Chiefs hire Tim Terry away from Packers as director of pro personnel | The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs have hired Tim Terry away from Green Bay to be their director of pro personnel, a source confirmed to The Star on Wednesday.

Terry, 42, will replace Will Lewis, who served in the role the last four seasons.

Terry, a former NFL linebacker, has been with the Packers since 2004, when he joined the team as a pro personnel assistant. In 2008, he was promoted to assistant director of pro personnel, the position he held until he was hired away by the Chiefs.

"I think [the Chiefs are] committed to me [only] through this year,'' Smith said. "That's just the nature of it. If you don't go out there and perform, I mean, coach [Andy] Reid and [quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy] are very honest. You've got to go out there and do your deal. We all have to.

“I don’t think you want to shy away from anything — I just think you want to be real,” Smith said of the dynamic between two starting-caliber quarterbacks. “You want to be honest, almost even embrace (it). Sometimes it can be awkward, and it is. But you just embrace that and be real, and I think everybody kind of appreciates that. I just kind of emphasized that to him, that any of that extra curricular stuff that goes on elsewhere just doesn’t take place here. That’s just kind of the environment we have.”

Smith became familiar with Mahomes and his game before the draft. The Chiefs' coaching staff, as they do each year, showed combine video of each of the draftable QBs to the veteran quarterbacks, Smith included.

"The little bit you saw, he was a kid with a big arm," Smith said. "He could throw it. This certainly wasn't in-depth analysis we were doing. We were having fun with it more than anything."
