Biography

Greg Lewis enters his first season as a wide receivers coach with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017. This season marks his third year in the NFL, with prior stops as a wide receivers coach in Philadelphia (2016) and as an offensive assistant in New Orleans (2015).

Lewis spent the 2016 season in Philadelphia guiding a young receiving core. The Lewis-led group of Eagles wideouts produced 1,839 receiving yards on 170 receptions (10.8 yards per catch) with eight touchdowns.

Prior to joining the Eagles, Lewis served as an offensive assistant in New Orleans, which was his first full-time coaching role in the National Football League. The 2015 Saints, led by quarterback Drew Brees, put together a league-leading 460 completions for 5,205 passing yards.

Prior to coaching stints in the National Football League, Lewis spent three seasons coaching in the collegiate ranks, spending time with the University of Pittsburgh (2014), San Jose State (2013) and the University of San Diego (2012).

Working with the wide receivers at Pittsburgh in 2014, Lewis tutored wide receiver Tyler Boyd, a second-round pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2016 NFL Draft. Boyd ranked second in the ACC with 1,261 yards in 2014, and left the Panthers as the school's all-time leading receiver in receptions (254), receiving yards (3,361) and finished second in all-purpose yards (5,243), earning a first-team AII-ACC nod as a wide receiver.

In his one season coaching at San Jose State, senior Chandler Jones and freshman Tyler Winston, were All-Mountain West Conference honorees. Jones was a first-team selection with 79 receptions for 1,356 yards and a single-season school-record 15 touchdown catches. Jones

also established a new University record for career TD receptions with 29. Despite starting only eight games, Winston was named the Mountain West Freshman of the Year. He finished 2013 with 58 receptions for 858 yards and five touchdowns. Winston led all Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) freshmen with four games of 100 or more receiving yards.

Under Lewis' direction, four Spartans wide receivers finished the 2013 season with at least 100 career receptions. Jones and team captain Noel Grigsby completed their college careers with 248 and 237 receptions, respectively.

Lewis began his coaching career in 2012 as a wide receivers coach at the University of San Diego. The Lewis-led group of wideouts totaled 2,287 yards on 182 receptions (12.6 yards per catch) with 21 touchdowns.

Prior to coaching, Lewis enjoyed an eight-year playing career in the National Football League. Undrafted out of the University of Illinois, then-head coach Andy Reid first signed Lewis in Philadelphia where he appeared in 90 games (23 starts), logging 127 catches for 1,699 yards (13.3 yards per catch) and seven touchdowns. His time with the Eagles was highlighted by a fourth-quarter touchdown pass in Super Bowl XXXIX.

The Chicago, Illinois, native finished his pro career in Minnesota, where he spent two seasons and appeared in 26 games (six starts), tallying 293 yards on 25 catches (11.7 yards per catch) with one touchdown. His most notable achievement in Minnesota came on one of the most dramatic finishes in Vikings history, when he made a tightrope catch in the back of the end zone with two seconds left to lift Minnesota past the San Francisco 49ers, 27-24. Lewis would go on to share an ESPY Award for ‘Best Play’ with then-Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.

A standout at the University of Illinois, Lewis appeared in 44 games, logging 103 reception for 1,456 yards (14.1 yards per catch) and 12 touchdowns.
