The #Chiefs are hiring Steve Spagnuolo as their new defensive coordinator, sources say. The former #Giants DC and interim HC/#Rams HC began his NFL coaching career as an #Eagles assistant under Andy Reid. Now rejoins Big Red in KC.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) January 24, 2019
Spagnuolo was most recently the Giants’ defensive coordinator and interim head coach in 2017. He was also the Rams head coach from 2009-2011. He shares the same agent as Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and the two worked together when Reid was the coach in Philadelphia.
Spagnuolo replaces Bob Sutton, who was fired on Tuesday.
