Posted Nov 17, 2020 5:01 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Monday that Head Coach Andy Reid has signed a contract extension with the club. Reid, in the midst of his eighth season with the team, has led the Chiefs to an 85-36 regular season record, six playoff appearances in seven seasons, back-to-back AFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl title.

Reid, entering his 22nd season as an NFL head coach, owns a career regular season record of 215-129-1 (.625). He's won 230 total games including the playoffs, the second-most victories among active NFL head coaches (Bill Belichick – 308), and is fifth all-time in wins among head coaches in NFL history. Reid added Super Bowl Champion to his resume in 2019 after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV.

Reid was hired as the club's 13th head coach in franchise history on January 7, 2013. He joined the Chiefs after 14 seasons as Head Coach/Executive Vice President of Football Operations of the Philadelphia Eagles where he compiled a 130-93-1 (.583) regular season record. In his career, he has earned 10 division titles, five NFC Championship appearances, two AFC Championship appearances and two Super Bowl appearances. Reid's teams have made the playoffs 15 times (15-14 record).

The Chiefs also announced on Monday that General Manager Brett Veach has signed a contract extension with the club. Veach, in his eighth season with the team and fourth as GM, has quickly become one of the most successful General Managers in the National Football League.

This offseason alone, Veach and his team orchestrated deals that will keep QB Patrick Mahomes, TE Travis Kelce and DT Chris Jones in a Chiefs uniform for the foreseeable future. Veach is responsible for acquiring key roster additions such as S Tyrann Mathieu, DE Frank Clark and WR Sammy Watkins, among others. At just 42 years old, Veach became the second-youngest GM to win a Super Bowl after the club defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV.
