UPDATE 11:10 AM
The first coaching hire of the 2012 NFL offseason has been made, as the Kansas City Chiefs have named former Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid as their new HC. Reid becomes the 13th HC in franchise history while taking over a Chiefs team that is 29-67 since the start of the 2007 season. Only the St. Louis Rams (22-73-1) have a worse record over the last six seasons. Reid also led the Eagles to the playoffs nine times in 14 seasons, while the Chiefs haven’t won a playoff game since 1993.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Kansas City Chiefs have fired general manager Scott Pioli in order to pave the way for head coach Andy Reid to take over as the team’s next head coach and oversee personnel moves.
Report came out yesterday that the Cleveland Browns had an interview earlier this week with Penn State Head Coach Bill O’Brien, but O’Brien later notified Penn State officials to say he would remain there and not pursue an NFL job.
The Kansas City Chiefs are on the verge of hiring former Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid as the franchise’s next head coach. They have the #1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and Reid is expected to take over complete control of football operations leading to current current Chiefs GM Scott Pioli being fired.
The Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders coaching staffs will coach in this year’s Senior Bowl.
The Tennessee Titans will interview ex-Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice for the same position in Tennessee.
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson will have to be re-examined soon to determine if the knee injury that bothered him all season will require surgery.
