Andy Reid to interview with Chiefs before heading to Arizona

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The highly coveted former Eagles head coach will speak to the Chiefs in Philadelphia before making his way west to interview for the Cardinals' vacancy.

Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid interviewed on Wednesday in Philadelphia for the vacant Kansas City Chiefs head coaching position, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Reid is being targeted by a number of teams due to his track record of success with the Eagles, despite the team's struggles in 2012. The Cardinals are reportedly interested in him as a replacement for Ken Whisenhunt, who was fired on Monday after Arizona finished the season 5-11.

The news of Reid's interview with the Chiefs is the latest in a young but turbulent offseason for several non-playoff teams, but it should come as no surprise given the fluidity of the NFL's coaching landscape. On Monday, seven head coaches were fired -- more than were fired combined at the end of the regular season over the past three seasons.

The Chiefs were last in the NFL in points per game, turnovers and passing touchdowns, all of which led to the ousting of former head coach Romeo Crennel. The Cardinals were particularly bad at the quarterback position and on offense, two areas of relative strength for Reid. He is scheduled to arrive in Arizona on Wednesday night.
