The Kansas City Chiefs made it official with Andy Reid on Friday, making him the 13th head coach in franchise history. Reid takes over for Romeo Crennel, who was fired earlier in the week following a 2-14 season.
Reid landed in Kansas City earlier in the day — accompanied by Chiefs owner Clark Hunt — and received the full paparazzi treatment. From the minute he got off the plane, there were photographers and a news chopper (!) following his every move.
Once the popular caravan arrived at Arrowhead, Reid inked his deal and the team announced a press conference for 1pm Monday afternoon.
Considering how poorly his final two seasons in Philadelphia played out, there can be legitimate debate about just how much Reid has left in the tank. His resume before those two seasons was fantastic and we’ve seen time and again how huge a change of scenery can be.
Before we can start worrying about any of that, the focus will be on Reid’s staff and what direction they decide to go with the first pick in April’s NFL Draft.
