Scott Pioli has been fired and Andy Reid is now officially the head man for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs and Andy Reid have agreed to a contract today, per ESPN. Scratch that name off of your wish list.

We will have to deal with Reid twice a year in the division. Will it be the Andy Reid of the last couple of seasons that couldn’t bring the “Dream Team” to the playoffs or will it be the head coach that won a ton of games with Donovan McNabb and a high powered offense. I wonder if this hiring could keep Dwayne Bowe around in KC.

I know there are a lot of people that didn’t like the idea of adding Reid as our head coach, but the Chiefs just got better. He is an upgrade over Romeo Crennel and he will find a quarterback to run that team.

    It’s going to be tough for the Chargers to get a good pick at head coach. By the time they find a General Manager, get him signed and then look for a coach, the good coaches will be signed with other teams. I would have fired AJ last year and then Turner this year. The history of the Chargers is doing things the hard way.

      you took the words right out of my mouth. i warned people when manning joined the broncos, the chargers would need more than 10 wins to get into the playoffs. if Andy can sort out the QB situation, the bolts are in for another long season.
