KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Andy Reid has been introduced as the new coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, one week after he was fired following 14 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Reid was joined by Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt and several other team officials at a packed news conference at Arrowhead Stadium. Reid takes over for Romeo Crennel, who joined Reid and five other NFL coaches in losing their jobs last Monday.

Reid took the Eagles to the Super Bowl and won 130 games over his career. But things had soured the past couple seasons and he was dismissed after going 4-12.

He takes over a team that went 2-14, matching the worst finish in Chiefs history. That means the Chiefs pick first in the NFL draft for the first time.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — No. 10 Missouri heads into its first SEC game battle tested and then some.

A 2-point decision over Bucknell, an overtime loss at UCLA and a neutral-site victory over Illinois have all helped the Tigers (11-2) prepare for Tuesday night’s game against Alabama (8-5).

Missouri trailed at halftime and got outrebounded for the first time all season in their close call against Bucknell on Saturday before winning their 73rd consecutive non-conference home game. Coach Frank Haith is counting on such tests to toughen the roster now that the competition figures to step up on a consistent basis.

Alabama had lost five of six overall before beating Oakland 65-45 on Saturday to snap a three-game home losing streak.
