Chiefs Chasing Andy Reid



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.


Other coaching murmurs:

Browns interview Ken Whisenhunt
Whisenhunt interviewed Wednesday with the Browns about their head coaching vacancy

Buffalo may be interested in Jim Haslett
The Bills are trying to get in on the Chip Kelly derby, but they’re clearly putting together a Plan B. The Bills also have an interview lined up with Lovie Smith.

Citing multiple sources, ESPN reports the Chicago Bears will interview New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. for their vacant coaching position

Per Bill Williamson, oregon coach Chip Kelly has interviews lined up with just about everyone except AFC West teams.

That’s all for now.


Go Broncos!
