Kansas City, MO (Associated Press) During a tumultuous week in the NFL when serious injuries to numerous key players dominated headlines, the Kansas City Chiefs are reporting that head coach Andy Reid stepped down earlier today.
Reid, 54, who took over the hapless Chiefs this season following fourteen years in Philadelphia, stepped down from a bus carrying members of the organization as they returned to the team's training facilities from a breakfast at an undisclosed Kansas City eatery. "He sat near the front of the bus and was the first to get up and step down off the van," said Football Operations Coordinator Mitchell Reynolds, "then the rest of us stepped down and headed back to work for the afternoon."
Reid's move came as little surprise to those within the organization who pointed out that he usually sits near the front on such outings because of his size and doesn't want to inconvenience others by heading toward the back. "He is always a gentleman," stated Human Resources Coordinator Alisha Bennett.
