KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt and the Kansas City Chiefs formally introduced Andy Reid as the 13th head coach in club history on Monday.
“We are thrilled to welcome Andy to the Chiefs family,” Hunt said. “Throughout his career, Andy has established himself as one of the finest coaches in the National Football League. His integrity, knowledge of the game, work ethic and outstanding abilities as a teacher and communicator make him the ideal head coach to lead the Chiefs for many years to come.”
Reid, who enters his 22nd NFL season in 2013, joins the Chiefs after a 14-year stint as the head coach and executive vice president of football operations for the Philadelphia Eagles.
“My family and I are very excited to join the Chiefs organization and the Kansas City community,” Reid said. “I want to thank the Hunt family for allowing me the opportunity to lead this storied franchise. The Chiefs have always had a passionate fan base and I’m looking forward to Sundays at Arrowhead Stadium. We’ve got a lot of work to do to get ready for next season, and we are going to get started immediately.”
Reid joined Philadelphia as head coach in 1999 and remained in that role through the 2012 season, becoming one of just 11 first-time NFL head coaches to lead 12-or-more seasons with the same club. Reid assumed the additional role of executive vice president of football operations in 2001.
Reid boasts a career record of 130-93-1 (.583) in the regular season. He also owns a 10-9 postseason record. His 140 wins in regular season and postseason play rank 22nd in NFL history. Among active head coaches through Week 17 of the 2012 season, Reid ranks fifth in regular season and playoff wins, trailing only Bill Belichick (204), Mike Shanahan (175), Tom Coughlin (163) and Jeff Fisher (154). While compiling his 10-9 postseason record, Reid led the Eagles franchise to one Super Bowl appearance, a game that saw Philadelphia fall by a mere field goal to the New England Patriots following the 2004 season. He has earned NFL Coach of the Year accolades on three occasions.
Reid guided Philadelphia to nine playoff appearances (2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010) during his 14-year tenure in the City of Brotherly Love. During that time period, only Indianapolis (12) and New England (10) had more postseason appearances than the Eagles. Reid’s playoff accomplishments as a head coach include six NFC East division titles (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2010), five NFC Championship Games (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2008) and one Super Bowl berth (XXXIX). When you include his time as an NFL assistant coach, his teams have made the playoffs 15 times (19-14 record), and he has coached in three Super Bowls and eight NFC Championship Games.
Among coaches with 200 games under their belt, Reid’s winning percentage ranks 13th all-time and second among active coaches behind Belichick. Reid is also one of six active coaches in the NFL to have reached the century mark in wins, joining Belichick, Shanahan, Coughlin, Fisher and John Fox.
Most recently, the Eagles captured their sixth NFC East division title under Reid in 2010 as they set franchise records in points scored (439, 3rd in NFL), total net yards (6,230, 2nd in NFL) and yards per rushing attempt (5.4, 1st in NFL). Along the way, Reid played a vital role in the rebirth of QB Michael Vick, who earned Comeback player of the Year honors as well as a Pro Bowl berth. Reid, himself, earned Coach of the Year honors from the Maxwell Football Club.
In 2008, Reid became the 37th coach to reach the 100-win plateau, and the 22nd to win 100 games with one franchise. He overcame a 5-5-1 start to reach the NFC Championship game.
In 2006, the Eagles lost six of their first 11 games and two of their most explosive players in QB Donovan McNabb and DE Jevon Kearse, but Reid led a season-ending, five-game win streak to capture the NFC East division title.
The 2004 Eagles clinched the NFC East title with five games remaining in the regular season and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs after a 13-1 start. Along the way, Reid passed Greasy Neale for the most wins in franchise history as the Eagles earned their first trip to the Super Bowl since 1980.
In 2003, Philadelphia overcame an 0-2 start and a slew of injuries to post its second consecutive 12-win season. A year earlier, Reid was the overwhelming choice as the NFL’s Coach of the Year as the Eagles thrived without the services of McNabb to still capture home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs.
After a 5-11 mark in his first season, Reid led the 2000 Eagles to the greatest turnaround in franchise history, finishing second in the NFC East at 11-5 and earning a trip to the NFC Divisional Playoffs. For his efforts, Reid was named the NFL’s Coach of the Year by the Maxwell Football Club, The Sporting News, and Football Digest.
Coming off being one of the longest-tenured and most successful coaches in all of professional sports, Reid utilizes a passionate, yet workmanlike approach as an NFL head coach. A former offensive lineman at Brigham Young University, Reid still lives and works with the humble principles he learned during his time in the trenches. His vision, dedication and organizational skills have been cited as paramount attributes to his sustained success in the National Football League.
Throughout his time in the NFL, Reid has continuously evaluated what is best for the game of football, serving on the NFL Competition Committee’s Coaches Subcommittee. The subcommittee is instrumental in providing feedback to the NFL Competition Committee for potential rule changes and ways to improve the game.
