Matt House leaving for Chiefs; early favorite for his replacement emerges

House and the Chiefs end up getting what they want.

Defensive coordinator Matt House is leaving the Kentucky Wildcats after all to join the Kansas City Chiefs.

Matt Jones of KSR was the first to report that Kentucky and house have reached an agreement to leave the school and become the linebackers coach in Kansas City.

Justin Rowland of Cats Illustrated said the Chiefs made a second run at House on Monday, which ultimately led to the Chiefs getting House. It also looks like Kentucky has found his replacement:

The first report came out on Friday that House was leaving for Kansas City. But on Saturday, it was reported that House had turned down the job offer and was going to stay at Kentucky.

Then the story had another twist, as it was reported by NFL insiders that House did want to take the Kansas City job and it was essentially done, but Kentucky decided to prevent the move from happening.

Now, it appears linebackers coach Brad White will become Kentucky’s next defensive coordinator.
