Bill Belichick ‘will be the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs’ after Andy Reid ‘retires after this year,’ claims NFL analyst – after the six-time Super Bowl winner’s Atlanta snub
Legendary NFL coach Bill Belichick’s next destination is Kansas City, analyst Craig Carton has claimed.
The second-winningest coach in NFL history is currently available after ending his reign with the New England Patriots earlier this month. But after being snubbed by the Atlanta Falcons for their head coach vacancy the chances of seeing him back in the league next season are slim. Belichick had interviewed twice with Atlanta but they opted to hire Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris instead, leaving just the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Commanders on the hunt for new head coaches.
However, Carton believes neither franchise will be Belichick’s new home as he claimed the 71-year-old will take charge at the reigning Super Bowl champions. Speaking on his FS1 program, The Carton Show, on Friday, the host suggested that current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid will retire at the end of this season and Kansas City owner Clark Hunt will bring in Belichick to replace him.
I think Bill Belichick will be the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs next year,’ Carton began. ‘I think that’s where he goes after Andy Reid retires after this year. There’s some smoke around that he may retire. He had a great Hall of Fame career.’ The Chiefs are said to fear Reid walking away at the end of the season, despite the 65-year-old coach insisting he is not considering calling it a day.
