Chiefs to hire Andy Reid as new coach

The writing was on the wall when the Chiefs announced Friday morning that they had parted ways with general manager Scott Pioli. A short time later, Andy Reid, who spent the previous 14 seasons with the Eagles, reached an agreement to be the Chiefs' new coach, CBSSports.com NFL Insiders Mike Freeman and Jason La Canfora confirmed.

According to the Associated Press, Reid signed a five-year deal.

La Canfora reported Friday evening that Green Bay executive John Dorsey is all but certain to serve as general manager under Reid with Reid reporting directly to owner Clark Hunt.

Reid had a 130-93-1 record in Philadelphia, including a 10-9 playoff record and a Super Bowl appearance after the 2004 season. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are coming off a two-win season and have finished above .500 just once in six years. They've had three coaches and three quarterbacks in that time, and it's reasonable to think Reid will bring in quarterback No. 4 for the 2013 season.

The Chiefs scheduled an introductory press conference for Monday.
