Andy Reid says having two offensive coordinators will benefit the Chiefs the most

The news that Adam Teicher reported earlier this week is now official. The Kansas City Chiefs will have co-offensive coordinators this year in Brad Childress and Matt Nagy after losing Doug Pederson to the Eagles.

"We went through our process of finding an offensive coordinator and determined having coach Childress and coach Nagy serve as co-coordinators would benefit our football team the most," Chiefs coach Reid said in a statement. "They both have a great feel for our system."

Childress has ties with Reid dating back to their time in Philly when he was Reid's offensive coordinator and has spent the past three seasons as the Chiefs spread game analyst. Nagy has been the Chiefs quarterbacks coach for the past three seasons.

"Brad lends a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge to our offense," Reid said. "Matt has done a nice job tutoring the quarterbacks the last three years and will continue to work with the QBs, but will also take the next step in his professional growth and coordinate the offense with Brad. His feel for the game and well thought out ideas each week have impressed me."

It feels like a too many cooks in the kitchen situation to me. However, this is Reid's offense and he's going to be driving all of this. If anyone is going to make it work, it'll be him.

The only question here is which coach gets the first half and which one gets the second half?
