Brad Childress hired by the Kansas City Chiefs ... finally

After two months of reports talking about it, Brad Childress is finally a member of the Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff. He will be an offensive assistant.

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

It was first rumored way, way back on January 9 that Brad Childress, the Browns offensive coordinator last year and longtime assistant on Andy Reid's staff, was visiting the Chiefs. In the weeks that followed, a number of folks predicted that Childress would eventually land with the Chiefs. He was with the Browns last year but it was unclear if they had released him from his contract to join the Chiefs.

By the time March rolled around, most of us had given up on the idea of Childress joining the Chiefs. But today, out of the blue, there's this from Adam Teicher:

Childress was with Reid from 1999-2002 as the quarterbacks coach and from 2003-2005 as the offensive coordinator before landing the Vikings head coaching job. He spent nearly five seasons in Minnesota before his exit, which then led him to Cleveland, where he was the Browns offensive coordinator last season.
