In 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs recorded one of their worst seasons in team history, finishing with a 2-14 record. The team was in disarray and the fan base was restless, calling for some deep cleaning of the organization.

After a short coaching search, the Chiefs landed former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid. Clark Hunt was aggressive from the start and was able to land one of the best coaches in the game, knowing he needed to get a proven coach. Reid, who was fired from the Eagles, was the perfect fit for a team on the mend.

Reid came into Kansas City on a five-year contract, one in which would allow him control over football decisions. The Scott Pioli experiment was immediately halted and in comes Reid’s personal choice of John Dorsey at general manager. Reid also had the top overall pick that year, which he and Dorsey used on left tackle Eric Fisher.

Reid seemed to turn the team around when in his first year, Kansas City made the playoffs, something they had not done since 2010, but also finished with an 11-5 record. That record was the single best turnaround in team history, and included a nine-game winning streak. Reid has shown he was the right decision for Hunt and the Chiefs.
