Former Eagles head coach Andy Reid will meet with officials from the Chiefs on Wednesday in Philadelphia to discuss Kansas City's recently vacated head coaching position, and then he will fly to Arizona that night to interview with the Cardinals on Thursday, according to a report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

The Chiefs parted ways with head coach Romeo Crennel on Monday. Team officials were in Atlanta on Tuesday to meet with Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter before heading to Philadelphia for a discussion with Reid. Falcons officials later confirmed that Koetter will not seek a head coaching position during this offseason.

Reid was fired on Monday by the Eagles after 14 seasons. He had been the longest tenured coach in the NFL at the time. He is putting together a new coaching staff this week and is hopeful to have reached a decision with a new team by the end of the week.
