DC Matt House to leave Kentucky, join Chiefs’ staff


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The on and off story of Matt House leaving the University of Kentucky as defensive coordinator and joining the Chiefs as linebackers coach has reached a conclusion, with House poised to join the Chiefs after all, a source indicated.

The Chiefs had been close to hiring House last week but the deal stalled when the sides couldn’t agree on a buyout of House’s Kentucky contract.

The Courier Journal, citing terms of House’s contract, reported that he would have to pay Kentucky $150,000 to buy out the final year of his deal.

For a time it appeared House would stay at Kentucky but instead he has a deal that will bring him to Kansas City.

House will rejoin new Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. He was a defensive assistant for Spagnuolo, then the head coach of the St. Louis Rams, from 2009 through 2011.

The news was first reported by Kentucky Sports Radio.
