Former Philadelphia Eagles' head coach Andy Reid is reportedly close to a deal that will make him the new head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. ESPN NFL analysts Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson report that the biggest hurdles in making a new contract have been passed:

Reid was supposedly close to a deal to coach the Arizona Cardinals but that apparently fell through. Reid had also been scheduled to interview for the coaching vacancy for the San Diego Chargers.

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.
