Chiefs to interview Keith Armstrong, Falcons special teams coach, per report

The NFL's best teams usually see their coordinators and assistant coaches swiped for possible head coaching jobs. That's the case in Atlanta as the Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly interviewing offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and special teams coach Keith Armstrong.


The Kansas City Chiefs are interviewing Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator for their head coaching job after the team fired Romeo Crennel on Monday. But he's not the only member of the Falcons getting an interview. According to Alex Marvez, Keith Armstrong is getting an interview, too.

The Chiefs interview of Koetter will take place in Atlanta on Tuesday, according to reports. No word on when the Armstrong interview will take place.
