Andy Reid Hired as Kansas City Chiefs Coach

Former Philadelphia Eagles coach gets new gig in Kansas City.

Well that didn't take long.

Less than a week after being dismissed as coach of the Philadelpha Eagles, Andy Reid has landed his next gig as coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to numerous sports websites, Reid was flying to Kansas City to accept the job.

Reid's lawyers were ironing out details of the contract, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Kansas City Star was also reporting that the deal was done.

Reid was fired Monday by Birds owner Jeff Lurie following a 4-12 record and ending a 14-year tenure.

Reid suffered through a dismal season and also on a personal end this year. His son Garrett died of a heroin overdose during training camp.

Reid is the winningest coach in Philadelphia Eagles history, having led the team to six NFC East titles, four NFC Championship game appearances and one visit to the Super Bowl during his tenure.

His 140 victories are a franchise record and rank 22nd on the all-time NFL coaching list.
