The Chiefs announced some changes to their coaching staff.

The changes include Greg Lewis moving from receivers coach to running backs coach. Lewis, who played receiver for eight NFL seasons, has never coached running backs.

He spent the past four seasons as the Chiefs’ receivers coach after coaching the Eagles’ receivers for a season.

The Chiefs promoted Joe Bleymaier to receivers coach.

Ken Flajole, the defensive coordinator of the Rams from 2009-11, will coach the outside linebackers this season. He replaces Britt Reid, who no longer is employed by the team after a car he was driving hit a disabled car, seriously injuring a 5-year-old passenger during the week of Super Bowl LV.

The Chiefs also named David Girardi as the passing game analyst/assistant quarterbacks coach, Connor Embree as an offensive quality control coach, Terry Bradden Jr. as assistant defensive line coach, Donald D’Alesio as a defensive assistant and Tyler Judkins as an assistant strength and conditioning coach.

  1. If he’s the RB’s coach, what is Bieniemy doing?


    He is the Brains of the operations, Andy is to Old for this, past His Prime…..

  2. Bienemy is the offensive coordinator. Deland McCullough was the running backs coach until leaving for Indiana as Associate Head Coach and running backs coach. My concern is, what does Greg Lewis know about running backs and running the football?

  3. Greg Lewis coaching the running backs? That reminds me of one of Reid’s all time coaching moves moving Juan Castillo to DC. I’ll never forget Asante Samuel’s face when the sports caster broke the news to him…lol.

  4. Does the Chiefs even have a rushing attack? They discovered it early in the second half in the Super Bowl but quickly abandoned it again. Without a running attack, pass rushers will pin their ears back and go after Mahomes.

  5. So they are not happy with the RB contribution in the passing game. Bet we see a lot more KC RB designed pass plays this season.

  6. At least Big Red didn’t make him D line coach- he learned his lesson from the Philly debacle

    Hopefully he knows more about RBs than Juan Castillo knew about defense!

  8. Reid’s Philly began to spiral after his son’s overdose followed by questionable FA acquisitions tenure and then naming Castillo as DC. I will say Greg Lewis a positive impact on Eagles WR. It’s too bad he didn’t stay. Those guys went from dropping too many balls to catching everything!
