Andy Reid became the next coach of the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, the team announced on Twitter. The length of the deal is five years, sources told the Associated Press. A news conference to introduce Reid is scheduled for Monday.
The deal reportedly will give the longtime Eagles coach broad authority over football decisions. 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.
Makes you wonder why a decorated coach like Reid would take on a team as abysmal as the Chiefs. Only he knows.
