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.

Via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Pederson is extremely familiar with Childress. They’ve worked together in Kansas City and as a player-coach tadem; Childress coached Pederson on the Eagles in 1999.

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.
