According to a report, former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed has accepted a Bill Walsh Minority Coaching Fellowship position with the Kansas City Chiefs. Reed will be a part of head coach Andy Reid’s staff throughout training camp and the NFL preseason. The fellowship program is designed to help increase the number of full-time NFL minority coaches. All 32 teams participate in this program on an annual basis.
The program was created to help minority candidates:
- Gain Experience
- Ultimately gain a full-time NFL coaching position
The fellowship program doesn’t impose any imperatives on NFL teams, but it does urge teams to consider program participants.
Having him on the staff could prove to be a coup for developing wide receivers like Jon Baldwin, Devon Wylie, Justin Hemingway, and Dexter McCluster. Reed was a standout wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills who is now a seven-time finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
