The Kansas City Chiefs made it official Friday night, finalizing a deal to make Andy Reid their new head coach.
The Chiefs provided visual proof by tweeting out an image of a mustachioed man with beefy hands signing what we presume to be a contract. Romeo Crennel and Scott Pioli are out. Reid is in. A new era in Chiefs football.

The Chiefs will introduce Reid on Monday at a 1 p.m. CT news conference.
Reid signed a five-year contract, The Associated Press reported, citing two sources familiar with the situation.
Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie -- who fired Reid on Monday after 14 seasons with the team -- wished the coach well in a statement released by the team.
The new coach inherits a team with five Pro Bowl players, not to mention the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft. The Chiefs are coming off the grotesqueries associated with 2-14, but elements are in place for a quick turnaround.
