  • The Chiefs have hired former Packers defensive back Al Harris to coach their secondary and Mark DeLeone as a quality control coach and also retained assistant strength coach Brent Salazar.
    “We are happy to add Al and Mark to our staff,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. “Al’s playing experience over 15 years will bring a unique perspective for our players, and in Mark, we have a talented young coach. We’ve also retained Brent Salazar, who has done a nice job over the last six years here in Kansas City.”
    Harris will begin his first full season as an assistant coach. The two-time Pro Bowl defensive back played 15 seasons for the Eagles, Packers, Dolphins and Rams, and has ties to new Chiefs coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey.
    DeLeone spent last season working for the Jets, while Salazar will begin his seventh season as the assistant strength coach in Kansas City.
    They also announced Friday the signing of wide receiver Tyler Shoemaker.
    Shoemaker, an undrafted free agent in 2012, was released by Tampa Bay before training camp.
