In 2020, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes signed a 10-year, $503 million extension with Kansas City. After inking the deal, Mahomes said that Reid’s future plans played “a huge part” in his decision to sign an extension with the Chiefs.
At the time, the two-time NFL MVP said that he spoke with Reid and the head coach did not plan to retire “anytime soon.”
“Yeah I talked to him I think before I signed the deal,” Mahomes said. “He had no thoughts on retiring anytime soon. I mean obviously, that’s a huge part in it.”
Reid owns a head coaching record of 268–154–1, including 21-16 in the postseason.
