Childress is favorite to be Bills OC

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Kansas City Chiefs co-offensive coordinator Brad Childress is the favorite to become the new Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator. He has spent the past four years under Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

When he came to Kansas City, he was first their spread game analyst. Then, before this season, he was promoted to be co-offensive coordinator.

If he is officially hired by Sean McDermott, the new Bills head coach, it would mean the former Minnesota Vikings head coach is reunited with Leslie Frazier. He was recently named McDermott’s defensive coordinator.

Also in the mix with Childress is former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson. He was fired by the Jaguars in Oct. by former Jags head coach Gus Bradley — who was fired by Shad Khan late in the season.

Should Childress leave the Chiefs, Matt Nagy would be officially the Chiefs offensive coordinator. The 60-year-old Childress was previously the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator in 2012, before taking a job with the Chiefs.

He was the Vikings head coach from 2006 to 2010. Prior to being with Reid in Kansas City, the two were previously together with the Philadelphia Eagles.

He was the Eagles offensive coordinator from 2003 to 2005. He also was their quarterbacks coach from 1999 to 2002.

Prior to joining the Eagles, he was the Wisconsin Badgers offensive coordinator from 1994 to 1998. He was their running backs coach from 1991 to 1993.

Childress was the Utah Utes wide receivers coach in 1990. He was the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks offensive coordinator from 1986 to 1989.

In 1985, he was the Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks coach. Before going to the National Football League, he was the Illinois Fighting Illini wide receivers coach from 1981 to 1984.

He began his coaching career as the Fighting Illini running backs coach from 1978 to 1980.
