Eagles' Sirianni: 'Chip' on shoulder after not being retained by Andy Reid

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles coach Nick Sirianni was let go by Andy Reid when Reid took over as head coach of the Chiefs following the 2012 season. And while Sirianni - the Chiefs wide receivers coach at the time - said he was appreciative of how Reid handled the situation, he acknowledged that not being retained as a part of Reid's staff was a motivating force for him.

"Do you always have this little chip on your shoulder? Sure, yeah, you do," he said. "But that's who I am as a coach and as a person - I want to make sure I'm working my butt off to get as good as I possibly can.
