ESPN: Reid To Be Next Chiefs Head Coach

Posted 2 years ago

By John P Tretbar


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.

    All the new coaches and managers in the world wont help if they dont start major recruitment! We need players who produce! Offensive line who protect their QB and a QB who has confidence in himself! Those kind of people cost money! You get what you pay for, and if a player doesn’t produce week after week, he rides the pine no matter what.

    Propmanager, you are 100% CORRECT about everything you said!!! The problems we have had with the Chiefs in the past cannot be blamed on any one situation or one person, I think we will be on the right track with Reid, he seems to be a “take charge” kind of guy!! Lets get some OFFENSE and a QB, we’re goin to the playoffs!!!!

    I hope you’re right “Chiefs Fan 4 Life”. Remember we can’t expect Reid to fix everything the first year. It may take a season or two. I would love to go to the playoffs next year or the year after for sure! ooOoooOoooOoo Tomahawk Chop arm!!!

    Propmanager, I am going to TRY the “patience” thing,(haha) I think it will be so worth the wait!!! I’ve been a Chiefs fan many years, we are due a good season!! I think morale will be boosted with the “changing of the guard” and we will see a whole new energized group of guys out there this fall!! Looking forward to CAMP this year too!! GO CHIEFS!!!!
