It's Official: Andy Reid Signs as Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs announced Friday night that former Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid is now the Chiefs' head coach.

The Chiefs released a photo of Reid and Chiefs owner Clark Hunt signing Reid's five-year contract.

KCTV reports Hunt and Reid entered Arrowhead together about 2 p.m. Friday. The two men and their wives landed at Kansas City's downtown airport on Hunt's private plane about 1 p.m. Friday.

Reid's arrival came just hours after Hunt announced Friday morning that Scott Pioli was out as general manager.

Reid had a 130-93-1 record in Philadelphia, including a 10-9 playoff record and a Super Bowl appearance after the 2004 season.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, are coming off a two-win season and have finished above .500 just once in six years.

They've had three coaches and three quarterbacks in that time, and it's reasonable to think Reid will bring in quarterback No. 4 for the 2013 season.
