Getty ImagesSince Andy Reid made his way to Kansas City, we’ve heard talk of both Juan Castillo and Tony Sparano as candidates to become the team’s offensive line coach.
Based on a report from Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com, that will never progress beyond talk. Marvez reports that Andy Heck will join Reid’s staff to coach the team’s offensive linemen.
Heck has spent the last seven years as the Jaguars’ offensive line coach, but was set free to look for other opportunities even before the team fired head coach Mike Mularkey last week. The Jaguars line helped Maurice Jones-Drew to a rushing title in 2011 and paved the way for the three biggest rushing seasons in franchise history during Heck’s tenure. He’s never worked with Reid, who employed just two offensive line coaches during his tenure with the Eagles.
Heck spent 12 years in the NFL as a tackle with the Seahawks, Bears and Redskins. Should the Chiefs hold onto the first overall pick, left tackle Luke Joeckel could be on the list of players they consider selecting with the pick.
