The Kansas City Chiefs new head coach is the highest rated head coach to change jobs this offseason.

It's mid-July which means many NFL analysts are filling up their columns or television time with every list and breakdown and preview they can possibly think of. Over at CBS Sports, Pete Prisco has decided to move beyond the actual players and break down the decision makers with his NFL head coach rankings for the 2013 season.

The good news for the Kansas City Chiefs is that their new head coaching hire is considered to be the best of the offseason, at least by Prisco. Andy Reid slid right inside the top 10 in Prisco's rankings -- in fact right at that specific slot, No. 10.

Prisco writes: "He had eight seasons of double-digit victories in 14 years with the Eagles, and he went to postseason nine times and went to the Super Bowl once. He is 10-9 in 19 playoff games. But his team was 4-12 last year, which cost him his job. Reid can coach, even if Eagles fans love to dispute that."

Reid is No. 8 among active coaches in win percentage, so it's a spot that fits him well. The top 10 alone is interesting since Prisco slots Sean Payton, the Saints head coach who sat out the entire season last year due to suspension from the team, at No. 4.

Reid is also the highest rated AFC West coach, beating the Broncos' John Fox by two slots. Dennis Allen of the Raiders and Mike McCoy of the Chargers are ranked No. 27 and No. 30, respectively.
