Reid arrives in KC, nears deal to become coach
Reid and the Chiefs have reportedly agreed to a deal giving the longtime Eagles coach broad authority over football decisions. His deal came hours after the Chiefs announced they had parted with general manager Scott Pioli after four tumultuous seasons.
Reid inherits a team that went 2-14, matching the worst record in franchise history. But he’ll also have the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, and with five players voted to the Pro Bowl, Kansas City has building blocks in place to make a quick turnaround.
Reid has experience turning around franchises, too.
He took over a team in Philadelphia that was just 3-13, but two years later went 11-5 and finished second in the NFC East. That began a stretch of five straight years in which Reid won at least 11 games and included a trip to the Super Bowl after the 2004 season.
During his tenure, the Eagles made nine playoff appearances, while Kansas City made three, and won 10 playoff games _ something the Chiefs haven’t done since 1993. Meanwhile, the Chiefs cycled through five head coaches and are now on their third in three years.
Despite a 130-93-1 record and the most wins in Eagles history, he was just 12-20 the past two seasons. Reid also dealt with personal tragedy when his oldest son, Garrett, died during training camp after a long battle with drug addiction.
Reid will have more authority in Kansas City than any previous coach.
Hunt told The Associated Press this week that he was changing the Chiefs‘ organizational structure so that the coach and general manager report directly to him. Since his late father Lamar founded the team 53 years ago, the coach typically reported to the general manager.
