ESPN: Reid To Be Next Chiefs Head Coach
ESPN is reporting that Andy Reid has reached an agreement to become the next coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. The network cited league sources saying the contract is being reviewed by attorneys and is expected to be finalized Friday.
Reid’s deal comes shortly after the Chiefs and general manager Scott Pioli mutually agreed to part ways after four seasons.
According to ESPN, the Chiefs held a meeting with the coaching staff Friday morning, presumably to talk about Kansas City’s job search and ongoing talks with Reid.
Reid spent 1999-2012 as Philadelphia’s coach, leading the Eagles to the playoffs nine times during that period. He won 130 regular-season games and 10 playoff games. The Chiefs, meanwhile, had 98 wins, three postseason appearances and no postseason wins under five different head coaches, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
