Former Vikings head coach Brad Childress will not be taking over as OC for Nagy. NFL Network is reporting that he will retire.

In 2016, Childress was the co-OC. This season he was Andy Reid’s assistant coach.

#Chiefs assistant head coach Brad Childress has been planning to retire, sources tell @JamesPalmerTV and me, and it doesn’t sound like Andy Reid will be able to talk him out of it after Matt Nagy’s departure. He’s at peace. More turnover in KC.
