Andy Reid could lose more than one trusted Chiefs confidant
Doug Pederson will be on his way to the City of Brotherly Love in 2016 — and more Kansas City assistants might join him.
The Chiefs-coordinator-turned-Eagles-coach is reportedly targeting longtime Andy Reid aide Brad Childress as his offensive coordinator in Philadelphia. Childress currently works as K.C.’s "special projects/spread game" coordinator.
Possible coordinators for Doug Pederson: OC: retaining Pat Shurmur or bringing Brad Childress from KC. DC: Mike Pettine or Jim Schwartz.

Pederson is extremely familiar with Childress. They’ve worked together in Kansas City and as a player-coach
He’s a familiar name to most NFL fans, too. Childress rose as Reid’s assistant, took a job as Vikings head coach for four years (2006-10), and recently coordinated the Browns’ offense.
Reid might’ve leaned on Childress to take over for Pederson. Now he might lose them both to his former team.
