Back in the days of the Chilly War, Kremlinologists attempted to figure out what was taking place at the higher stages of the federal government of the Soviet Union by finding out images of Soviet leaders at general public appearances. Occasionally by paying awareness to which leaders were standing subsequent to other people, they could figure out which leaders held the most energy in the halls of the Kremlin, and which kinds were on the way out.
Something comparable has been taking place because the Kansas City Chiefs introduced the firing of defensive coordinator Bob Sutton. But not like Chilly Warriors, we really don’t have to use magnifying eyeglasses to analyze grainy images of parade reviewing stands. Alternatively, we have Twitter!
Here’s a timeline of what we know:
The latest piece of information here is that defensive high-quality management assistant Jay Valai is reportedly staying employed by Rutgers College as their cornerbacks mentor. As of this creating, this is not confirmed Valai is nonetheless shown on the roster of Chiefs assistant coaches.
Only Spagnuolo’s hiring — and the retirement of Thomas — have been formally introduced by the Chiefs. The Packers and Bears formally introduced the hires of Smith and DeLeone, and equally were taken off from the Chiefs roster of assistant coaches.
When it was described that Merritt had been employed as defensive backs mentor, the presumption was that the positions of equally Thomas and secondary/cornerbacks mentor Al Harris could be in jeopardy. With Thomas’ retirement, Harris’ situation appears more tenable, but we really don’t know that for certain.
Also unidentified is the status of Britt Reid (son of head mentor Andy Reid) who is nonetheless shown as defensive line mentor. The original report that Daly had been employed as Chiefs defensive line mentor appeared to be stable, and Daly is not now shown as a Patriots assistant mentor.
It could be that the Chiefs are waiting around for the more youthful Reid (and probably Harris) to find positions elsewhere just before producing an official announcement about all the coaching variations. That would seem to be to be dependable with Andy Reid’s management model — significantly when a person of the assistant coaches in question is his personal son.
Reid was employed as Chiefs head mentor on January 4, 2013. Just a person 7 days later on, the Chiefs had introduced who would serve as offensive and defensive coordinators beneath Reid, as properly as the names of most of the assistant coaches.
It’s now been eleven days because Chiefs GM Brett Veach claimed that all the assistant coaches would be “nailed down” in a number of days. What is the holdup?
