Reid will meet with the media in Kansas City Monday. The deal is a five-year contract. His hiring followed the departure of Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli. He and Chiefs president Clark Hunt mutually decided to part ways after four seasons.
Reid coached the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999-2012. The Eagles made the playoffs in nine of those seasons, including one trip to the Super Bowl. The Chiefs fired Romeo Crennel Monday after a 2-14 season. That record earned Kansas City the top selection in the NFL Draft in April.
