The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to a contract extension with head coach Andy Reid on Thursday. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Reid was entering the fifth and final year of his deal before being extended. Also, GM John Dorsey decided to part ways with the team.
The announcements almost happened simultaneously. CEO Clark Hunt told Dorsey would not be extended after 2017. Hunt said in a statement that it was in his “best interests” to part ways. Hunt made the announcement about a half hour after the Reid deal.
The NFL Network reported that no successor has been named at this time. Reid has had a role in player personnel during his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, so a larger role with the Chiefs would not be a shock.
Dorsey had taken over the team in 2013 after the team went 2-13.
