Andy Heck is the Chiefs new offensive line coach, according to reports

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs had one last spot to fill on their coaching staff as of the last update -- offensive line coach. Per a report, the Chiefs have their man -- Andy Heck.

The Chiefs have reportedly hired Andy Heck to be their new offensive line coach, according to a couple of reports.

Heck comes from the Jacksonville Jaguars where he has been their offensive line coach since 2006.

Heck was a 1989 first round pick out of Notre Dame as an offensive lineman, winning the 1988 National Championship for the Irish.

He played 12 years in the league -- five with the Seattle Seahawks, five with the Chicago Bears and two with the Washington Redskins. 2000 was his final season as a player.

He spent a few years coaching at Virginia after that before joining the Jaguars as assistant offensive line coach in 2004. By 2006 he was promoted to offensive line coach, a position he's held ever since.

Eugene Chung, who worked with Reid in Philly, is the assistant offensive line coach.

At least three other names were attached to the job: Juan Castillo, Reid's former o-line coach in Philly, George Warhop, the Browns offensive line coach, and Tony Sparano, who interviewed on Monday.
