Nick Sirianni begins his fourth season in Kansas City and his first as the Chiefs wide receivers coach after spending the last three seasons as the club’s offensive quality control coach.

Over the past two years, he’s worked closely with the Chiefs quarterbacks and wide receivers as QB Matt Cassel and WR Dwayne Bowe both earned their first Pro Bowl invitations in 2010. In 2011, he worked alongside quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn and helped the offensive staff with gameplanning, playbooks and self-scouting.

In 2011, the Chiefs were one of two teams in the NFL to have three different starting quarterbacks open an eventual victory for the team. In addition, WR Dwayne Bowe registered his second consecutive 1,000-plus yard receiving season and the third of his career with Sirianni’s assistance.

In his initial campaign with the Chiefs, he worked with the club’s quarterbacks and wide receivers during practice and performed a variety of functions on game day. Sirianni joined the Chiefs after a three-year stint as the wide receivers coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

In 2008, Sirianni helped senior WR Ken Witter produce 66 receptions for 773 yards with seven TDs at IUP. Under Sirianni’s direction, Witter recorded two of the top three seasonal totals for receptions in school history. In addition to his 66 catches in 2008, Witter had 67 receptions the previous season.

Prior to joining the Crimson Hawks, Sirianni spent two seasons as the defensive backs coach at Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio. He helped the Purple Raiders win the NCAA Division III National Championship in 2005.

Sirianni was a three-year starter as a wide receiver at Mount Union. He was part of the Purple Raiders squad that claimed back-to-back NCAA Division III National Championships in 2001-02. He concluded his collegiate career with 68 receptions for 1,332 yards and 17 touchdowns. He earned All-Ohio Athletic Conference honors as a senior after posting a career-high 13 TD catches.

Sirianni was a prep standout at Southwestern Central High School in Jamestown, N.Y. He hails from a football family. His brother, Jay, is the head coach at their high school alma mater, which claimed the 2008 and 2009 New York State Class C Championships and were runners up in 2011. Meanwhile, his brother, Mike, is the head coach at Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pa. Mike owns a 91-22 record entering 2012. His winning percentage (.805) ranks him sixth among all active NCAA football coaches (FBS, FCS, Div. II or Div. III) with at least five years of experience.
