PHILADELPHIA — Scott Pioli is out. Andy Reid is in, according to NFL.com and ESPN.go.com. After two-plus days of negotiations, the Kansas City Chiefs have named Andy Reid as its new head coach and have parted ways with Scott Pioli.
Reid, hailed as one of the best coaches in Philadelphia Eagles’ history, has a long resume of success. One hundred and thirty regular-season wins. Ten playoff victories. Six NFC East titles. Five NFC Championship games. One Super Bowl appearance — all according to his biography on Pro-Football-Reference.com.
However, after his 14-year stint in Philly, many won’t let the veteran coach live down his failure to win a Super Bowl. But that wasn’t reason enough for the Chiefs to shy away from hiring him. The Chiefs went 2-14 in the 2012 season and tied for last in overall league standings with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The San Diego Chargers and the Arizona Cardinals also expressed an interest in Reid. The Cardinals have since moved on to talks with former Chiefs coach Todd Haley.
