Source: Reid close to becoming Chiefs’ coach

  • January 3, 2013

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Andy Reid is nearing a deal to replace Romeo Crennel as coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Reid has no plans to interview for other jobs, according to the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Thursday because they were not authorized to discuss the negotiations.

The Philadelphia Eagles fired Reid on Monday, the same day the Chiefs parted ways with Crennel. Several members of the Chiefs met with Reid, who has also been linked to openings in Arizona and San Diego, for close to nine hours Wednesday.

Reid was fired after 14 seasons, six division titles and a Super Bowl appearance.
