New Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has found his
offensive coordinator, as the team has hired his former quarterbacks coach Doug
Pederson to fill the position, according to Adam Caplan of XM-Radio.
As others have noted, Eagles QB Doug Pederson has joined the Chiefs. He's their OC, source confirmed.

Pederson has gone full-circle with Reid. He started out as
his quarterback with the Eagles in 1999, recently became his quarterbacks coach
and will now be the first offensive coordinator under the new Chiefs’ regime.
This will be Pederson’s first offensive coordinator job. The
hire indicates that Reid will continue to run the same style of West Coast
offense that he ran during his time with the Eagles.
With an offensive coordinator reportedly in place, it
remains to be determined who Reid will bring on to run his defense.
