Chiefs Officially Announce Andy Reid As Head Coach

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have officially made Andy Reid the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.

We’ve known the deal was done for most of the day but this evening, Reid and his wife officially touched down in Kansas City and the new coach made things official by putting pen to paper.

It is certainly a historic day for the Kansas City Chiefs. As we learned with Scott Pioli, new beginnings, while they can be exciting, are not always a guarantee of success. We’ll have to make sure we scrutinize the Reid regime ad closely as we did the Pioli era.

Still, now is the time for cautious optimism. The Chiefs have a fresh start and a new hope.

Now let’s just hope that translates to wins on the field.

We’ll have much more tomorrow but for now, what do you think of the hiring of “Big Red?”

    I think this hiring has great potential. I think Reid needed a change of scenery and we needed a good coach that improves our chances of having a productive QB. I believe that Reid does this.

    Right now I believe this hire to be a “Good Hire.” After I see the coaching staff of Reid it could bump up to a “Very Good Hire.” However, my opinion doesn’t translate into on the field production. Until I see the Chiefs winning games, I’m going to hold off on calling this a “Great Hire.”

    Questions that need to be answered quickly moving forward:
    1) Who is the GM?
    2a) Who is the Defensive Coordinator?
    2b) What defensive scheme will the Chiefs run?
    3) Who is the Offensive Coordinator?
