The Chiefs will introduce Dorsey during a news conference at 2pm on Monday.

Dorsey becomes the third member of GM Ted Thompson’s football management staff to leave Green Bay in the last two years.  Reggie McKenzie left for the general manager’s job in Oakland and John Schneider left to take the general manager’s job in Seattle.

The 52-year-old Dorsey played linebacker for the Packers from 1984 to 1989 before moving into the teams personnel department.

Dorsey worked with Chiefs new coach Andy Reid during the late 90′s while Reid was an assistant coach in Green Bay.
