By Associated Press 6:37am, January 4, 2013 - Updated 3:14pm, January 4, 2013Andy Reid has arrived in Kansas City and the Chiefs are close to making an announcement that he will become their new coach.
Reid and the Chiefs have reportedly agreed to a deal giving the longtime Eagles coach broad authority over football decisions. His deal Friday came hours after the Chiefs announced they had parted with general manager Scott Pioli after four tumultuous seasons.
Reid would be inheriting a team that was 2-14 and matched the worst finish in franchise history, but that also had five players voted to the Pro Bowl.
It's expected that Reid would pursue longtime Packers personnel man John Dorsey, one of his close confidants, to work with him as general manager.
