We told you earlier that various reports were emerging that the Kansas Chiefs would be hiring former NFL QB Doug Pederson as their new offensive coordinator.
Now we have a report that they have hired him.
From Adam Caplan:
As others have noted, Eagles QB Doug Pederson has joined the Chiefs. He’s their OC, source confirmed.

This is the first report I have seen that the hire has actually been made. The Chiefs have yet to make anything official so until then we won’t know for sure. It may be that the team is waiting to announce all of its major staff as once.
Whatever the plan, it looks like Pederson is a lock.
