Almost three months after Andy Reid took over as Chiefs head coach, he was able to hire Brad Childress as a senior offensive assistant.

Childress, 56, was Reid's offensive coordinator and/or quarterbacks coach for the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999 through 2005. He then left to become the head coach for the Minnesota Vikings, where he had a 39-35 record and won two NFC Central championships.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday that Brad Childress has joined the team's coaching staff to serve as its spread game analyst/special projects, reuniting him with Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

Childress worked for coach Reid in Philadelphia (1999-2005), where he tutored the Eagles QBs for the first three years (1999-2001), before taking over as the team's offensive coordinator (2005-2008).

Draft Spotlight- Day 5: Cordarrelle Patterson from The Mothership

Cordarrelle Patterson (pronounced "CORE-dare-uhl") is one of the two 'most explosive players in the draft', according to NFL Network's Mike Mayock, who named WVU WR Tavon Austin, as the other.

Patterson wasn't worried about only having one season at Tennessee, before showcasing his talents during the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, held February 23-26 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.

Brad Childress Finally Joins Chiefs from ESPN

This is a good hire for Reid. It is always good to have a familiar voice to bounce things off of and it is always good to have the experience of a former head coach on the staff.

Ziggy Ansah Refuses To Break On Pro Day from USA Today

"I showed them what they wanted to see, that I could go through all the drills that they put out there, and I did whatever they had me do."

Ansah, who this week visited with coaches from Tampa Bay and Oakland, has already gone through a private workout with the Kansas City Chiefs and later this week begins an extensive list of visits, starting with a trip to see the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chiefs: Brad Childress Hired As 'Spread Game Analyst' from CBS Sports

The team didn't specify what exactly Childress' responsibilities will be, but it's probably safe to say, Childress will be looking to help implement the spread offense in a way that works to the strengths of new quarterback Alex Smith. Smith ran a version of the spread at Utah under then-coach Urban Meyer, so he does have some familiarity with it.

NFL Draft Buzz: 49ers, Dolphins Looking To Trade Up? from

The former league scout pegged the Dolphins as one of three teams poised to trade up. Miami, in theory, wants to hop in front of the San Diego Chargersat No. 11 for the chance to land one of the draft's top three offensive tackles. "All signs point toward" the Kansas City Chiefs grabbing Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel at No. 1, according to Jeremiah, but that still leaves Central Michigan's Eric Fisher and Oklahoma's Lane Johnson.

Carson Palmer, Darren McFadden Holding Back Oakland Raiders from

Looking for nuggets of futility? When it comes to McFadden, there are plenty. Do you realize he topped 100 yards rushing just three times last season (with two coming against the lowly Kansas City Chiefs)? Likewise, he topped 20 carries in just three games -- or one fewer than he missed entirely with injury. Then there's my personal favorite: In seven of the games in which he actually played, McFadden averaged less than 3 yards per carry.

Crabtree also refused to say anything bad about Smith, who was traded to Kansas City earlier this month. "Like I said, Alex Smith is a good guy," the 49ers wide receiver said. "He's been through a lot being a San Francisco 49er through all the boos and in the last year, the year before that he's been through so much. I wish him success with the Chiefs, man."
