Chiefs announce several members of coaching staff

Former Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid gestures during a news conference with Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt introducing Reid as the Chiefs new coach in Kansas City, Missouri Reuters

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.

    They should all be required to wear giant effin’ mustaches as well for the sake of continuity and mission alignment.

    Interesting that some of the bigger name coordinators did not follow him this time. Pat Shurmer, Childress, Morningweg or even Monte Kifflin, who it was reported Reid was interested in. Could it be that Reids coattails are not as long as they once were and coaches do not believe in him like they used too? Currently looks like a weak staff to me.

    Lol all you Eagles fans still hating on poor Andy. Could it be you are all just jealous that KC signed him after the fans and the media treated him so poorly in Phily? By the way does Phily have a head coach yet? Seems to me not to many applicants are beating down the door to coach in Phily.

    Reid’s already driving the chiefs into the ground.

    As a lifelong Eagles fan, I wish Andy all the best in KC. Although he’s no Belichick, doesn’t thrill media or fans with his public statements, and appears to have more than his share of clock-management issues, he is a very good coach, generally protects his players, and has always seemed like a decent guy. It’s a shame in my view that he didn’t bring a Lombardi trophy to Philly, but he & his teams always came up just short in the most critical moments (unlike Eli & Coughlin).

    I hope he gets his Lombardi trophy eventually, but hope we get one first.

    I believe Childress is on the staff, as a offensive consultant.

    I was really hoping they were going to get a big name for Statistical Analysis Coordinator. I’ve never heard of Mike Frazier.

  8. patssteelersorgiants says: Jan 11, 2013 5:59 PM

    Andy named his other son as an assistant?! Didn’t this guy learn anything from Garrett dying and the whole steroids in the duffle bag thing? KC has made a serious mistake hiring Reid.

    Doug Peterson is an awful choice. He was a stpo gap QB at most and wasnt anything special as the QB Coach in Philly.

  10. profootballwalk says: Jan 11, 2013 6:12 PM

    Because his Philly staff did such a great job last year. The team’s record will be better next year by the dead cat bounce method. Does anyone see Reid building a Super Bowl champ in the next five years?

    “All of the coaches except for Sutton and Bieniemy were on Reid’s staff with the Eagles last year, except for Britt Reid.”

    And then Reid said “if I had some bread I’d make y’all ham sandwiches, if I had some ham.”

    There, now your little story is complete.

    Dont you haters look at all the thumbs down before you write, if not you should, lol. the guy won 130 games in 14 yrs, the eagles were the Chiefs when he took over. You were worse then the expansion Brownies, he made you relevant and now you make comments on here that make you sound like a fool. The Chiefs may not win it all but he is building a foundation for a franchise with rich history and great fans. Andy we are happy to have you and everything you bring to the franchise. Hey Eagles fans I think Romeo is available, oh wait they are going to hire B. Kelly the guy that burned multiple teams and got beat down in front of everyone mon night. Cheifs will see you at the link next yr, cant wait…Go Chiefs

    Some of you guys know nothing. Except for Culley, Brasher, and Melvin, the rest of his staff is made up of young coaches–just like it was when he was hired in Philly. Most of his coaches in Philly, with the exception of Dowhower, Johnson, Brasher and Culley all were very young assistants at the lower level, players who just retired, or college coaches. Jim Johnson was a LBs coach with the Colts and wasn’t even Reid’s first choice–Marvin Lewis was. Childress was OC at Wisconsin; Rod Dowhower had been an OC with the Rams and the Cards; he’s trying to build a young staff of teachers as he did in Philly.

    As for the Eagles’ HC search, I don’t blame them for taking their time–Lurie is not a guy who wants to throw away money–he wants to find the right guy who can coach for 10 years at least–not another Ray Rhodes type. You know, when you have to fire a coach, you have to pay his salary for his years remaining–unless he gets hired by someone else.

    And for those that bash Roseman, I find that ineteresting, seeing as no one really knows anything about him.

    I love Andy Reid

    Will the Chiefs training camp be a steroid emporium like the Eagles was? Wait, we can’t talk about that can we PFT?

    What, no Chilly?!

    *did you really say that?

  19. brenenostler says: Jan 11, 2013 9:29 PM

    No Brad Childress or Juan Castillo?

    “These are high-character coaches,”

    Britt may be high and he likely is a chartacter but his history hardly speaks of high-character

    OMG! are you really bragging about getting Andy Ried as your coach. You do realize he career winning percentage vs teams with winning record is under .400. you do realize his teams were favorite to win 4 out of 5 championships with 3 of them being at home and only won 1. he is also 2-14 life time vs AFC play off teams. And his draft picks over the years have been awful so can’t wait to see how he screws this up

  23. raidernation210 says: Jan 12, 2013 7:17 AM

    did Britt Reid pass his drug test?

  24. oldbyrd says: Jan 12, 2013 9:29 AM

    Neli get educated. The Eagles job is the most respected of all. Brit Reid, Quality Control? Is this a joke? Reid’s player and coaching choices speak for themselves, Our last 1st round choice is a perfect example of failure. Word is, he will be traded to a Fire Department. How about McDougle DE? Allen, the kid from Temple a safety. These are examples of why we went 4 and 12 not to mention the coaches.

  25. macjacmccoy says: Jan 12, 2013 1:28 PM

    Eaglesbobby…. umm dont know where you get your facts from but Jim Johnson was a hold over when Andy Reid got to Philly. He was an Eagle before Reid was.

  26. macjacmccoy says: Jan 12, 2013 1:40 PM

    oldbyrd … jeez you must be getting your info from the same place as EaglesBobby… Eagles last 1st rounder was Fletcher Cox …. Allen isnt from temple he’s from Florida …. Jarrett was from Temple …. McDougle was drafted almost a decade ago it had no effect on this season….

    Please stop talking you 2 are why Eagles fans are looked at like ignorant buffoons . If you cant help but blurt out erroneous information at least change you screen names so no one knows your Eagles fan.
