A couple of reports are emerging that the Kansas City Chiefs and new head coach Andy Reid have decided on former NFL QB and Eagles QB coach, Doug Pederson, as their new offensive coordinator.
The first report came last night:

We first told you that Pederson was a candidate back on Monday. Check out that piece for a bit about Pederson’s backgound.
It seems like this is going to be a done deal so I will hope for the best. I am not sure how I feel about the Chiefs bringing on a first time offensive coordinator. I don’t want to count Pederson out before he’s begun but there is bound to be a learning curve and I think I’d rather just have an experience play-caller taking care of what has been a pitiful Chiefs offense.
What I like about Pederson is that he is a former QB so he will be able to relate to whoever is throwing the rock for the Chiefs next season.
We are still waiting on official word of the hires from the Chiefs. I wouldn’t be surprised if the team is waiting to make a mass announcement of the new staff.
What do you think, Addicts? Are you happy with Reid’s (potential) choice of Doug Pederson?
