The Chiefs have mad yet another move to keep the band together in KC long-term, signing both Head Coach Andy Reid and GM Brett Veach to long-term extensions.
After extending some of their biggest stars on the field, the Chiefs are now keeping their biggest off-the-field assets in town through 2025.
Reid is entering his 22nd season as an NFL Head Coach, and eighth with the Chiefs. He is 77-35 in seven seasons with the Chiefs, and 5-5 in the playoffs culminating in February’s Super Bowl LIV victory, the first in his illustrious career.
Reid ranks sixth all-time in coaching wins, with 222 total, including playoffs, and that number will only increase as the Chiefs appear to be an annual contender for years to come.
Veach came with Reid to Kansas City in 2013 and worked his way up to General Manager. He has been the team’s GM since 2017 and was a key part of bringing Patrick Mahomes to the Kingdom a couple of months prior to him becoming GM. He has built a roster capable of long-term success, and both him and Reid have their sights set on another Lombardi (or even more).
The Chiefs have now completed one of the best offseasons in recent memories, signing key stars to long-term deals (Mahomes, Kelce, Jones), bringing back key contributors from the 2019 championship team (Watkins, Breeland, Pennel), and now capping it all by rewarding the men who have made it happen on and off the field in Reid and Veach.
While this offseason has been one to remember, the 2020 regular season is now just 10 days away, with the team shifting focus towards the Texans. Kickoff is September 10.
