As a Head Coach in the NFL with the three teams, Romeo Crennel has an overall record of 32-63. While he never quite caught on as a Head Coach he was an invaluable defensive mind and a top-level defensive positional coach and coordinator. Each of the three teams he was the Head Coach of had problems that were by no means entirely his fault. Crennel served on the coaching staff of some great teams and leaves an amazing legacy behind in the NFL.
