It doesn’t sound like anything is in the works but Michael Vick said on a podcast recently that he has spoken to Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid about getting into coaching some day.
Here is Vick’s quote on the Howard Eskin podcast:
“Yeah well he just wanted to get my thoughts, but we haven’t talked about it since,” Vick said of his conversation with Reid on coaching. “But if I could coach with anybody, I would love to start out with Andy if there was an opportunity. Obviously, I would love it with the Falcons as well. So we’ll see how it goes.”
Bringing former players onto your coaching staff is a smart thing. The Chiefs have a few of those already. Vick has 13 seasons of NFL experience so he has something worth sharing. What would be unique is that most players in the league today grew up wanting to be Michael Vick. Would that be a good thing? Bad thing? I have no idea but I would be interested to find out.
I will say that being on Andy Reid’s coaching staff is usually a good thing for someone. Doug Pederson already got promoted to a head coaching job. Matt Nagy has been promoted to offensive coordinator. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see Brad Childress, now the assistant head coach, get a look as a coordinator someplace. Michael Vick next?
