Two days after being dismissed by the Eagles, Andy Reid is set to interview with the Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals for their Head Coach vacancies on Wednesday.
As expected, less than 48 hours after officially being relieved of his duties as Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach, Andy Reid’s name is circulating as a leading candidate for vacancies across the league.
Multiple sources confirm that Reid is scheduled to meet with the Cardinals for an interview with team President Michael Bidwell for the team’s Head Coaching position vacated by recently fired KenWisenhunt. The Cardinals job is intriguing to Reid, as his wife Tammy, is from the Phoenix area.
Also, if Reid takes the Arizona job, it would mean a reunion with quarterback Kevin Kolb, who was drafted by the Eagles in the second round in 2007.
“He’ll make a push that he can fix Kevin Kolb,” A league source tells Taking It To The House. “He’ll try to sell Kolb as a franchise quarterback.”
Kolb has thrown for 5,206 yards, 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions in his career.
Meanwhile, ESPN’s Chris Mortenson reports that Reid will interview with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday before flying to Arizona for his meeting with the Cardinals brass.
Kansas City fired Romeo Crennel on Monday and team officials flew to Atlanta on Tuesday to interview Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and will meet with Reid Wednesday.
Multiple sources say that Reid is already assembling a coaching staff for his next job after being fired by Philadelphia after 14 seasons on Monday.
It is likely that if Reid does not take either the Chiefs or Cardinals jobs, that he will be considered a strong candidate for many of the seven openings across the league.
