Chiefs name Brad Childress, Matt Nagy as co-offensive coordinators
The Kansas City Chiefs named Brad Childress and Matt Nagy as co-offensive coordinators. Childress was the spread game analyst-special projects coach. He's a former Minnesota Vikings coach who was offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. Nagy was the quarterbacks coach. They take over for new Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson. Andy Reid will call the plays. “We went through our process of finding an offensive coordinator and determined having coach Childress and coach Nagy serve as co-coordinators would benefit our football team the most,” Reid said. “They both have a great feel for our system. Brad lends a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge to our offense. Matt has done a nice job tutoring the quarterbacks the last three years and will continue to work with the QBs, but will also take the next step in his professional growth and coordinate the offense with Brad. His feel for the game and well thought out ideas each week have impressed me. As we move forward, I’m excited to see how we work to take the Chiefs offense to an even higher level.” Follow me on Twitter; @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
