Chiefs mum on Reid status

AP

If the Chiefs are indeed close to hiring coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs currently are saying nothing.

Reached for comment regarding reports that Reid will soon be hired as coach of Chiefs, the Chiefs had no comment.

Reid reportedly has scrapped plans to interview in San Diego and Arizona.  The good news, then, is that we finally have an answer as to whether Reid will interview with the Cardinals on Wednesday or on Thursday.

Given Tuesday night’s “Reid is 95-percent certain to be the next coach of the Cardinals” fiasco , we won’t believe Reid is the next coach of the Chiefs until the Chiefs announce it.  Actually, in this current hiring cycle, we’re not inclined to believe anything until it actually happens.

  1. When they said he was 95% certain to be the Cards head coach, he hadn’t even interviewed yet. He spent 9 hours talking to the Chiefs yesterday, and apparently the talks have spilled into today.

    Nothing is official yet, but this is a little more believable than the Cardinals report.

  2. Stop. The. Madness.

    Please wait until you have something definitive to report before you run another “Reid to KC” story. Thanks so much.

  3. Call me crazy. But with Reid being hired in KC just opened the door for Holmgren. Ron Wolf is hiring the coach in San Diego. This is same guy who hired him in Green Bay. Holmgren lives in AZ so I am sure the Cards take a look.

  4. Seems like this one is a done deal.

    Good Luck to Coach Reid. Despite the last couple of years, he provided many years of consistent success!

  5. Clark needs time to take out the trash so there is room for Tom Heckert. Announcment in 5…4….3….2….

  6. There real question is does this mean Michael Vick will be the next quarterback for the Chiefs?

  7. This one doesn’t seem to make much sense to me…

    Reid is a 60+% pass oriented coach.

    Why go to a team (KC) with no WR’s & no QB with the 1st overall pick in a QB light draft?

    Versus going to a team (ARI) that has one of the best WR’s in the game, a solid D, and a QB away from being a contender?

  8. You are the “fiasco” wait until it is done. The world will not stop. He is not the second coming, he is better than average but never won the whole thing.

  9. It doesn’t matter if Reid goes to the Cards, Chiefs, or Bolts. They all have road games against the Eagles this coming season.

    Would love to see Reid get his revenge.

  10. I’m surprised there hasn’t been a comparative roster analysis done here between the Chiefs and Cards. Both teams have some talent but in the end it’s all about the quarterback. Looks like both teams need a new one and KC has the edge via the draft with a higher first round pick.

  11. The attraction is lost on me.

    Reid just spent the past 14 years not winning a Super Bowl where he was.

    If I’m the Chiefs and Clark Hunt and he’s going to change the structure of his organization the way he plans, I would hire a first time coach whether it’s a coordinator or a college coach and start from square one.

  12. Call me crazy. But if Holmgren HC and Heckert GM in SD. Betcha Pat Shurmur is OC. Call them the Browns of the left coast. Thats a perfect place for their West Coast offense.

    Revenge for what? For them paying him millions of dollars a year for making decisions like naming Juan Castillo defensive coordinator, hiring Jim Washburn to implement the disasterous Wide-9, for abandoning the running game early each game and having Mike Vick sling it up 40 or even 50 or more times a game, and for getting Vick killed with the play calling? I could go on and on. I knew the media would forget all of Reid’s shortcomings by next season, and the Eagles’ haters would never let the facts get in their way, but I cannot believe the season ended 4 days ago and people are acting like Reid’s last few years never happened.

  14. Next season, the Eagles play all 3 teams whose HC job Reid has been linked to: Arizona, San Diego, and KC. This will be very interesting…

  15. @briang123,

    Take away the last couple seasons (Vick era if you will) and look at his whole body of work.

    — 5 NFC title appearances with 1 SB appearance
    — 9 of those 14 years he won 10+ games
    — Got Teams to trade for Kevin Kolb, A.J. Feeley, and Donovan McNabb

    How many current HC have that kind of resume?

  16. One SB appearance in 14 years is not great coaching considering the talent many of his teams had. The Vick Era is the definition of Reid’s coaching problems. Jim Johnson was the reason the Eagles had success and when he died, the success died too.

    Unless Reid is on ego reducing medication, he is going to take the same problems with him wherever he goes.

  17. Why go to a no win situation like Kansas City?? Both San Diego and Arizona are better situations…5 probowlers that can only eck out 2 wins…that’s not close….that’s downright pitiful.

  18. @silverhornet…there is no quarterback in this year’s draft….atleast not one talented enough to turn KC around.

    He would be stuck with the Bidwells, Kolb and a bad O-line in a tougher division than the AFC West.

    I disagree. Under Reid the Eagles were perennial SB contenders for much of his tenure there. Heck, some “experts” thought they would reach the SB this season and last. I understand the pressure he got from coaching in Philly — BTW, win something first — But his resume speaks for itelf.

    Yea, JJ’s death had a ton to do with the lack of Eagles success. But so did losing Brian Dawkins. They still haven’t found an adequate replacement for him.

    And, if he does go to KC, he already has the talent on defense, so he won’t have to worry about that! He’s won games with Kolb, Feeley, Jeff Garcia, even Koy Detmer! He could do wonders with whoever the next QB is.

  21. Am I the only that thinks it’s funny that his resume is bashed yet Cowher is held up like he’s Noll,Landry or Walsh he’s basically got the same resume with the added 1 win of course but in my mind he lost that one too didn’t he Bill Leavey wink wink…….Both are overrated

  22. Yeah….this makes sense. Because the worst team in the league is your best chance to win? Probably not, but more likely the worst team in the league is your best chance to make more money, and to make more personnel decisions and you can pick and chose the players you want…like madden. You know…because that worked last time.
