The Chargers are now in the mix to interview Andy Reid, joining the Cards and the Chiefs in pursuit of the former Eagles head coach, Reuben Frank of CSN Philadelphia reports. This according to two league sources Thursday morning.
Both sources disputed an ESPN report that said Reid and the Chiefs are very close to a deal that would make Reid head coach in Kansas City.
The first source said Reid is clearly at the top of the Chiefs’ list. Reid met in Philadelphia Wednesday with Chiefs brass for nearly nine hours.
However, the second source told CSNPhilly Eagles Insider Geoff Mosher that the Chiefs have not yet made Reid a formal offer.
Despite the Chiefs’ strong interest, Reid is still in the mix with the Cards and the Chargers, the sources both said. The first source did say there is no set time yet for either meeting but added, “They’re still talking to all three teams."
The Chiefs could hire Reid immediately, since they've fulfilled their obligations under the league's Rooney Rule by interviewing a minority candidate, Falcons special teams coach Keith Armstrong, a Bucks County native who's also interviewed with the Eagles.
There have been no confirmed reports of the Chiefs interviewing anybody other than Reid and Armstrong.
