The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday that the club has added Brad Childress to the coaching staff. Childress will serve as the team’s Spread Game Analyst/Special Projects.

Childress joins the Chiefs after spending the 2012 season as the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator. He spent five years as the Minnesota Vikings head coach (2006-10), where he guided Minnesota to consecutive division titles (2008-09) for the first time in 28 years (1977-78). In 2009, the team posted a 12-4 record, matching the second-best win total in franchise history, while leading the NFL with a club-high 10 Pro Bowlers.
