Not too long ago, Brad Childress and Andy Reid worked together as coaches of the Philadelphia Eagles and even helped the team reach four-straight NFC Championship games. Now, it appears there’s a chance the two coaches could reunite once again as members of the Kansas City Chiefs.
NFL rumors are beginning to swirl of a possible reunion with Childress joining Reid’s staff for a specific role on the offense. Childress spent four years as the quarterbacks coach before taking over the duties at offensive coordinator as a member of the Eagles from 1999-2005 before eventually taking over the head coaching job with the Minnesota Vikings in 2006.
While things may not have worked out in Minnesota, Childress has proven to be very effective as an offensive coordinator throughout his career–despite what happened last year with the Cleveland Browns. Some of Childress’ best years in the NFL came during his tenure with the Eagles under Reid–so the Chiefs would certainly be excited if the duo were able to help the team get to that level again in 2013.
Kansas City has plenty of questions to answer on offense, but there is certainly enough talent for Reid to work with in his first year as head coach to quickly turn things around. From the Chiefs’ perspective, let’s hope these rumors about Childress end up being true so they can bounce back from their embarrassing two-win season that took place in 2012 as they finished last in the AFC West.
