PostSubject: UPDATE: Reid agrees to become Chiefs coach   Mon Dec 31, 2012 6:43 am

The Philadelphia Eagles didn't waste any time delaying the inevitable.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that coach Andy Reid was informed during a Friday meeting with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie that he'd be fired after the season finale against the New York Giants, according to two sources. The Eagles are expected to formally announce Reid's firing Monday.

The Andy Reid era is over in Philadelphia. Which other coaches could lose their jobs in the days ahead? More ...

The Eagles strongly denied the report, saying Lurie and Reid will meet Monday. During the Eagles' postgame news conference, Reid denied talking to Lurie about his job status.

"Whatever he chooses will be the right thing," Reid said in regard to Lurie's decision. "He's always done things for the best interest of the Eagles, and I completely understand either way."

No matter when the news becomes official, the Reid era has ended in ignominious fashion. The Eagles finished a 4-12 season with a 42-7 loss to the New York Giants.

Reid was the longest-tenured coach in the NFL at 14 seasons, going 130-92-1 during the regular season. He led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, including five NFC title games and one Super Bowl appearance.

The quick decision comes as no surprise. The Eagles are expected to aggressively go after some of the big names available in the coaching market. Oregon coach Chip Kelly and Penn State coach Bill O'Brien have been tied to Philadelphia in various reports.

Reid, meanwhile, doesn't figure to be out of work for long. Multiple reports have suggested Reid is interested in the San Diego Chargers job, but NFL.com's Albert Breer reported that interest doesn't appear to be mutual. Reid will want a lot of personnel control, and that wouldn't be the situation in San Diego.

Lurie surely regrets bringing back Reid for this season. The Eagles owner publicly read Reid the riot act after last season and said an 8-8 record wouldn't be acceptable. No one had any idea that things would get much, much worse.

Reid agrees to become Chiefs coach

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)

Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs have reached an agreement for him to become the team's new coach, FOXSports.com has learned.

COACHING CANDIDATES
See who the hottest names are as teams hunt for new head coaches.

The two sides spent much of Thursday in negotiations for Reid to become the Chiefs' coach, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss the situation.

I don't know eff, I think he would have done well turning around Arizona on a more permanent basis. I think only he or Lovie could truly help the cards.

Then again both organizations are in shambles.

At least he will get the number one pick in the draft so he will be able to start out right.
