NFL roundup, Andy Reid signs deal with Chiefs; Chip Kelly, Browns close
Andy Reid officially became the coach of the Chiefs Friday. The longtime Eagles coach signed a five-year deal, two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the terms of the contract.
The Chiefs have scheduled an introductory news conference for Monday.
It's expected that Reid will pursue longtime Packers personnel man John Dorsey or former Browns GM Tom Heckert -- or perhaps both of them -- to work with him in the front office.
Reid, 54, inherits a team that went 2-14, but the Chiefs have the No. 1 pick in the draft and five Pro Bowl players.
Kelly chooses Browns
The Browns interviewed Kelly, 49, Friday before the Ducks' coach was supposed to meet with Philadelphia. However, a person familiar with the interviews says the Eagles are "heading in another direction" because Kelly is nearing a deal with Cleveland.
That person said the Eagles planned to interview several other candidates regardless of any conversations with Kelly.
The Eagles were granted permission to interview Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, and they are scheduled to meet with Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy Sunday.
Kelly turned down an offer from Tampa Bay last year to return for his fourth season at Oregon, where he is 46-7.-- AP
