Fired after 14 years with the Philadelphia Eagles in his first head coaching position, Andy Reid will take over for Romeo Crennel in Kansas City. The Chiefs finished the 2012 season 2-14, their worst season in franchise history.

After 14 seasons, five NFC championship appearances and one loss in the Super...
