Who will be the Kansas City Chiefs next GM? that’s the question you’re asking after you get over the shock of the news that John Dorsey is out as the GM of the Chiefs. The Chiefs made the new official this afternoon with nothing else like who would replace him.
A few early names:
Andy Reid: Yeah, I said it. He’s done it before in Philly. However, Reid has said in Kansas City that he enjoys being just the coach and not the front office guy. Was that just talk or what? UPDATE: Sam says this isn’t happening
Brett Veach: He works in the Chiefs front office now and was reportedly up for the Bills GM job. He seems like an obvious internal candidate. Also has ties to Andy Reid.
Mike Borgonzi: Like Veach, he’s in the front office now. This would be an internal promotion. Field Yates mentioned him.
Chris Ballard: Oops. He’s the Colts GM now. This is why it’s hard to believe the Chiefs had been planning this for a while. They just let Ballard, a very talented personnel guy, leave for the Colts earlier this year.
Someone else connected to Andy Reid: Who? I’m not sure but it’s the NFL so it’s all about connections. Tom Heckert was a name that was thrown around when Dorsey was hired in 2013.
The Chiefs job should be a good one, a very good one. The Chiefs roster is in good shape, Andy Reid is one of the best coaches in the NFL and they have a young quarterback.
