On week after being fired from his post with the Philadelphia Eagles, Andy Reid has been officially introduced as the new head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The 54-year-old coach takes over for Romeo Crennel, who went 2-14 in his first full season as coach this past NFL season. Crennel was fired last Monday (December 31), the same day Reid was dismissed.

"I understand the energy that I have and that I bring to this organization," Reid said during the press conference, according to "We'll start from the bottom and we'll start working. I'll bring in a good staff and we'll get down to what's important."

He'll have his work cut out for him though. The Chief's 2-14 season was the worst season of its 53-year history.

As the head coach of the Eagles, Ried records 130 wins, six division titles, and a single appearance in the Super Bowl.
