SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Kansas City Chiefs announced that head coach Andy Reid signed a contract extension with the organization.

Reid is in his eighth season as the head coach of the Chiefs. He has led the team to an 85-36 record in the regular season, along with six playoff appearances and their first Super Bowl in 50 years.

“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,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “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 is in his 22nd season as an NFL head coach. His record as a head coach in regular season games is 215-129-1. The former BYU alum has won 230 total games including the postseason, which is the second most among active head coaches, only behind Bill Belichick’s 308 victories.

“I’d like to thank Clark and the entire Hunt family for their support over the last eight years,” Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. “Aside from winning the Super Bowl, one of my favorite moments last season was being able to be a part of bringing the Lamar Hunt Trophy back to the family. I’m grateful for our players, my coaching staff, our support staff and our great fans. My family and I love living in Kansas City, and I look forward to continuing my career here.”

Reid was a tackle and guard at BYU from 1979-81. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant under LaVell Edwards in 1982.
