Chiefs hire Campbell native as RB coach

KANSAS CITY, Mo.

The Chiefs hired Campbell High School graduate Deland McCullough off the staff at Southern California on Friday to coach their running backs, taking the place of recently promoted assistant coach Eric Bieniemy.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid moved Bieniemy into the offensive coordinator job shortly after Matt Nagy, who had excelled in the role this past season, took the head job with the Chicago Bears.

McCullough spent six seasons with Indiana before coaching the Trojans’ running backs last season.

He played at Miami of Ohio before stints with the Bengals and Eagles in the NFL, two seasons with Winnipeg in the Canadian Football League and a season in the short-lived XFL.
