5 months ago Update 22 comments
The Kansas City Chiefs, not the Cardinals, are looking like the final destination for Ex-Eagles head coach Andy Reid.
Chris Mortensen, commenting on Mike and Mike in the Morning, said
"The Chiefs were trying to close a deal with Andy Reid. At this point I’m going to be surprised if Andy Reid is not the Chiefs’ coach."
If the Chiefs land Reid, my thought is that Scott Pioli is finished. Andy is likely to get the Mike Holmgren-like total control in order to seal the deal. It would also go a long way to making the AFC West relevant once more. The Pioli/Haley/Crennel operation hasn’t yielded
Cleveland.com is reporting that Tom Heckert would go with Reid to KC as well. Heck was with Reid in Philly before leaving to become GM in Cleveland under Holmgren.
UPDATE: The Chiefs and Andy Reid are on the verge of an agreement to make him the next head coach.
Sensing that they won’t land Reid, the Cardinals have asked permission to interview Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley for their head coaching spot.

In other coaching news today:
Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli isn't out of the woods yet and he is still with the team, but it is apparent that may not be the case for much longer. There have been murmurs about former Bills, Colts and Panthers GM Bill Polian being the next GM for the Chiefs, but a PFT source denies it will be Polian.
Mike Holmgren would like everyone to know that he is available and will entertain offers.
Ed Werder reports that former Bears head man Lovie Smith is in demand. Apparently, the Arizona Cardinals and the Buffalo Bills are two of the interested parties. Add Andy Reid and Mike McCoy as two more interviews for the Cardinals, who appear to be on a mission to get their's first.
Oregon head coach Chip Kelly is the hottest name from the college ranks expected to make the jump to the NFL. Odds are in favor of that happening. Philly and the Browns have him at the top of their Wish List.
