Andy Reid is bringing another former Eagle to Kansas City.

Former Eagles and Packers cornerback Al Harris will join Reid's coaching staff as a defensive assistant and secondary coach.

"We are happy to add Al to our staff," Reid said in a statement released by the Chiefs. "Al's playing experience over 15 years will bring a unique perspective for our players."

Harris, who spent five seasons with the Eagles, had 21 interceptions, four sacks and two forced fumbles in his career. He made two Pro Bowls.

This is Harris' first coaching job in the NFL. He spent time with the Miami Dolphins as a coaching intern during the 2012 season.

Harris joins former Eagles assistants Doug Pederson (offensive coordinator), Matt Nagy (quarterbacks), Tommy Brasher (defensive line), David Culley (assistant head coach/wide reeiverrs), Tom Melvin (tight ends), Barry Rubin (head strength and conditioning) and trainer Rick Burkholder on Reid's Kansas City staff.
