Bills looking at Chiefs’ Brad Childress for OC, per report

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills hired Sean McDermott as their head coach and this could affect the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills are interested in hiring Brad Childress as their offensive coordinator, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Childress is currently part of the Chiefs dual-OC setup along with Matt Nagy. What’s the connection to Buffalo? Both McDermott and Childress are under the Big Red coaching tree. McDermott and Childress were with Andy Reid in Philly. Childress has been in KC since Reid arrived in 2013. He was the spread game coordinator before taking the co-OC job last year.

If Childress left, Nagy would be a candidate take over on his own, according to Rapoport.

Losing your OC two years in a row? The Andy Reid influence is alive and well. We will see if this happens or if the Chiefs winning and making a Super Bowl run could hurt Childress’s chances.
