Chiefs Hire Al Harris as assistant Secondary Coach; other assistants as well
 
Quote:

Longtime NFL cornerback Al Harris has a new job: The Chiefs have announced that Harris is their new secondary coach.

Harris played cornerback for new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid for four years in Philadelphia, and Reid obviously thinks Harris can teach younger players some things about the position.

ďAlís playing experience over 15 years will bring a unique perspective for our players,Ē Reid said in a statement.

Harris was drafted by the Buccaneers in 1997 but was cut before ever playing in a regular-season game for Tampa Bay. He later played for the Eagles from 1998 to 2002, the Packers from 2003 to 2009, the Dolphins in 2010 and the Rams in 2011. He spent 2012 as a coaching intern for the Dolphins.

The Chiefs also announced that Mark DeLeone has been hired as a quality control coach and Brent Salazar has been hired as assistant strength & conditioning coach.

I think the Assistant part is the key. Doesn't say anything about parting ways with Thomas.

Harris reunites with coach Reid and Dorsey

The Kansas City Chiefs made a key addition to their coaching staff on Friday, naming Al Harris as defensive assistant/secondary coach.

The two-time Pro Bowl player, Al Harris begins his first full season as an NFL assistant coach in Kansas City, joining the staff of his first NFL head coach, Andy Reid.

But wait, it gets even better.

Harris played for coach Reid from 1999-2002 and was later acquired by the Green Bay Packers personnel team that included current Chiefs general manager John Dorsey.

“We are happy to add Al to our staff,” Reid said. "Al's playing experience over 15 years will bring a unique perspective for our players.”

Originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the sixth round (169th overall) of the 1997 NFL Draft, Harris went on to play in 194 games (128 starts) with Philadelphia (1998-02), Green Bay (2003-09), Miami (2010) and St. Louis (2011).

The former All-Pro selection spent two seasons (1993-94) at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas. He then transferred to Texas A&M University-Kingsville (1995-96) and was a first-team All-Lone Star Conference pick in his senior season.

The best part of this offseason is that we got a GM and elite coaches who have proven that they can coach/find talent for our 2 biggest needs on the team: QB and CB.
