Reid Takes Chiefs Job [VIDEO]

Andy Reid pulled up to Arrowhead Stadium in a black SUV, stepped out of it wearing a dark suit and red tie, and walked briskly toward the doors of the Kansas City Chiefs’ home.

It’s his new home, as it turned out.

The longtime Eagles coach signed a five-year deal, two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the terms of the contract.

The Chiefs have scheduled an introductory news conference for Monday.

Reid’s agreement was finalized shortly after the Chiefs announced they had parted ways with general manager Scott Pioli  after four tumultuous seasons in Kansas City.

It’s expected that Reid will pursue longtime Packers personnel man John Dorsey or former Browns GM Tom Heckert — or perhaps both of them — to work with him in the front office.
