In an effort to turn things around after weeks of offensive inadequacy, Chiefs coach Andy Reid plans to deliver offensive duties to offensive coordinator Matt Nagy for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. by Chris Mortensen of ESPN.
Mortensen also reported that, although quarterback Alex Smith has full support from Reid, Smith's performance on Sunday will determine how short of a belt he will receive for the remainder of the season.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid is sitting … himself. He has planned to deliver the game by calling OC Matt Nagy for today's game against Jets, although Reid will continue to have supervision, by team sources.

Despite always having an offensive coordinator (sometimes two), Reid has always called offensive plays in Kansas City. Nagy helps with the games during the games, but Reid has always had the last word.
The last few weeks have been difficult for the Chiefs' offense. He has had trouble placing points, even against humble defenses, while both Smith and running back Kareem Hunt have stumbled on the production quest. The recent ineptitude of the offense has caused KC to lose their last three games, so it's not a big surprise to see Reid shake things up.
