Chiefs Kingdom, Andy Reid will remain with the Kansas City Chiefs for at least another five years. On Monday, he extended his contract with the franchise until 2029. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network broke the news.

Now he has officially become the highest paid coach in the NFL. Well deserved, by the way.

The organisation’s president Mark Donovan and general manager Brett Veach also agreed new contracts with the team. Veach continues until 2029 along with the HC.

The trio has been working together since 2017 – and look at all they’ve achieved. From drafting Patrick Mahomes to turning the Chiefs into a dominant, three-time Super Bowl-winning team over seven years, they’ve established themselves as important people in KC’s history.

Andy Reid describes KC as home for him and his family
After the renewal was announced, Reid gave an official and very emotional statement about his family on and off the field.

“I’m incredibly grateful to Clark [Hunt] and the entire Hunt family for giving me the opportunity to lead this historic franchise,” he started.

“Over the last 11 years, Tammy and I have enjoyed calling Kansas City our home. The community has embraced us, we’ve watched our family grow, including having all 12 grandkids during our time here.”

“On the field, there have been so many people that have contributed to our success and Super Bowls, and I’m grateful to the players, coaches and staff that have all invested their time into this process. I’d also like to thank my agent, Bob LaMonte. Chiefs Kingdom is a special place and I’m blessed to have the opportunity to be here.”

KC’s fans have a brilliant mind at the wheel, and he’s got the spirit to win the three-peat.

Five years after he retires, Reid will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He has 258 regular season wins, ranking behind Don Shula (328), George Halas (318) and Bill Belichick (302). In the playoffs he recorded 26 wins, putting him five wins behind Bill Belichick.
