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.
