Reports: Doug Pederson likely to join Andy Reid in K.C.

There have been reports of one of Andy Reid’s former quarterbacks coaches with the Eagles, Brad Childress, joining Reid in Kansas City with the Chiefs.

If that happens, it doesn’t look like Childress will be the team’s offensive coordinator because multiple reports indicate that another one of Reid’s quarterbacks coaches will be getting that job. Doug Pederson filled the role with the Eagles for the last two seasons and he’s reportedly set to move up to the coordinator slot for the Chiefs.

Pederson was also Reid’s first starting quarterback in Philadelphia as he served as a caretaker for the position until Donovan McNabb was deemed ready to take over during his rookie season. Pederson also started eight games in Cleveland the next year, but spent most of his career as a backup to Brett Favre in Green Bay. He joined the Eagles staff in 2009 as a quality control coach.

If Pederson is the team’s offensive coordinator, he’ll join Reid in the hunt for a quarterback. During his Wednesday appearance on PFT Live, Reid talked a lot about how the team will go about finding that guy. If that process doesn’t work out for them, perhaps he’ll turn to Pederson to hold things down again.

    Reid started his tenure in Philly by taking a QB in the first round over the strenuous objections of just everybody, and I am sure that’s what he will do in KC.

    Geno Smith got very lucky when Reid got the KC job.

    Dough Pederson as O coordinator. Man I don’t miss these head scratching moves with Andy.

    Hopefully for Chiefs fans, Pederson will work the QBs to protect the football, you know, like he did with Mike Vick recently.

    Who is going to talk who out of reaching for a QB in the draft? Glennon and Smith just aren’t top picks, better off going with the DE or LT.

    Reid will make this team competitive but his biggest obstacle is the qb

    Is this what he meant by, “the next Len Dawson?”

    Best darn clipboard holder ever in Green Bay.

    Pederson was the QB coach in Philadelphia. He wasn’t the Offensive Coordinator!

    What year did he join the Eagles staff? The article was a little unclear on that point.

    Doug Pederson would be half the offensive coordinator that Andy Reid would be…and I mean that literally- Andy Reid is enormous.

    Well there’s one job Juan won’t be getting…

    What about Marty?

    One of Doug Pederson’s most notable statistics as a Packer was most times caught on camera in background behind Favre picking his nose.

    True story.

    Doesn’t matter, Andy runs the offense. Pederson fits the bill for an Andy Reid OC – just a yes man. KC should be more worried about who runs the defense.

    Wasn’t Pat Shurmer a quarterbacks coach for the Eagles under Reid?

  18. phanfromnephilly says: Jan 10, 2013 2:54 PM

    I meant Pat Shurmur

  19. skoodsports says: Jan 10, 2013 3:05 PM

    When Shurmur left, Pederson took that job.

    Andy should make him defensive coordinator!

    After all, he basically said no one would understand blitzes and blocking assignments better than an offensive line coach in choosing Castillo as the defensive coordinator.

    Same logic, right?
