KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Andy Reid is putting the final touches on his first coaching staff in Kansas City, hiring former Jaguars offensive line coach Andy Heck to fulfill the same duty with the Chiefs.
Reid also announced Wednesday that Kevin O'Dea will be an assistant special teams coach.
Heck will work closely with Reid, who intends to call plays in Kansas City, and new offensive coordinator Doug Pederson. Heck has spent 22 seasons as a coach in the NFL, including the past nine working with the offensive line in Jacksonville.
Heck played 12 seasons in the NFL for Washington, Chicago and Seattle.
O'Dea will be reunited with Dave Toub, who was hired as the Chiefs' special teams coach on Tuesday. O'Dea worked with Toub for four years in Chicago.
