The Kansas City Chiefs now have another assistant coaching vacancy to fill.
The Baltimore Ravens announced on Wednesday that they’ve hired former Chiefs RB coach Greg Lewis for their WR coaching vacancy. Lewis was in the running for a position with the Washington Commanders under Eric Bieniemy, but they ultimately went a different direction.
When Andy Reid was asked about the situation with Lewis at the combine, he gave the following response to the Athletic’s Nate Taylor.
“I don’t know exactly where Greg is with things,” Reid said.
Well, now we know exactly where he stands.

Lewis has a long history with Andy Reid, which is where he first crossed paths with Ravens HC John Harbaugh. He played wide receiver with the Eagles from 2003-2008, a time when Harbaugh was special teams coordinator and defensive backs coach in Philly.
A member of the Chiefs’ coaching staff since 2017, Lewis spent four seasons as WR coach before becoming the team’s RB coach in 2021. He claimed that he wanted a new challenge and was switched to that position with Kansas City. Now, he’ll find himself back in his old role and the Chiefs will find themselves looking for their third RB coach of the Patrick Mahomes era.
