Ex-Chiefs GM Scott Pioli has joined the cast of NBC's Football Night in America.
Pioli says he was contacted by a "number of different T.V. networks and NFL teams" after being fired in January, but has decided to go the T.V. route. He was a surprisingly entertaining and informative listen during the run-up to the draft, appearing nothing like the paranoid man he was accused of being in Kansas City. It's a good get for the "Peacock Network" and football fans alike. Mon, Jun 17, 2013 08:21:00 AM

Chiefs hired Brad Childress as a senior offensive assistant.

Childress' exact role is labeled as spread game analyst/special projects. It's an unfamiliar title, but it's expected Childress will help coach Andy Reid find a medium between the West Coast and the spread that Alex Smith ran in college.

Coach Andy Reid confirmed he will call the offensive plays in 2013.

Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson will learn at the foot of Reid. Based on a 14-year history in Philadelphia, we can expect a pass-happy West Coast offense that gets players in space and uses running backs extensively in the passing game. Reid also has a history of using one back as a three-down workhorse, which is obviously more good news for the 2013 outlook of Jamaal Charles. Duce Staley, Brian Westbrook and LeSean McCoy became fantasy stars under Reid.

Ex-Jets OC Tony Sparano will reportedly interview for the Chiefs offensive line coach position.

Before his four-year stint as Dolphins coach and failed one-year gig running the Jets offense, Sparano was a highly regarded offensive line coach with the Cowboys from 2003-2007. If he gets the Chiefs job, it will likely come with the assistant head coach title.

Chiefs hired John Dorsey as general manager.

For the third straight offseason, the Packers are losing GM Ted Thompson's right-hand man after Reggie McKenzie took the Raiders' GM job in 2012 and John Schneider became Seattle's GM in 2011. Dorsey will enter a situation more like Schneider's, beginning as second fiddle to powerful coach Andy Reid with a role likely to increase as the years go on. Dorsey has spent 22 years in player personnel. He was Green Bay's Director of Football Operations in 2012.

Chiefs hired former Eagles QBs coach Doug Pederson as offensive coordinator.

"Doug has been around the game a long time, and he has great vision," coach Andy Reid said. Pederson, 45, coached the Eagles' quarterbacks from 2011-2012, replacing Pat Shurmur in the role, and has been in coaching since the end of a 12-year pro career, primarily as a backup quarterback. Reid figures to call plays initially in Kansas City, but those duties could fall on Pederson if he continues his upward climb in the coaching ranks.

The Chiefs are expected to hire Doug Pederson as their offensive coordinator.

Pederson was a backup with the Packers, Eagles and Browns during his playing days, which ended in 2004. He signed on as a quality control coach with Andy Reid and the Eagles in 2009 and served as the quarterbacks coach in each of the last two years. He'll have plenty of support in his first stint as a coordinator -- Brad Childress is expected to sign on as an assistant and Reid himself is a good bet to be calling the plays.

The Chiefs are not considering Brad Childress for offensive coordinator, but are expected to hire him as an offensive assistant.

Cleveland's offensive coordinator last season, Childress spent seven years as an Andy Reid assistant in Philadelphia, including three as coordinator. "Chilly" will likely be one of many former Reid confidants brought on in Kansas City.

Chiefs are interviewing Packers director of football operations John Dorsey for their general manager vacancy.

Dorsey has been considered the favorite for the job since Reid landed in Kansas City, though ex-Browns GM Tom Heckert could also join the front office. Although Dorsey will likely have "final say" over football decisions written into his contract to wrest him from Green Bay, Reid will remain the true head honcho.

According to the Denver Post, new Chiefs coach Andy Reid is hoping to make Brad Childress his offensive coordinator in Kansas City.

Childress was Reid's offensive coordinator from 2003-2005 in Philadelphia, and the Eagles made the NFC Championship Game all three years. They also share an agent in Bob LaMonte. The Denver Post's report runs contrary to one from CSN Philly, which stated late Friday that Reid wanted Doug Pederson as his OC.

Reuben Frank of CSN Philly is hearing that there's a "good chance" Doug Pederson will be the Chiefs' offensive coordinator.

Pederson played quarterback for new Chiefs coach Andy Reid early in Reid's tenure as Eagles head coach. It's a bit surprising that Reid would pursue him rather than Pat Shurmur. Per Frank, there's also a "good chance" that former Eagles quality control coach Matt Nagy will coach quarterbacks in Kansas City.

NFL Network's Albert Breer confirms Packers director of football operations John Dorsey is the "clear-cut favorite" to be Kansas City's next GM.

Ex-Browns GM Tom Heckert is "second on the list," although he will likely end up with the Chiefs in a lesser personnel-man role. Dorsey is Andy Reid's handpicked GM, similar to how the Seahawks hired Pete Carroll and John Schneider. Like Dorsey, Schneider was a right-hand man of Ted Thompson in Green Bay.
Fri, Jan 4, 2013 08:20:00 PM

Updating previous items, new Chiefs coach Andy Reid is reportedly telling people that he plans to bring both former Browns GM Tom Heckert and Packers director of football operations John Dorsey with him to Kansas City.

Reid will have final say over personnel decisions, but smartly plans to surround himself with skilled evaluators. Heckert's draft-pick resume in both Cleveland and Philadelphia impresses on paper, and Dorsey has learned from the best in Green Bay, working under GM Ted Thompson. We also expect Reid's coaching staff to be star-studded when it's announced. It's definitely going to have Juan Castillo coaching the offensive line, and may include Pat Shurmur.

Chiefs agreed to terms with Andy Reid on a five-year contract that makes him their head coach with personnel responsibilities yet to be clarified.

It's been a busy Friday for Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, who also relieved GM Scott Pioli of his duties this morning. Although early speculation had ex-Browns GM Tom Heckert joining Reid in Kansas City, he's now expected to bring in Packers director of operations John Dorsey to run scouting and the draft. Reid will likely maintain personnel control in a manner similar to Bill Belichick, Mike Shanahan, Pete Carroll, and Jeff Fisher. Ex-Eagles DC Juan Castillo is expected to be hired as OL coach while Pat Shurmur and Brad Childress are candidates for offensive coordinator. The Chiefs complied with the NFL's Rooney Rule by interviewing Falcons ST coach Keith Armstrong.

The Chiefs and Andy Reid reportedly met past midnight Thursday and into Friday morning, but no agreement has been reached yet.

"They made a lot of progress, but it's not done," a source tells CSN Philly. One hangup is likely "final say," which current GM Scott Pioli has written into his contract. That language will be changed if Pioli remains with the Chiefs. If Reid wants to bring along Packers director of operations John Dorsey as the next GM, final say will technically have to be included to get him out of his contract with Green Bay.
