The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly close to making Andy Reid their next head coach. The major issues that once existed between the two sides have been discussed and agreed upon, according to a report Thursday morning from Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Reid, who had become the longest tenured coach in the NFL during his 14 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, was scheduled to meet the Arizona Cardinals today. Despite reports that the Cardinals were close to a deal, it now appears that the Chiefs are the frontrunners.

Officials from the Chiefs and Reid spent Wednesday at a private airport in the Philadelphia area discussing the terms of Reid's potential deal. According to the report, the Chiefs are willing to give him more control in shaping the team and its personnel than what the Cardinals are expected to offer him. He was supposed to fly to Arizona after the meeting to meet with Cardinals officials on Thursday, but according to Schefter, Reid did not get on the flight.

Team officials can interview coaches of playoffs teams but offers or even contract negotiations must wait until those playoffs teams have been eliminated.
