiefs season will begin with the team looking to improve on their 9-7 record in 2006 and try to clinch their first consecutive playoff berth since 1995. ...

Chiefs tragedies

The Texans/Chiefs have been struck by an unusual number of tragic losses in their history.

  • August 30, 1963: Rookie running back Stone Johnson, a sprinter in the 1960 Olympics in Rome, suffered a fractured vertebra in his neck in a preseason game with the Oakland Raiders in Wichita, Kansas. He died 10 days later, on September 8. He was 22.
  • December 12, 1965: Second-year running back Mack Lee Hill dies during surgery to repair a knee injury sustained in a game against the Buffalo Bills three days earlier. He had suffered heatstroke, which was undetected, and this caused a pulmonary embolism during the surgery. He was 25.
  • September 15, 1980: Former Chiefs offensive tackle Jim Tyrer suffered business difficulties following his football career, and suffered from depression, until he shot and killed his wife, and then himself. He was 41.
  • June 29, 1983: After just two seasons with the Chiefs, including winning the 1981 NFL Rookie of the Year award, running back Joe Delaney drowned in Monroe, Louisiana, attempting to rescue two boys from a rain-swollen pit shortly after rescuing one other. He was 24. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Citizens Medal and the NCAA Award of Valor. Delaney was inducted into the Chiefs Hall of fame posthumously in 2005.
  • January 23, 2000: Derrick Thomas, one of the finest linebackers of his era, suffered spinal injuries in a car accident in Kansas City while traveling on icy roads on his way to the airport to attend the NFC Championship Game in St. Louis. The severity of these injuries possibly came as a result of Thomas not wearing a seat belt; his personal assistant, Michael Tellis, also didn't wear his seat belt and died in the accident, while a third passenger who was wearing his seat belt walked away with minor injuries. While still hospitalized, Thomas died from a pulmonary embolism, a complication resulting from his surgery, on February 8. He was 33.
  • December 13, 2006: Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt died December 13, 2006 at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas of complications related to prostate cancer. Upon his death Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called Hunt, "a founder of the NFL as we know it today... He's been an inspiration for me." Said Dan Rooney, Chairman of the Pittsburgh Steelers: "Lamar Hunt was one of the most influential owners in professional football over the past 40-plus years, He was instrumental in the formation of the American Football League and in the AFL-NFL merger, which helped the National Football League grow into America's passion."
