Andy Reid is working on his coaching staff, interviewing the in-house candidates earlier this week and now looking at outside options, including former Vikings coach Brad Childress.
Since Andy Reid was hired by the Kansas City Chiefs we've heard a lot of people talking about the coordinator jobs on both offense and defense. Mostly, though, it's been speculation and rumors.
There's now a new report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that feels a little less rumor-y:
Browns OC Brad Childress is in KC today, where he could be hired as either OC or as an advisor to new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 9, 2013
So Brad Childress, huh. He was one of the names brought up over the last week. He worked in Philadelphia with Reid for seven years so I'd be curious what this interview entails. Seems like they know each other well.
Childress may not be the only coach on the way
"I've made calls to coaches," Reid said on Pro Football Talk Live on Wednesday. "I'm starting to bring them in here. We have the first ones on campus."
That's coaches. Plural. So who else is coming?
Update: Adam Teicher has a barrage of news (H/T BAyers2929)
I can confirm Brad Childress visit to #Chiefs. But I'm told he will not be the offensive coordinator. Possibly another assistant's job.— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) January 9, 2013
Also doesn't look like Pat Shurmur, a former Reid assistant with Eagles, will be coming to #Chiefs as offensive coordinator.— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) January 9, 2013
I can also confirm Chiefs interviewed Ray Farmer and John Dorsey for GM position. Farmer is KC's pro personnel director— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) January 9, 2013
