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.

That’s all for now.
