Michael Vick joins Chiefs coaching staff as intern

Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick is at Chiefs camp as a coaching intern.

Vick said he was fine starting as a position coach and learning how to be a coordinator.

Vick likes the idea of coaching because it would give him a chance to do something that he was never able to do during his 13-year career: Win a Super Bowl.

Vick spent four seasons with Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles, from 2009-2012, after the quarterback was released from prison following his role in running a dog-fighting ring.

Vick told Schefter that his current priority was helping kids, and then casually slipped in "if I could coach one day or be an ambassador for somebody that's a great opportunity too". Obviously, I would love it with the Falcons as well.

During his time under Reid, Vick went 18-16 as a starter and threw for 8,769 yards, 52 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.

According to Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com, Vick will be joining the Chiefs as part of the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship program which is, "designed as a vocational tool to increase the number of full-time National Football League minority coaches".

"I don't want to bottle up a lot of knowledge", Vick said. I'm not done by any means.

"Vick joined the Kansas City Chiefs" staff as a training camp coaching intern, according to several reports. And I get that.
