Andy Reid has the start to a coaching staff in place with the Chiefs.
The team has announced the names of some of the men who will assist Reid in 2013. As previously reported, Doug Pederson will come over from Philadelphia to be the offensive coordinator while Bob Sutton will leave the Jets to run the defense. The running backs coach will be Eric Bieniemy, whose hiring has also been previously reported.
The rest of the staff is made up of Tommy Brasher (Defensive Line), Travis Crittenden (Assistant Strength and Conditioning), David Culley (Assistant Head Coach/Wide Receivers), Mike Frazier (Statistical Analysis Coordinator), Corey Matthaei (Quality Control), Tom Melvin (Tight Ends), Matt Nagy (Quarterbacks), Britt Reid (Quality Control) and Barry Rubin (Head Strength and Conditioning).
“I’m pleased we were able to get all of these coaches on board,” Reid said in a statement from the team. “I have relationships with each of them, and I know their past experiences, work ethics and coaching styles. These are high-character coaches, and each one brings something different to the table for us.”
All of the coaches except for Sutton, Bieniemy and Britt Reid were on staff with the Eagles last year. Britt Reid’s relationship with the head coach is probably apparent, but, to be on the safe side, we’ll point out that he’s Andy Reid’s son.
