The Kansas City Chiefs have selected Brad Childress and Matt Nagy to serve as co-offensive coordinators as they fill the void created when Doug Pederson departed to become head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Childress has been an offensive assistant on the Kansas City staff the past three seasons, while Nagy served as quarterbacks coach the past three seasons.
"We went through our process of finding an offensive coordinator and determined having coach Childress and coach Nagy serve as co-coordinators would benefit our football team the most," Kansas City coach Andy Reid said in a statement. "They both have a great feel for our system.
"Brad lends a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge to our offense. Matt has done a nice job tutoring the quarterbacks the last three years and will continue to work with the QBs, but will also take the next step in his professional growth and coordinate the offense with Brad. His feel for the game and well thought out ideas each week have impressed me. As we move forward, I'm excited to see how we work to take the Chiefs offense to an even higher level."
Reid said that he will continue to call the team's offensive plays. Childress will work from the press box during games and Nagy will be on the sideline.
Childress formerly was head coach of the Minnesota Vikings from 2006-10.
