There are three new additions to the staff, the most significant being former Philadelphia Eagles linebackers coach Ken Flajole. He’ll replace former Chiefs Outside Linebackers Coach Britt Reid, whose contract was not renewed after he was involved in a car crash that severely injured a five-year-old girl. Flajole previously served as defensive coordinator under Steve Spagnuolo when he was head coach of the St. Louis Rams from 2009-2011.

Also joining the Chiefs are former Youngstown State Defensive Coordinator Donald D’Alesio and former Los Angeles Chargers Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach Tyler Judkins.
