The Chiefs announced Monday that Matt Nagy will be the team’s new offensive coordinator and that Brad Childress will be the team’s assistant head coach.

Nagy was announced as co-coordinator with Childress before the 2016 season. Prior to that he spent two seasons as the team’s quarterbacks coach.

Childress has 18 years of NFL experience and was the head coach of the Vikings for five years. He’s spent the last three years working under Chiefs coach Andy Reid, as he previously did in Philadelphia.

“With Coach [David] Culley’s departure to Buffalo, it opened up the position of assistant head coach,” Reid said in a statement. “Moving Coach Childress into that job was a natural fit. He has been in the National Football League for nearly two decades, he’s been a head coach, and knows the various demands on and off the field.

“Coach Nagy did a tremendous job last year and grew in his role as the season progressed. He’s a talented coach that I believe will continue to evolve as his responsibilities increase. I’m confident these changes will be beneficial to our coaching staff and our team.”

    They can compare notes on how Brett Favre was the pinnacle of both their careers.

    Chilly’s been with the Chiefs since 2013, so it’s been 4 years, not 3 years.

    I don’t know what to laugh at more, the fact that Alice is still the QB so it won’t matter who the OC is, or the fact that Childress has joined the Chiefs.

    I don’t know what to laugh at more, the fact that you still dis Alex or the fact that he is 9-1 against the Raiders.

    This tool has a silent crush on Alex Smith. He says he’s a Raiders fan and Alex is 9-1 with 5 in a row against his team.

    Childress will live in NFL infamy for 12 men in the huddle with a berth in the Superbowl right in front of him. Of course, BrINT Favre could have easily ran for the first down on the very next play instead of……..wait for it…….throwing the INT but they were in FG range prior to the 12 men in the huddle penalty.

    In all fairness, I’m not sure it was Childress or just the legacy of the Vikings to find a way to choke in that spot. Maybe both, but it sure does bring a tear to my eye every time I think of it.

    Andy Reid went to the superbowl the with Chilly as his OC. I can see good things happening again with him as assistant head coach.

    Just don’t give him another HC job. The Randy Moss debacle still makes no darn sense.

    You guys will be fine with these choices. Hey, make the WC game and everybody is really happy in KC. Playoff wins? Who cares. Squaw Nation doesnt!
