Andre Reed to work with Andy Reid in coaching fellowship

By Mark Gaughan

Buffalo Bills great Andre Reed this summer will get to learn on the job under one of the most veteran coaches in the NFL.

Reed has accepted a Bill Walsh Minority Coaching Fellowship position with Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs for this summer, Reed's representative, Jimmy Goldsmith, reports.

The coaching fellowship program is an annual NFL endeavor to give talented minority coaching prospects the chance to work during training camp and preseason with NFL coaching staffs. It's designed as a vocational tool to increase the number of full-time minority coaches in the league, and it was the brainchild of Walsh, the Hall-of-Fame coach of the 49ers.

Reid is in his first year with the Chiefs. He's the fifth most veteran head coach in the NFL, behind Mike Shanahan, Bill Belichick, Jeff Fisher and Tom Coughlin.
