Apparently frustrated with a lack of progress from the Cheifs wide receivers, coach Todd Haley has made another staff change, replacing position coach Dedric Ward with Richie Anderson.
Anderson joined the Chiefs this year as a member of the NFL’s minority coaching fellowship program. A former NFL running back, he helped coach the wide receivers for the Jets in 2006.
Ward is still coaching for the Chiefs, but Anderson was running the receiver drills during the media portion of practice Thursday.
“Coach Haley and everybody involved in the decision making are trying to find a way to get things right,’’ wide receiver Bobby Wade said. “Richie’s been helping out for us. He’s been in our position meetings and at practice anyway. Dedric Ward’s still out there helping. So I think it’s more of a change for the coaches than for us. It’s not a drastic thing for us as players. It has more to do with how (Haley) wanted to see things done.
