Keith Kidd, a long-time pro personnel director in the NFL and son of legendary Eastern Kentucky University football coach Roy Kidd, has joined the current EKU football staff as the Director of Football Relations.
Kidd worked 18 years in the NFL with four teams – the Arizona Cardinals (1991-99), Cleveland Browns (1999-2002), New England Patriots (2002-05) and Denver Broncos (2009-13). He also spent three seasons as an NFL analyst for ESPN’s scouting organization, Scouts Inc., and wrote columns for ESPN.com.
In his most recent stop, Kidd was the director of pro personnel for the Broncos. He began his professional career as a graduate assistant at EKU in 1987 and moved on to Arizona State University (1989-91) as a graduate assistant coach under former EKU quarterback Larry Marmie.
Kidd says he’s returning to Richmond for his family. He describes his role with the team as “constantly evolving,” but says he will serve “as a conduit for all recruiting information that comes to the department.”
