The press conference is over and John Dorsey is our new General Manager in Kansas City. Wow, I have to admit, this man impresses me. He carries himself well, answers the questions very clearly and sugar-coats absolutely nothing. He will tell it like it is, and you will just have to take it how he tells it. He in no way comes off as an arrogant boss, but very confident in his ability. He said in his press conference that becoming the General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs has “always been his dream job”. He said, “I was ecstatic when the Chiefs hired Andy Reid, I was even more excited when they called to interview me for the general manager position”. I have to say Chiefs Nation, if Clark Hunt was going to out-do himself after the Reid hire, he has done that with bringing in John Dorsey. There couldn’t be a better man for the job. Hands down the best decision yet, by far. Dorsey also told the press that he “has given out assignments already” to fellow staffers regarding the Free Agency/Draft/Trading block. Clark then finished up by saying, “We have a lot of things to get done in a very short amount of time…we will roll up our sleeves and get started this afternoon”. ( I will try to get the full presser uploaded as soon as possible)
Now is the time to cheer Chiefs Nation, Clark Hunt has just logged the second victory of the offseason (biggest yet).
In other Chiefs news:
The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that Doug Pederson would be the new Offensive Coordinator.”Doug has been around the game a long time, and he has great vision,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. “As a former player in this league, he sees the game from a different perspective, and that will be a great benefit for our players. He has a knack for developing talent, and he’s a good communicator. Doug is ready for this position.”
They also announced that Bob Sutton would be the team’s new defensive coordinator.
“Bob is a creative coach that is going to give our defense a variety of looks and packages,” Reid said. “He has a lot of experience and is well respected across the league. Bob has a high football IQ and knows how to get the most out of his players.”

On all the new coaches he has brought to Kansas City, Reid said, “I’m pleased we were able to get all of these coaches on board, I have relationships with each of them, and I know their past experiences, work ethics and coaching styles. These are high-character coaches, and each one brings something different to the table for us.”
To finish it up, I’d like to share with you my favorite quote from the John Dorsey press conference this afternoon: “Check your ego’s at the door”.
