 47 replies

The Kansas City Chiefs have added two defensive assistants to the staff with David Merritt being added as a defensive backs coach and Matt House as the linebackers coach.


David Merritt has served as a defensive coach with the Jets, Giants (where he worked under current DC Steve Spagnuolo) and the Cardinals prior to joining the Chiefs.

Matt House has 15 years of college coaching experience, along with three years with the St. Louis Rams from 2009-2011 working under Spagnuolo. His last stop was as the defensive coordinator for the University of Kentucky and is a candidate that many in Chiefs Kingdom were hoping Spags would bring on.
