Report: Andy Heck will be Chiefs 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 (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/kansas-city-chiefs-hire-andy-heck-as-offensive-line-coach-011613) 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 (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3596/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.

Let's hope that he's a MUCH, MUCH better O-Line coach than he was playing LT on that particular day.

I would say Harbaugh is a better coach than he was QB and with all the homework Cassel does I think he's gonna be a great coach. Has the will not the talent and you know what they say those who can not do teach.

What I remember if Jim Harbaugh as a qb was he was a gamer. He always played hard, wasn't always blessed with a good supporting cast. I remember that AFc chamionship game where the Colts list to Pit, came down to the last play, and I thought for a min the Colts were going to the SB. But he seems tI have taken his coaching to the next level. Not a team he built, but a team that has taken on his persona. I can't lie, I'm jealous of what the nines have now. Hopefully coach Reid will bring us out of mediocrity.

Wayne Gretzky was a terrible coach
