Chiefs add Childress to coaching staff

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs have hired former Vikings coach Brad Childress, reuniting him with Andy Reid.

Childress, who spent last season as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns, will be the Chiefs’ spread game analyst and work on special projects.

He spent five years as the Minnesota head coach (2006-10), a stint that included two division titles (2008-09). The team was 12-4 in 2009.

Childress previously spent seven seasons (1999-2005) with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he worked with Reid, the new Chiefs head coach. Childress coached the quarterbacks for the first three years and spent the final four as offensive coordinator.

The hire was announced Thursday.