“I am a huge fan of Coach Reid,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “He is a person I have tremendous respect for as a coach and family man. Andy has been very helpful to me as Commissioner. He has tremendous insight into our game, and we are fortunate to have him in the NFL.”
Reid was originally introduced as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles on Jan. 11, 1999, after spending seven seasons as an assistant coach with the Green Bay Packers under Head Coach Mike Holmgren. During his seven years with the Packers, Reid served as the tight ends coach and assistant offensive line coach (1992-96) and as quarterbacks coach (1997-98). In his span with the Packers, the team reached the playoffs six times and represented the NFC twice in back-to-back Super Bowls, defeating New England in Super Bowl XXXI and falling to Denver in Super Bowl XXXII.
During his two-year stint as quarterbacks coach, Reid worked with Packers quarterback Brett Favre. While tutoring Favre, Reid and the Packers won their second straight NFC title and Favre garnered league MVP honors for the third consecutive season. In his first NFL coaching role, Reid oversaw the tight ends while assisting Offensive Line Coach Tom Lovat. Under Reid’s watchful eye, tight ends Mark Chmura and Keith Jackson earned trips to the Pro Bowl as part of the NFC roster.
Prior to joining the NFL ranks, Reid’s final collegiate stop was also in the Show-Me State as he coached the offensive line at the University of Missouri (1989-91). Prior to his stint with the Tigers, Reid spent two years working with the offensive line at the University of Texas – El Paso, and before that, he held the same position with Northern Arizona. In 1983, Reid took the position of offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at San Francisco State, helping the Gators lead the nation in passing and total offense for three consecutive years (1983-85).
A tackle and guard at Brigham Young University from 1979-81, Reid entered the coaching ranks as a graduate assistant at BYU under Head Coach LaVell Edwards in 1982. It was in that time at BYU that Reid began his association with Holmgren, who served as the quarterbacks coach for the Cougars. While at BYU, Reid earned both a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree in professional leadership in physical education and athletics. While playing for the Cougars, Reid was also a columnist for the Provo Daily Herald.
A native of Los Angeles, Reid prepped at John Marshall High School in Los Angeles and went on to go to Glendale (Calif.) Junior College before attending BYU. In 2012, Reid was inducted into the Marshall High School Athletic Hall of Fame and was named to the Glendale Junior College Hall of Fame in 2003.
Born Andrew Walter Reid on March 19, 1958 in Los Angeles, he and his wife, Tammy, have five children, sons Spencer, Britt and the late Garrett, and daughters Drew Ann and Crosby.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that the club and General Manager Scott Pioli have mutually agreed to part ways.
“After several productive conversations, we made the difficult decision to part ways with Scott Pioli and allow him to pursue other opportunities,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “Scott has been an invaluable member of the Chiefs family since joining us in 2009, and we sincerely appreciate his tremendous contributions over the last four years.
“I know that this was a difficult decision for Scott as well. He has a great deal of appreciation for the history of this franchise, for our players, coaches and employees, and especially our great fans.
“There is no way to overstate the level of respect and admiration I have for Scott on a personal level. His character, loyalty, integrity and commitment to a team are extraordinary, and throughout the last four years, he has consistently put the best interests of the Chiefs ahead of his own. I know he will go on to enjoy further success in the National Football League, and I certainly wish him the best in the future.”
Pioli, 47, was named the Chiefs General Manager on Jan. 13, 2009 and has served in that position for four seasons. During his stint with the Chiefs, the club earned its first division title and home playoff appearance since 2003 and Pioli earned NFL Executive of the Year honors from national media outlets in 2010.
Pioli released the below statement on parting ways with the club:
“I would like to thank Norma, Clark and the Hunt Family for the opportunity that they gave me four years ago. I’d also like to thank the players, coaches, scouts and countless other employees, throughout the organization and at Arrowhead Stadium that have worked so hard during my time here. I would also like to genuinely thank Chiefs fans.
“The bottom line is that I did not accomplish all of what I set out to do. To the Hunt family – to the great fans of the Kansas City Chiefs – to the players, all employees and alumni, I truly apologize for not getting the job done.”
Please contact Ted Crews in the Chiefs Communications department with any questions or inquiries.
GLENDALE, Ariz. — De’Anthony Thomas returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for the first of his two touchdowns, Marcus Mariota accounted for three scores, and No. 5 Oregon raced past No. 7 Kansas State 35-17 at the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night.
Oregon (12-1) jumped out to a 15-0 lead behind Thomas’ opening return and 23-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter.
Kansas State (11-2) tried to bull its way behind Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein, only to get overwhelmed by the speedy Ducks, who got some help with an obscure 1-point safety on a blocked extra-point kick.
Mariota added a 24-yard touchdown pass to Kenjon Barner in the second quarter and ran for a 2-yard score in the third to give Oregon its second straight BCS bowl win after beating Wisconsin in last year’s Rose Bowl.
Klein threw two interceptions and had 30 yards rushing on 13 carries.
