The Chiefs haven't yet formally announced the hiring of Andy Reid but it's coming. Reid is tasked with filling out a coaching staff and there are a number of suggested candidates.
Andy Reid will be or has been hired by the Kansas City Chiefs ... even if the Kansas City Chiefs aren't saying that.
But Reid is already literally in the building. If this doesn't happen then it would be a train wreck of epic proportions.
So, the Reid deal is about to get done and now we want to know who will be on his coaching staff. The usual rounds of candidates have been thrown out there -- mostly guys he's worked with before. Dot-connecting type of stuff.
It seems there's not one person on the Chiefs current coaching staff who should feel safe right now.
I don't have a good read on who actually is and isn't a candidate to be on Reid's new staff but here's the whirlwind of rumors and reports...
How about Pat Shurmur?
How about Shurmur AND Childress?
Or he could just hire them all.
Andy Reid will have a host of options to pick from with his staff. Many expect Shurmur (OC), Castillo (OL), Childress perhaps as QB coach— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 4, 2013
Maybe not ALL of them.
Well, we all know it won't be Morty Mornhinweg.
Think I saw this already but Marty Mornhinweg won't follow Andy Reid to KC. Hear he has about 4 other options as OC.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 4, 2013
Gimme another name. Monte Kiffin? Sure!
I won't be shocked if Monte Kiffin lands in KC as DC.— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) January 4, 2013
Mentioned this yesterday. It's very real. RT @movethesticks: I won't be shocked if Monte Kiffin lands in KC as DC.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 4, 2013
Mel Tucker is another new one.
So if Jags wanted to prevent allowing, say, DC Mel Tucker to interview for coordinator jobs (and I'd bet KC would be interested) they could— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 4, 2013
If you can decipher this...
Coach reid wants to take w. Pederson,castillo(but balt wants 2),brazier (DL),Culley,E.Chung,M.nagy,T.Williams,burkholder,and strenght ch— Howard Eskin (@howardeskin) January 4, 2013
And this ... well this is just too funny now:
Wonder if Brad Childress will be part of Andy Reid's coaching staff if Reid does take the Cardinals job?— Judd Zulgad (@1500ESPNJudd) January 1, 2013
