Kareem Hunt glows about Kansas City’s coaching staff
Kareem Hunt is no longer a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, but he still has an everlasting connection with the organization. While speaking about the Chiefs being the reigning Super Bowl champions, Hunt made some glowing remarks for Kansas City’s coaching staff.
“I’ve been moved on from that,” Hunt said about his time with Kansas City, via the Akron Beacon Journal. “But I love those guys. I’ve got brothers on that team. I came in with a lot of those players. I love the coaches there. They’re all good people and they deserved it, and I’m happy for them. I talk to a lot of them, and I’m very happy for them. They’re champs. They deserve it. I know how hard that team works and how hard they stress to be great.”
Just this past season, following his time with the Chiefs, Hunt played in his first season with the Cleveland Browns. The former third-round pick would contribute 464 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns despite sharing touches with Nick Chubb.
However, before Hunt joined the Browns in 2019, he was once the featured running back for the Chiefs. Hunt began his career with the Chiefs in 2017 as a third-round pick out of Toledo.
In his first two seasons in Kansas City, Hunt would accumulate 2,984 scrimmage yards and 25 touchdowns. Sadly, he would make a poor choice off of the field, with a video surfacing of him kicking a woman.
As a result, Hunt would be released by the Chiefs before the end of the 2019 campaign. Even though he doesn’t wear a Chiefs uniform anymore, Hunt still maintains a relationship with his former teammates and coaches. Meanwhile, he doesn’t have any grudges toward Kansas City and was elated to see his former team hoist the Lombardi trophy.
