The Kansas City Chiefs named Brett Veach as their new general manager on Monday, the team announced.
Veach, the Chiefs’ co-director of player personnel, replaces John Dorsey, who was fired last month by the Chiefs after four seasons.
“Brett has a sharp football mind, a tremendous work ethic and a keen eye for finding talent. Over the last four seasons he’s played a critical role in building our football team. I look forward to working with him to continue to build on the strong foundation we have in place,” Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement.
Veach has worked closely with Chiefs coach Andy Reid in the past. He was Reid’s assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles from 2007 to ’09 and was a scout for the Eagles from 2010 to ’12 before joining the Chiefs in 2013 when Reid took over as head coach.
