SALT LAKE CITY – Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders praised Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid after the reigning NFL champions beat the Baltimore Ravens to reach Super Bowl LVIII.
Coach Prime praises Andy Reid
The Chiefs upset the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game in Baltimore, Maryland on Sunday, January 28.
Reid led the Chiefs to a 17-10 victory over the No. 1 seed Ravens.
Shortly after the game, Sanders applauded the former BYU offensive lineman and graduate assistant on social media.
“Andy Reid is the man! I love him as a man, a coach and a friend. He is “COACH-HIM,” the Colorado Buffaloes head coach posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Sanders and Reid are both two-time Super Bowl champions. Coach Prime won a pair of rings as a player for the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys. Reid led the Chiefs to their first title in 50 years in 2020. Kansas City also won the Super Bowl last season.
The Colorado coach never played for Reid but is clearly a fan of him. Before retiring from the league, Sanders played against Reid coached teams in three of his final four seasons as a player.
Sanders recently completed his first season as the Buffaloes’ head coach.
Super Bowl LVIII
Super Bowl LVIII will be a rematch of Super Bowl LIV from 2020 when the Chiefs rallied to defeat the 49ers.
During the regular season, the Chiefs posted an 11-6 record. Kansas City’s path to the Super Bowl includes postseason wins over the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, and Ravens.

Super Bowl LVIII will be played at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Raiders, in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday, February 11. The game will start at 4:30 p.m. (MT) and will be televised on CBS.
About Andy Reid
