Chiefs’ Brad Childress planning to retire, report says

Just an hour ago I wondered if Chiefs assistant head coach Brad Childress would be a potential in-house candidate for the now vacant offensive coordinator job after Matt Nagy was hired by the Chicago Bears.

Turns out, Childress won’t be the coordinator — because he’s planning to retire.

The report says that Reid is trying to talk him out of it and I can see why. The Chiefs would be losing one of their top offensive minds and a longtime Reid assistant. In addition to the loss of Nagy, that’s a lot to take on in one offseason.

The Chiefs do reportedly like Eric Bieniemy as a potential coordinator candidate, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported. He’s already on staff as the running backs coach.
