Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs are riding high. Reid finally got the monkey off his back winning his first Super Bowl and has a superstar quarterback under contract for the next 12 years. Does life get any better than that? To no one’s surprise, Reid has no plans to leave the game anytime soon.
Reid recently said he is open to coaching past his 70’s:
Reid, 62, is currently in his 22nd season as a head coach in the NFL. 14 of those years were spent in Philadelphia on the sidelines for the Eagles. Since arriving in KC, all Big Red has done is win. The Chiefs have made the postseason in 6 of 7 years with Reid leading the charge. Reid is also responsible for 5 of the 8 total playoff wins in franchise history since the NFL and AFL merger.
It’s no surprise that Reid wants to continue coaching. This Chiefs offense is probably the most exciting unit in the league. Reid, of course, has a hell of a lot to do with it. Reid’s always been one of the brightest play callers in the history of the NFL. Reid has always been a thorn in the side of Bill Belichick. This time, he has Pat Mahomes on his side for the foreseeable future.
Reid is currently under contract through the 2021 season. Now that Mahomes has gotten his extension, it’s hard to imagine that the Reid extension isn’t next on the to do list. Reid is currently 7th all-time in the history of the NFL in wins and will just continue to climb the leader board. He’s not retiring anytime soon.
