First topic message reminder :


"Falcons' Dirk Koetter will interview with Chiefs, Eagles and Browns for head coach job, per report

By Joel Thorman on Dec 31, 12:01p 62

The Kansas City Chiefs coaching search is underway and we have a name that the team will reportedly interview: Dirk Koetter, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator.

It was just a few hours ago that the Kansas City Chiefs fired head coach Romeo Crennel. Team owner Clark Hunt said he had not yet determined the fate of GM Scott Pioli but he did say that he, and not Pioli, would be leading the Chiefs coaching search.

We now have a name to attach to that search: Dirk Koetter, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator.

@foxsports.com has learned #Falcons OC Dirk Koetter set to interview this week 4 HC jobs with #Eagles, #Chiefs & #Browns. Story coming ASAP
— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) December 31, 2012

Koetter was the Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator from 2007-11. He ran the Falcons offense this season.

We'll do a little digging into Koetter to learn more but I REALLY LIKE that this is an offensive -minded candidate. The Chiefs have the No.1 pick coming up, so getting it right on the quarterback is the priority right now."

Didn't realize he sold a soccer team. I didn't even realize he owned one.

Hope he proves to us he does care.

Andy Reid reportedly close to becoming new Arizona Cardinals head coach

Despite the holiday and saying it would not go "lightning speed," the team is reportedly close to landing their Ken Whisenhunt replacement

Just one day after announcing the dismissal of head coach Ken Whisenhunt, it is being reported that the Arizona Cardinals are close to bringing in recently fired Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid to take over the Cardinals.

Local TV sports reporter Tim Ring tweeted it and then XTRA 910 reporter/broadcaster Mike Jurecki also said the same thing

I am reporting the Cardinals are very close to a deal with Andy Reid to become the team's next head coach.#AZCardinals #Eagles #NFL
— Tim Ring (@timring3TV) January 1, 2013

Hearing Cards are closing in on Andy Reid to become the new head coach of the Cardinals.
— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) January 1, 2013

When team president Michael Bidwill addressed the media on Monday about the decision to part ways with both Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves, he did reveal that Reid was a candidate for the job.

There has not been any report that he was interviewed.

Reid, if hired, will only have one offensive coach on staff -- tight ends coach Freddie Kitchens.

If this proves to be true, there will be two very important questions left to be answered -- who will be the team's GM and what will the fate of defensive coordinator Ray Horton be.

Pretty sure those rumors have been shot down. And he hasn't even interviewed there yet. Remember when "the deal is done" for Shannahan signing with KC?

Andy Reid interviewing with the Chiefs in Philadelphia, according to report

By Joel Thorman on Jan 2, 8:58a 516

The KC Chiefs coaching search now includes a third name -- Andy Reid, who was fired by the Eagles on Monday. Reid is set to interview in Arizona on Wednesday but before that the Chiefs will interview him in Philadelphia on Wednesday, according to a report.

We have some KC Chiefs coaching news. Some very big KC Chiefs coaching news. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Kansas City Chiefs will interview former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid.

More: All Chiefs coaching search updates and rumors

It was believed that Reid, who was fired by the Eagles on Monday, was nearing a deal with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday night. Reports since then have slowed that train down.

According to Mort, the Chiefs will interview Reid in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Reid will then travel to Arizona to interview with the Cardinals.

If he gets to Arizona...

The Chiefs president, Mark Donovan, comes from Philadelphia, which is notable. Donovan is one of the leaders in the Chiefs organization.

More: Timeout! The story of the 2012 Chiefs, in pictures

The only two reported coaching candidates for the Chiefs so far are from Atlanta -- Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and special teams coach Keith Armstrong. Those interviews supposedly took place in Atlanta this week.

Clark Hunt, not GM Scott Pioli, is running the interview process.

The next head coach will have a say in the future of Pioli. If it's Reid, it's hard to imagine a scenario where Pioli sticks around.

So ... thoughts on Andy Reid interviewing in Kansas City?

Reid would be a great hire but I dont think it would mean Pioli is gone. Still important to fire Pioli. I dont want Pioli negotiating contracts with players agents.

Rumors are that Pioli did sign extension, and Clark is negotiating buyout.

Andy Reid to the Chiefs? 3 questions about the future in Kansas City

By Joel Thorman on Jan 2, 12:44p 699

The latest KC Chiefs coaching search has us landing in Philly, where a contingent of Chiefs personnel is interviewing Andy Reid, who was fired by the Eagles on Monday. Jason from Bleeding Green Nation answers our questions on what the Reid era could look like in KC.

The Kansas City Chiefs coaching search started in Atlanta with Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, who has since re-upped with the Falcons. The next step in the search will take place in Philadelphia, where the Chiefs are meeting with Andy Reid, who was fired after 14 years on Monday.

So, how about Reid in Kansas City? I talked with Jason over at Bleeding Green Nation for the scoop on Reid, and what he might look like in red and gold.

