When the Philadelphia Eagles fired head coach Andy Reid, many people thought that Reid should take a break from coaching. Andy Reid did not feel that way and neither did the Kansas City Chiefs. After “Black Monday” the day right after the regular season ends is known for seeing head coaches and upper management get the pink slip. Reid along with many other coaches and GM’s were let go from their respective teams. Saying Andy Reid has been through a lot this year is an understatement. During training camp Reid saw his son, Garrett pass away and that in itself is more than one person can deal with especially in a high demanding job of coaching in the NFL. The Eagles were dealing with injuries which made for a long season and they ended the year with the New York Giants beating them up 42-7. That last game summed up their disappointing 4-12 season. So now Reid is going to Kansas City where they have had their own tragedy with the Javon Belcher murder/suicide incident. Both Reid and the Chiefs will be looking for a brighter 2013 season. Reid got what he was looking for in a coaching position with full personnel control as the Chiefs said goodbye to general manager, Scott Pioli. With Pioli gone Reid will be able to create his own staff and call all the shots. With all the open coaching slots, this must have made the Chiefs head coach position look much more attractive than other coaching jobs. Also, once Peyton Manning retires from the Denver Broncos, the AFC West will be a winnable division. Just as Reid recently had issues with the Eagles quarterback position, it will be a daunting task to find a legitimate starter for the Chiefs. Andy has a regular season head coaching record of 130-93-1 and a postseason record of 10-9. He won the NFC Championship in 2004, but lost to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX. Even if Andy Reid bring the same type of success to Kansas City it would be welcomed since the last time the Chiefs won a playoff game was in 1993.
