This appears to be the official announcement for the six-year extensions for Reid and Veach that were reported earlier this year.
Both extensions are for six years and will keep the duo in Kansas City through the 2025 season.
“Brett has had a remarkable run as our General Manager over the past four years, and he certainly deserves this recognition,” Hunt said. “His creativity, along with personal connection to our players and staff, has helped build a championship roster. He has had an impressive start to his career as a GM, and I know he’ll continue his aggressive approach that has consistently improved the talent of the Chiefs.”
“Over the last eight seasons here in Kansas City we’ve had the opportunity to witness one of the greatest head coaches of all time lead our franchise to its first Super Bowl title in 50 years,” Hunt said in a separate statement on Reid. “He’s a hall of fame head coach, but more importantly, an outstanding person who has really changed our team culture. I’d like to congratulate Andy and his family on this well-deserved extension. It is our hope that he can finish his legendary career right here in Kansas City.”
Reid, 62, is in his eighth 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 last seven seasons in Kansas City.
Since taking over as Chiefs head coach back in 2013, Reid has led the team to a record of 138-94-1 (59.2 percent), which includes six trips to the postseason in seven years and a Super Bowl Championship in 2019.
Veach, 42, began working in the NFL when he interned for the Eagles while Reid was still the team’s head coach. After Reid was fired in Philadelphia, he brought Veach with him to the Chiefs where he served as their pro and college personnel analyst before being promoted to co-director of player personnel in May of 2015.
Kansas City fired John Dorsey back in 2017 and later promoted Veach as their GM.
During Veach’s three years as GM, the Chiefs have posted a record of 42-15 (73.6 percent), which includes three trips to the playoffs and a Super Bowl title last year.
