KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A person familiar with Andy Reid’s plans tells The Associated Press that the former Eagles coach is interviewing with the Kansas City Chiefs for their open job. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the information was not made public. ESPN.com first reported that Reid was meeting with the Chiefs.

Kansas City has also interviewed Atlanta offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, but Falcons coach Mike Smith said Wednesday that Koetter signed a new contract and would not be a candidate for head coaching jobs this season. The Chiefs fired Romeo Crennel on Monday after going 2-14 in his first full season.
