The specifics of Andy Reid’s contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs

According to Sportico, the Kansas City Chiefs have extended Andy Reid’s contract until 2029, agreeing to a five-year, $100 million deal. Reid’s tenure with the team, led by Patrick Mahomes, will continue until after Super Bowl LXIII.

With this new contract, Reid, who will be 71 years old at the conclusion of his contract, has become the highest-paid coach in American sports, earning an average of $20 million per year. This significant increase from the previous coach’s salary of $12.5 million per season was partly made possible by Bill Belichick’s departure from the New England Patriots, where he earned $25 million annually. The second-highest-paid coach in the NFL is Sean Payton of the Denver Broncos, with an average salary of $18 million per season.

Since joining Kansas City in 2013, Andy Reid has compiled an impressive record of 128-51 in the regular season and 16-7 in the playoffs, securing four American Conference championships and three Super Bowl victories.

Reid’s success places him among the elite coaches in NFL history. Currently, he ranks fourth on the all-time regular-season win list for NFL coaches, boasting 258 wins, trailing only Bill Belichick (302), George Halas (318), and Don Shula (328). In terms of playoff victories, the Kansas City Chiefs rank second with 26 wins, just behind Bill Belichick’s 31.

With this contract extension, Reid is provided with an opportunity to potentially retire as the winningest coach in NFL history.
