Kansas City Chiefs assistants Brad Childress, Matt Nagy to split offensive coordinator duties | ESPN

The Kansas City Chiefs plan to split the offensive coordinator's duties between Brad Childress and Matt Nagy, a source said. Details of how those duties will be split are still being determined.

But Matt Nagy? The 37-year-old Nagy has been the Chiefs’ quarterback coach since he came to Kansas City along with Reid in 2013. Otherwise, there isn’t much in his coaching history. Nagy was an entry-level offensive assistant coach for Reid and the Eagles for three years before coming to Kansas City. Other than that, all of Nagy’s coaching experience has been at three high schools in Pennsylvania.

Changes each losing Divisional Round team must adopt |

Eric Berry, Jaye Howard, Derrick Johnson, Sean Smith and Tamba Hali all face uncertain futures. These are not just role players. These five players represented more than 4,500 snaps in 2015 and provide a big part of the foundation of the defense. The Chiefs already started their offseason work by signing defensive end Allen Bailey to an extension. Berry and Howard figure to be priorities because of their age. It's hard to imagine Johnson or Hali in a different uniform.

In 2013, Childress explained his job as one in which he analyzed trends around the league. "I do some advance work," Childress said. "I could be looking at somebody who’s underperforming, or overperforming, if you will, why they’re having their successes. John Dorsey may give me some quarterbacks to look at, which he did when I first came in here, some wide receivers to look at, grade. It’s a little bit of everything, it’s a hodgepodge."

"This is family," Berry said. "At the same time, we will sit down and talk about it when we talk about it, but right now I’m just thankful for my teammates, my coaches and everybody that has something to do with me being back on the field this year. This is something special. Like I said, we’ll talk about it."

What Doug Pederson's Eagles' staff might look like |

Wide Receivers: Former Eagle Greg Lewis, who was on Sean Payton's staff in New Orleans is being rumored. It's not certain if the Saints would, or could, let him leave. If Jason Avant didn't play so well in the Chiefs' playoff loss last Saturday, he might have thought about retiring and becoming a coach. Another name is Ronald Curry, who was the 49ers' receivers coach the past three years but is not being retained by Chip Kelly.

Corry said the franchise tag for safeties this year (likely $10 million) is palatable — unlike the linebacker position for Johnson and Hali — which makes that a potential option in Berry’s case. But Corry noted the Chiefs should still be motivated to get Berry signed because the first-year cap hit will be significantly lower than a franchise figure, which is a good sign considering Berry, when asked after the game if he’d like to return to the Chiefs, said he would.

"I can't tell you I look at the list and it shocks me," Reid said. "That's not where I am with it. I know some of these guys are going to return. That's how it rolls. Which ones and how it works into the (salary) cap and all that, that's Dorsey's baby there." Reid said that Dorsey is already at work on the situation, even though free agency doesn't begin until March. But not all of the decisions will be entirely up to him.

"I saw him block the guy trying to down the ball. It’s hard to tell from the coaching film where the hit occurred, but it was a legal play," Belichick said. "We’re allowed to block him. He didn’t give a fair catch signal so he’s allowed to block, and then after the play when (Dezman) Moses came over and snatched his face mask and started shaking him, I’m not really sure what all happened on that. There were a lot of bodies around there, a lot of pushing and shoving and all that. I don’t know. I think you’d have to ask the officials exactly what they called on that."
