The Chiefs have found their head man, hiring Andy Reid to a reported five-year contract. The next step is filling out a coaching staff, and the rumors on that are flying all over the place.
Remember yesterday when we laid out all the rumors surrounding Andy Reid and the Chiefs coaching staff?
Well, we have a couple more rumors to add to the mix.
The latest names for the Chiefs offensive coordinator are Brad Childress and Doug Pederson, and we have a couple of competing reports on who it'll be.
Not sure yet about the San Diego Chargers, but the Kansas City Chiefs became a more challenging rival today. First they hired Andy Reid as head coach. And I've been told Reid is hoping to making Brad Childress his offensive coordinator.

I hear good chance Doug Pederson will be Andy's offensive coordinator & Matt Nagy QBs coach. Matt was quality control in Philly, Doug QBs.— Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) January 5, 2013
You can take a guess where Frank's information comes from. The Denver Post reporting on Childress is a little odd.
So the Chiefs next offensive coordinator will be Brad Childress ... unless it's Doug Pederson ... and only if it's not Pat Shurmur.
