Out with the old and in with the new! After coming off of an abysmal 2-14 2012 season the Kansas City Chiefs have made some big changes and are pumped for the 2013 season. Can this be the makings of a “Redemption Year”?
The Chiefs have put some thought and planning in who they have brought into Kansas City with the signing of Head Coach Andy Reid and GM John Dorsey. The early signings of these two key head office additions allowed them to get an early start on bringing in the right coaching staff.
Head Coach Staff
- Andy Reid Head Coach
- David Culley Assistant Head Coach
- Brad Childress Spread Game Analyst/Special Projects
- Mike Frazier Statistical Analysis Coordinator
- Corey Matthaei Quality Control
- Britt Reid Quality Control
- Mark DeLeone Quality Control
Offensive Coaching Staff
- Doug Pederson Offensive Coordinator
- David Culley Wide Receivers
- Eric Bieniemy Running Backs
- Tom Melvin Tight Ends
- Matt Nagy Quarterbacks
- Andy Heck Offensive Line
- Eugene Chung Assistant Offensive Line
Defensive Coaching Staff
- Bob Sutton Defensive Coordinator
- Gary Gibbs Linebackers
- Emmitt Thomas Defensive Backs
- Al Harris Assistant Secondary
- Tommy Brasher Defensive Line
Special Teams Staff
Strength and Conditioning Staff
- Barry Rubin Strength and Conditioning
- Travis Crittenden Assistant Strength and Conditioning
- Brent Salazar Assistant Strength and Conditioning
With the coaching staff assembled early they had a very unique opportunity to start reviewing the team and finding out who they wanted to keep, release, as well as positions they needed to improve upon.
Through this precess the Chiefs managed to maintain players like Dustin Colquitt, Branden Albert, and Dwayne Bowe. All, with exception of Albert were about to go out into the free agency market and would have been picked up early by other teams.
KC also added some big names to the glaring holes the new staff recognized on film. Players like QB Alex Smith, CB Dunta Robinson, WR Donnie Avery, QB Chase Daniel, TE Anthony Fasano, CB Sean Smith, OL Geoff Schwartz, FB Ryan D’Imperio, and DE Mike DeVito.
The foundation is here KC and the stage is set for an exciting 2013 season. It’s time to put the past in the past and start winning again!
