By now you've heard that part of his story. His wife is from the area, and their first date was at Jack Stack. When the Chiefs introduced him as their new general manager, he called it his dream job.
But living in a place can be very different than visiting. He just bought a house here. This is real now. Working a dream job can be very different than dreaming about it. So we wanted to check in after three months and see if anything had changed.
"No way, this place is awesome, man," he says. "Here's an example. We went down to Oklahoma Joe's (on Wednesday), Andy and I and some other guys, and we sat in line for 40 minutes. The people were great. This is the good thing about the Midwest: Everybody respects your space. It's a cool thing.
"Some guys would come up and talk to us; they're genuinely excited. That's what it's all about. It's the people, man."
