Chiefs to interview in-house Brett Veach for G.M. job

The Chiefs have been turned down at least once, but they have one known candidate for their vacant General Manager job.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, they’ll interview internal candidate Brett Veach to replace fired G.M. John Dorsey.

Veach has background with coach Andy Reid, which can’t hurt since there’s at least the perception that Reid emerges from the recent upheaval with more power. Their structure has been to have a coach and a G.M. who each report to owner Clark Hunt.

Veach’s name came up in Buffalo, primarily because LeSean McCoy was pumping his candidacy.

But having him around could help the Chiefs navigate what has been a tumultuous time for a team with a good roster and what had been perceived as some stability, at least until this offseason.

Minnesota’s George Paton has turned down a chance to interview, and ESPN’s Louis Riddick disputed reports he was on the list.

  1. “We’re looking for someone who will go all in with the organization’s plans.”
    “Yes.”
    “And also agree with Coach Reid’s vision.”
    “Yes.”
    “…you don’t have to say yes to everything.”
    “Yes.”
    “My god he’s perfect.”

  2. They really have to stay inside because nobody that’s any good is going to take the job from outside.

    Not with the HC controlling personnel.

  3. Same thing that happened with Reid in Philly. He has disagreements with the other guy in the FO, that guy was removed and replaced with an internal “yes” man.

    No so coincidentally, that was basically the same time the Eagles went from a perennial contender, to a team struggling to make the playoffs, to a 4 win team

  4. Sounds like they are just looking for Reid’s lackey. Reid is a good coach, but not a good GM. This at least explains why they reached with Patrick Mahomes.