More: Full coverage of Andy Reid's firing | Reid's decision making became 'scattered'
1. Do you think Andy Reid could be successful with another team?

"Sure, Andy Reid certainly lost his way here (more on that in question 3), but given his track record of success I can certainly see him doing well after a fresh start. Assuming he hasn't permanently lost the ability to evaluate talent or select coaches (at one time he was good at that) I think the fact that he won't be desperately title-chasing anymore will help. Hopefully he can get back to the core principles that led to his early success in Philadelphia."

2. The Chiefs have the No. 1 pick and need a new quarterback. How would you assess Reid's ability to not only choose the right quarterback, but also develop him?

"That's probably a more complicated question than it seems. As much as he always called a "QB guru," in reality Reid has only done what you're asking once. He picked Donovan McNabb in 1999 and developed him into a star QB. He hasn't done that again. Part of that is that he hasn't had to because the vast majority of his time here McNabb was set as the starter. However, in recent seasons he's taken guys like Kevin Kolb, Mike Kafka & Nick Foles. Obviously who knows what Foles will be, but his other picks have not developed into franchise QBs.

"Of course, they weren't No. 2 overall picks either. And that's really always been the big question with Reid/McNabb. Did Andy make McNabb or was it the other way around? If you look back at that 1999 draft, five QBs went in the first 12 picks and McNabb was easily the best of the bunch. The only other one that even had any kind of career was Daunte Culpepper. So did Andy just get lucky taking McNabb that year? Or if he took Akili Smith, would it have been Smith who made Pro Bowls and led the Eagles to four NFC title games? It's really hard to say.

"Beyond the draft picks, Andy has been successful with QBs in little spurts. We saw Jeff Garcia come in here and make a playoff run. Michael Vick's 2010 season. When McNabb got hurt in 2002, AJ Feeley was able to win 4 games to keep them in playoff contention. Kevin Kolb won a couple of games...

"The reality is though, he's only picked and developed one QB to any type of sustained success. He has, however, suckered three different teams into surrendering second round picks for former QBs of his that never did anything afterward..."

3. What were some of the downfalls of Reid in the last few years in Philly? Was he fired for any reason other than the fact he'd been there a long time?

"He was fired because he's been a failure at absolutely every level in these past couple of years. Obviously we can look at Reid's resume and see that overall he did a very good job in Philadelphia. He's experienced a lot of success and helped build this team into a real contender in the mid 2000s.


"That makes his performance over the past two seasons all the more shocking. He has had final say and presided over a run of disastrous drafts, something noted even by the owner when discussing his firing. He's abandoned his principles of building through the draft in favor of free agency quick faces and chasing big names. Again, this was something pointed out by owner Jeff Lurie as part of the season. He called Reid's decision making "scattered" in recent seasons and he's right. There's been no clear plan whatsoever.

"He's not only been unable to replace the assistant coaching drain that success in the NFL brings, the guys he has chosen have been huge negatives and highlighted his utter failure as a manager these past couple seasons.

"Take Juan Castillo for example. Castillo has been Reid's most loyal assistant for his entire tenure here and did a great job as an offensive line coach for well over a decade. Reid makes the decision to promote him to defensive coordinator last season. If that was not an odd enough move in the first place, he actually hired defensive line coach Jim Washburn prior to promoting Castillo. So now now Juan takes over a defense that is going to be totally dictated by Washburn's wide 9 schemes and has no choice but to try and work around it.

"Now that would be bad enough is Washburn wasn't also a complete and total douche who had no respect for Castillo and could care less about the rest of the defense. I'll excerpt a piece from a local reporter named Reuben Frank:

Washburn operated apart from Castillo, running his own little defensive line fiefdom and often either ignoring Castillo or derisively calling him "Juanita" in front of his players, the veteran defensive player said. He was condescending and confrontational and embarrassed Castillo numerous times in meetings and at practice.

Jason Babin was all about compiling sacks, never about winning, never about being part of a team, and it turns out Washburn was exactly the same. No coincidence they were dismissed less than a week apart.

"Reid allowed this to happen. I don't care if you're running a convenience store, a manager should not allow that to happen. What's worse, he fires Castillo 6 games into this season when the defense was actually playing decent. They took an absolute nosedive directly after and wouldn't even record an interception until the 2nd to last game of the year. It took him until the season was lost to finally fire Washburn and start to shed the me-first mercenaries like Jason Babin.

"And that's just one example. He's never been able to replace Jim Johnson on defense. He's never been able to replace John Harbaugh on special teams. Whether it's in the draft room, free agency or his own staff there has not been an area of this team that Reid has not failed at managing in the last few seasons.

"The question is why did he decline so sharply as a coach & manager? In the end, that's going to be up to whoever interviews him to get to the bottom of. There's no doubt that there was pressure on him to finally win and that had to play a part in what drive him to abandon his successful philosophies of the past. Obviously his family issues are well publicized.

