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.
If #Chiefs lose, co-OC Brad Childress could be coaching his last game in KC. Sources say he’s a top target for #Bills OC, as is Greg Olson.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 15, 2017
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.
If Brad Childress left #Chiefs for BUF, KC is in good position. Co-OC Matt Nagy could take over as full-time OC after a year of sharing it.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 15, 2017
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.
