The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday that they’ve signed HC Andy Reid to a contract extension.
- According to Tom Pelissero, Reid receives a four-year extension from the Chiefs that keeps him under team control through the 2021 season.
“My family and I have been very pleased by the success the franchise has sustained over the last four seasons under Coach Reid,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “He has already established himself as one of the best coaches in the league, and he is well on his way to solidifying a place among the all-time greats. We are proud to have him leading our football team, and I look forward to working with him to bring a championship to Chiefs Kingdom.”
“I’d like to thank Clark and the entire Hunt family for the opportunity to continue my coaching career here in Kansas City,” Reid said. “We’ve made quite a bit of progress over the last four seasons, but we are not done yet. We are going to continue to work towards our ultimate goal of winning championships. I’ve been blessed by the support of the community, our fans, the Hunt family and the entire Chiefs staff. I’m looking forward to the years ahead as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.”
Reid, 59, is in his fifth season with the Chiefs. He began his coaching career with the Eagles in 1999 and spent 14 seasons in Philadelphia before he was fired in 2012.
The Chiefs hired him as their head coach soon after and he’s spent the past four season in Kansas City.
Since joining the Chiefs in 2013, Reid has led them to a record of 43-21 (67.2 percent), which includes three playoff appearances.