"Being perfectly honest, I'm very conflicted about whether I think Reid can still be a good head coach. He once was, but he is most certainly not right now. Maybe a change of scenery and a reset is really what he needs."

What I highlighted in black is what I have seen. It's the reason I don't see Reid as an answer. He no doubt has gotten away from the things that made him successful.

Report: Chiefs, Andy Reid have met for over 9 hours; GM Scott Pioli involved

By Joel Thorman on Jan 2, 5:28p 1207

The KC Chiefs coaching search extended to Philly where a contingent of team personnel, including owner Clark Hunt, met with Andy Reid for over nine hours, according to the latest report.

The Chiefs visit with Andy Reid has been going on all day long, according to Howard Eskin:

Andy reid,lamonte has met w KC Chiefs for over 9 hours. Owner clark hunt, pres Mark donovan, GM scott pioli and 4 others. @profootballtalk
— Howard Eskin (@howardeskin) January 2, 2013

A few thoughts on this.

1. Nine hours. Seems like a long time, no? Really, though, we have no idea what these meetings are normally like. Nine hours could be standard. It could be especially long. I don't know. I don't want to draw conclusions from that.

More: Chiefs coaching rumors

2. Chiefs GM Scott Pioli is involved, according to the report. Pioli was said to have been involved in the Dirk Koetter interview in Atlanta as well. I don't know what to make of this but, if we are to believe Clark Hunt, there is a scenario where a new head coach is hired and Pioli stays. If that's the case, it makes sense he's involved in the process.

Also, as Danny Parkins said on 610 Sports today, Pioli being involved doesn't necessarily mean anything. It does not mean he is staying around. It doesn't mean he's going either.

3. Mark Donovan, the Chiefs president, came from Philly. So he probably has some familiarity with Reid.

4. I really hope this is real and we're not all just getting played by his agent.

Update: More confirmations...

Our guys in Philly did see Clark Hunt at the airport a short while ago. He says the interview has lasted 8 hours and is still going.

This is the 2nd time Pioli has made the trip with Hunt on a recruiting trip. Doesn't sound like a man on the way out. I think it would be kind of cool to get Reid and pair him with Pioli. Reid hasn't exactly been inspiring with the draft lately.

Andy Reid doesn't go to Arizona after Chiefs interview

By Joel Thorman on Jan 2, 10:06p 475

Fox 29's Howard Eskin was on the scene as a contingent from the KC Chiefs, including GM Scott Pioli, met with former Eagles coach Andy Reid on Wednesday.

The Andy Reid rumors appear to be some pretty serious rumors.

The Philly media is tracking the story as a contingent of seven Chiefs met with Reid on Wednesday, including Clark Hunt, GM Scott Pioli, president Mark Donovan and others.

This according to a report from Howard Eskin of Fox 29 in Philadelphia. View his video report here.

Reid was reportedly scheduled to visit the Cardinals later on Wednesday night.

According to the report, he did not make that trip tonight.

So ... yeah.

Eskin used the infamous word "close" but we've been through this before. I want to see this progress a little more before I start to believe this will happen. The next logical step is contract talk.

And, oh by the way, Reid's agent is also in the building. That doesn't necessarily mean anything but ... if you wanted to work on a contract, he'd be the one that needs to be there.

Eskin did say Reid would talk it over with his wife and he might still look at San Diego, so this thing isn't over with by any means.

Update: Another update on the meeting.

Just got a text from Andy Reid, said Chiefs interview went well, was very long. Cards interview might be pushed back to Friday now.
— Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) January 3, 2013

And it looks like Save Our Chiefs posted video of the report on YouTube. I transcribed what Howard Eskin said on the report.

"Former Eagles coach Andy Reid lost his job on Monday but he may be closer to another job after today. And it could be, it could be with Kansas City. I spoke with Andy Reid after his meeting of over eight hours, nearly nine hours. It was here in Philadelphia at the private airport Atlantic Aviation.

"At the meeting was the owner of the Chiefs, Clark Hunt, along with the GM Scott Pioli, and the president Mark Donovan along with four others from the front office. Reid was accompanied with his agent, Bob LaMonte. After the meeting, I was the only media person that spoke to Reid, and although he would not talk on camera, he did tell me he had no contract done -- eight hours and nothing done, or nine hours? -- but he does love the ownership, was very comfortable with all their people and he was scheduled to head to Arizona today but now he told he is not sure if he will go to Arizona. He wanted to talk to his wife. He also told me he may have a visit in San Diego."

Andy Reid has told the Kansas City Chiefs that he's a package deal with former Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported, citing a source with knowledge of Reid's pitch.

If Reid is hired and brings along Heckert as he hopes, it would almost certainly mean the end of current GM Scott Pioli's tenure with the Chiefs.

Reid and Heckert previously worked together with the Philadelphia Eagles.
