Koetter Re-Signs With Atlanta

While the Kansas City Chiefs interview former Eagles head coach Andy Reid in Philly, we can tell you that one potential candidate for the Chiefs job is out.

The Atlanta Falcons have re-signed offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. Koetter reportedly interviewed with the Chiefs yesterday in Atlanta.

Koetter, despite not being as sexy a choice as Andy Reid (yes, I just used “sexy,” “choice” and “Andy Reid” all in the same sentence) Koetter was drawing interest from a number of teams.

The only other candidate that has been linked to the Chiefs, other than Reid, is Falcons special teams coach Keith Armstrong. It is believed that the Chiefs also interviewed Armstrong while in Atlanta.

If the team did in fact interview Armstrong yesterday, they have satisfied the “Rooney Role” which requires all NFL clubs to interview at least one minority candidate before making a decision on a new head coach.

That means the Chiefs could theoretically hire Reid today.

    NO To Andy Reid!!! I’m going to say the same thing when people were talking about Romeo Crennel!!! It is a bad hire if you hire Andy Reid!!! There are other candidates out there!!! DO NOT HIRE REID!!! I don’t know why people are on this Reid bandwagon but he isn’t the man for the job!! Koetter would have been nice but Mccoy is another guy. But I repeat do not hire Reid!!! Crennel was a bad hire as I said before but I got blasted for that and here we are. do not hire reid clark!!
