Andy Reid's new coaching staff is in. The new Chiefs head coach announced both coordinators, as well as assistant coaches.

"I'm pleased we were able to get all of these coaches on board," Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. "I have relationships with each of them, and I know their past experiences, work ethics and coaching styles. These are high-character coaches, and each one brings something different to the table for us."

Doug Pederson was named the offensive coordinator. He has spent the last four seasons in Philadelphia where he was last seen coaching the quarterbacks. Pederson also played under Reid his first year in Philadelphia.

"Doug has been around the game a long time, and he has great vision," Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. "As a former player in this league, he sees the game from a different perspective, and that will be a great benefit for our players. He has a knack for developing talent, and he's a good communicator. Doug is ready for this position."

Bob Sutton was named defensive coordinator. He's coming from the Jets, where he's coached since 2000. KaloPhoenix has all you need to know about Bob Sutton right here.
