The Kansas City Chiefs named Brett Veach as their new general manager on Monday, the team announced. Veach now holds the title of Chiefs co-director of player personnel. Over the last four seasons, I've had the privilege to work alongside Andy Reid, John Dorsey and a great group of coaches and personnel staff. Before coming to KC, Veach worked as an assistant under coach Andy Reid with the Philadelphia Eagles since 2007.

Veach becomes just the seventh general manager in the history of the Chiefs. They also had rumored interest in Louis Riddick, an National Football League analyst who used to work alongside Reid in the front office with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The hiring of Veach ends a almost three-week long search for a new general manager following the team's separation from Dorsey. He shared that role with Mike Borgonzi.

"My family and I would like to extend our gratitude to Clark and the Hunt family for this incredible opportunity", Veach said. "Over the last four seasons he's played a critical role in building our football team".

"After a comprehensive search process, I am pleased to announce that we have hired Brett Veach to serve as the next General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs", Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to continuing our progress as we head into 2017".

"Together, we built a strong foundation of players that have helped us sustain success on the field".

The Chiefs will formally introduce Veach at a news conference July 24 at Arrowhead Stadium. The team starts training camp four days later.
