In addition to possibly becoming the Chiefs' coach, Reid would be attempting to hire former Cleveland Browns' head coach Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Brad Childress to his staff with the Chiefs, according to Mary Kay Cabot.
In his tenure with the Eagles, Reid went 130-93-1 in 14 seasons. He helped coach the Eagles to the playoffs nine times, reaching the NFC Championship game on five occasions. He also coached the Eagles to Super Bowl XXXIX where they lost to the New England Patriots.
