Chiefs name Nick Sirianni as assistant

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI (TICKER) —The Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday added two coaches, naming Ronnie Bradford as a defensive assistant and Nick Sirianni as an offensive quality control coach.

Bradford had spent the previous six seasons as an assistant with the Denver Broncos, serving in a number of capacities.

Sirianni was the wide receivers coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania the past three seasons.

Here's some more info on Sirianni:

''It's a lot of stuff I do (at IUP),'' Sirianni said. ''It's breaking down opponent's film, and then just a lot of stuff from there, like helping to write up playbooks and tip sheets for our guys. The main thing is breaking down the film and really learning how to coach in the NFL, which is exciting.''

Sirianni said he could be in line for either an assistant quarterbacks or assistant wide receiver coaching positions with the Chiefs as well, which would only further enhance his rapid rise up the coaching ranks.

Boy's Club Moment

Ironically, it was Sirianni's ties to Mount Union and a little bit of good fortune that ultimately helped him get the job in Kansas City.

Home on break during his sophomore year at Mount Union, Sirianni happened to be wearing a Mount Union T-shirt while he was working out at the Lakewood YMCA. The T-shirt drew the attention of another man nearby. That man just happened to be Haley, then the wide receivers coach with the Chicago Bears, who was vacationing in Chautauqua County.

A bond was formed.

Not too thrilling...the Chiefs are for the most part keeping the staff pretty young. I know there was a post on Bradford, but wanted to include Sirianni in the mix since the article included info on both.
