NFL notebook: Chiefs hire former Eagles coach Reid

Associated Press Andy Reid pulled up to Arrowhead Stadium in a black SUV on Friday, stepped out of it wearing a dark suit and red tie, and walked briskly toward the doors of the Kansas City Chiefs’ home. All that was left was to make his hiring official. The longtime Eagles coach has agreed to a five-year deal to become coach of the Chiefs, two people familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the terms of the contract. The people also said that Reid has already begun assembling a staff. 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. Reid inherits a team that went 2-14, matching the worst record in franchise history. But he’ll also have the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, and with five players voted to the Pro Bowl this season, Kansas City has building blocks in place to make a quick turnaround.
