Andy Reid may not have much of a say in the hiring of his next personnel czar.
Reports following the recent dismissal of John Dorsey indicated the surprise move was made at least in part as a result of ownership’s concerns over communication style. La Canfora’s latest item would appear to support the notion that the decision indeed came from the top of the organization.
While it’s unclear whether any issues in the general manager-head coach relationship also played a role in the decision, it’s certainly not uncommon for a coach to be involved. Even Kyle Shanahan, despite his status as a first-time head coach, was afforded that luxury when it became clear he would get the lead job in San Francisco this offseason.
Perhaps it’s by design, with Reid continuing to focus solely on the on-field side of things. But for a coach of his stature, and one who’s had exclusive personnel control in the past, to not have that input is at the very least notable.
Reid and Dorsey led Kansas City to a a 43-21 record and three playoff appearances in four seasons after joining the club together in 2013.
