Vermeil told Reid to come to KC.

Thanks, Dick.

Vermeil advises Reid to take the Chiefs job


Quote:
Former Chiefs head coach Dick Vermeil gave Andy Reid one word of advice about taking the job in Kansas City.

“Go,” Vermeil said.


Vermeil, who lives in Philadelphia, speaks to Reid on a regular basis, including earlier this week before a contingent of Chiefs executives, led by chairman Clark Hunt, interviewed Reid for nine hours on Wednesday.

Negotiations were continuing on Thursday, and as of late in the afternoon, Vermeil had not heard if Reid and the Chiefs closed the deal.

Vermeil said there were several factors in why Reid was interested in the Chiefs, even when Arizona and San Diego had hoped to interview him.

“He’s coached at the University of Missouri,” Vermeil said of Reid’s three-year stint as on offensive line coach for the Tigers during 1989-91, “he’s been in middle America before and knows what the people are like. He knows how I feel about it. He’s been in that stadium. He kicked my rear … when we were ahead 18-0 … and he knows how the fans are there, and how that Arrowhead Stadium is when it’s full.

“And he knows the great respect and admiration people in the NFL have for the Hunt family, so why not go? There are no negatives.”

One negative is the shaky state of the quarterback position in Kansas City.

“You can’t have everything,” Vermeil said. “I’d rather have a great owner and no quarterback than a quarterback and not a great owner. They have a couple of quarterbacks (Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn) who have played well before, and maybe they’ll play well again. Sometimes schemes fit quarterbacks better than other schemes.

“This year took a guy out of college, for criminy sakes, (Nick Foles), a third-round draft choice, and he plays pretty darn well.”

Vermeil is confident that Reid, 54, can turn the Chiefs around.

“He’s been doing it for 14 years,” Vermeil said. “He finished on a downswing, but a lot of those things … the injury factor were part of the problem. The mistakes he’s made, if he has made any, he’ll know how to correct them. And he’s always had a great offensive football team, and when he’s had a real good defensive coordinator, he’s always had a good defensive team.

“When you’ve gone to five NFC championship games, you’ve done a hell of a job.”

Reid would be the third former Eagles coach or player to coach the Chiefs, following Vermeil (2001-05) and Herm Edwards (2006-08). Vermeil spent 1976-82 with the Eagles and took them to the Super Bowl following the 1980 season.

“You’ve got the best one,” Vermeil said of Reid. “He’s a great person and a great coach. I think he’ll fit in perfectly within that environment, within the community, and he’ll fit in the organization. I just don’t think you can do any better.”

Vermeil said Reid did not ask him about how he thought he could co-exist with Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli.

Grandpa Dick gave us some wonderful memories when it came to offense and oh were they so great. With that said, I can say two words to sum up his defense... Greg Robinson. OMG we were pathetic on defense!!!

This article fails to mention the moment in which Dick became emotional and began crying.

One thing that DV understands which the Pioli/Patriots Way doesn't, is he understands Kansas City, and the folks that live here. So does Andy Reid from his time at Mizzou. We're not snobbish east coast assholes. You can hold doors open for people and say please and thank you and people don't look at you like you're nuts. DV is a down to earth sincere person, you can't fault him for that and really the world needs more people like that. If a player knows that a coach cares about him, he will lay his body out on the line for that coach and he will play his ass off. That's what our offensive guys did for DV, and at the same time he demanded perfection.

I agree with you, but DV is old. He's from a time when the QB position wasn't the be all end all of the NFL. Fouts sucked, then with a system change became a very good QB.

It won't happen with Cassel though, because he sucks specifically at throwing the football... an important aspect of playing QB.

It's a shame Vermeil wasn't the consultant on our first go-around.

Even in the background, he's got the story perfect. I love how he acknowledged that Arrowhead is a force... but only when the stadium is full. Love how he made it pretty clear (even if he corrected himself midway through) that the QB is a problem. Love that he was direct in saying that Reid's defense has struggled because he hasn't made good Defensive Coordinator hires.

Wipe out Pioli's ridiculous media blackout. Get a new QB. Don't let Reid hire the DC. Sounds like a good formula right there.

Granted, this is a coach who refused to bench Tony Banks and had to have front office intervention to do it.

But I think his comments made clear that he thinks our QBs suck, and then he backtracked so he didn't throw our QBs under the bus. Don't think anyone can read that and think he's in any way endorsing Cassel or Quinn. But I get what he's saying. Think he's saying you have to make sure you fit in with the owner, because that's for life. Once you fit in with the owner, that owner can help you get your QB.

That's how I interpreted it.

DV tends to see things that aren't there in players. Sometimes, like with Dante Hall, he sees something that was there.
