Holy shit. I actually thought we should just straight up hire this guy as DC. He was on my list of top 3 candidates. We got him as LB coach?

Fucking homerun hire if it comes to pass

"House’s inside linebackers – both of whom were first-year starters – contributed significantly to UK’s success. Sophomore Jordan Jones led the team in tackles (109) and tackles for loss (15.5) while earning second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors. He also became an adept blitzer with four quarterback sacks and a team-high nine QB hurries. Junior Courtney Love was third on the team in tackles with 76 and his season was highlighted by the fumble recovery that set up the game-winning drive at Louisville."

I just read that House was with Spags on the Rams staff in 2009-11.

Also Kentuckys defense under House ranked 6th in the nation in points allowed 16.8

I don't think I would consider myself to be one in the "butt hurt" group, but I certainly understand their position. Chiefs fans deservedly wanted a new hire that would bring in a new culture to a very weak defense. The assumption was/is that a younger guy that is hungry would be the best option. Spags is not young, but I do think he is hungry to get back to head coaching. There is nothing wrong with him wanting to use the Chiefs to springboard to a future job. I am just hoping that it is a strong enough motivation for him to bust his ass, the players' asses, the assistant coaches asses because the DC job under Reid is a known place where one can coach from a position of security and leisure no matter the outcome on the field.

With all that bullshit said, House is the type of guy that those "butt hurt" fans wanted. He has a great resume of success with stud players. Now, I do not know if he helped make the players or if the players help make him, but he appears to have his shit together and understand the modern game of football.

They gotta learn to catch it first.

Interested to see if we look at any of Kentucky's players in the draft.

Jordan Jones would be an interesting LB to bring in.

Fuck fuck fuck.

House is a fantastic coach who helped transition the UK defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4.

The Chiefs have hired Dave Merritt as their new defensive backs coach, per Yates (Twitter link). Merritt was actually hired as the Jaguars’ assistant defensive line coach earlier this offseason, but Jacksonville has apparently let him out his contract in order to pursue a better opportunity. The 47-year-old Merritt worked under new Kansas City defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo in New York, working as the Giants’ defensive backs coach alongside Spags from 2007-08. The Chiefs haven’t announced whether incumbent secondary coaches Emmitt Thomas and Al Harris will be retained.

Having Matt House as your LBs coach is like having Picasso paint your kitchen.
