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.
#Chiefs assistant head coach Brad Childress has been planning to retire, sources tell @JamesPalmerTV and me, and it doesn’t sound like Andy Reid will be able to talk him out of it after Matt Nagy’s departure. He’s at peace. More turnover in KC.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 8, 2018
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.
