Chiefs hire ex-Eagle Greg Lewis to coach wide receivers

January 25, 2017

Greg Lewis played for the Eagles for six years.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs have hired Greg Lewis as their new wide receivers coach.

Lewis spent last season in the same role for the Philadelphia Eagles, where he began his NFL career in 2003 as a free agent under coach Andy Reid -- now his new boss in Kansas City. He played eight seasons with the Eagles (2003-08) and Vikings (2009-10), playing in all four of Philadelphia's NFC Championship games and catching a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

Lewis was an assistant with the New Orleans Saints in 2015 after three seasons coaching in college.

“I’m very familiar with Greg, both as a player and a coach,” Reid said. “He’s played the game, he understands our system and the kind of production we expect out of our wide receivers. He’s taking over a talented group of guys and I know he is looking forward to the challenge of helping them and our team continue to grow.”
