Head Coach of the Kansas City Chiefs
Andy Reid enters his 11th season at the helm of the Chiefs in 2023. He was hired as the club's 13th head coach in franchise history on January 7, 2013.
Entering his 25th season as an NFL head coach, Reid owns a 247-138-1 regular season record and adds a 22-16 postseason record, giving him 269 total wins, which ranks fifth in NFL history and second among active head coaches, trailing only New England Head Coach Bill Belichick. He added a second Super Bowl championship to his resume leading his 2022 squad to a 38-35 come-from-behind win in Super Bowl LVII against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Reid 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. Including his years as an assistant coach, Reid's teams have made the playoffs 24 times, and he has coached in six Super Bowls and 13 Championship Games (8 NFC, 5 AFC). He owns three NFL Coach of the Year titles.
Since his arrival in Kansas City, Reid's teams have made it to the playoffs nine out of ten seasons, including five consecutive AFC Championship Games (2018-22) and three Super Bowl appearances (2019, 2020, 2022). In ten seasons under Reid, the Chiefs have recorded nine 10-plus win seasons and a .722 (117-45) winning percentage, which is the top mark in franchise history for any coach in his first ten seasons leading the club.
Reid's 2021 squad recorded a 12-5 record in the first 17-game season, extended the franchise record to six-straight AFC West titles and secured the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Kansas City defeated Pittsburgh 42-21 in the Wild Card Round and Buffalo 42-36 in the Divisional Round en route to hosting an NFL-record fourth-consecutive AFC Championship Game at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs fell to Cincinnati 27-24. In Week 4, Reid recorded his 100th victory with Kansas City (postseason included), becoming the first head coach in NFL history to tally 100-plus wins with two franchises.
The 2020 Kansas City Chiefs tallied a franchise-record 14 wins (14-2 record), extended their franchise record to five-straight AFC West titles and secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the second time in three years. Kansas City defeated Cleveland 22-17 in the Divisional Round and Buffalo 38-24 in the third-consecutive AFC Championship Game at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas City hoisted the Lamar Hunt Trophy as AFC Champions for the second-straight year en route to its second-consecutive Super Bowl appearance.
In 2019, Reid's 12-4 Chiefs finished the regular season as AFC West Champs for a fourth-straight season and secured the No. 2 seed in the AFC. The club defeated Houston 51-31 in the Divisional Round and Tennessee 35-24 in the AFC Championship Game on it's way to returning to the Super Bowl for the third time in franchise history, marking the first Super Bowl appearance since the club won Super Bowl IV following the 1969 season. In Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Florida, Reid's Chiefs fell behind 20-10. Entering the fourth quarter, Mahomes rallied the offense, putting up 21-unanswered points to secure a 31-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Mahomes' performance earned Super Bowl MVP honors.
In 2018, Reid's team notched a 12-4 record and third-straight AFC West title. Mahomes became the first player in Chiefs history to be named NFL MVP. The club earned a No. 1 seed in the playoffs and defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-13 in the Divisional Round. The win marked Kansas City's first home playoff win since Jan. 8, 1994. The Chiefs hosted the first AFC Championship Game in franchise history, falling 37-31 in overtime to the eventual Super Bowl LIII Champion New England Patriots. Following the season, Reid was named Coach of the Year from the Maxwell Football Club for the fourth time in his career (2000, 2002, 2010, 2018). That season, following the club's Week 7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Reid became just the ninth head coach in NFL history to log 200 wins (regular and postseason).
In 2017, Reid led the Chiefs to a 10-6 record en route to the club's second-consecutive division title, the first time in franchise history the club had won the division in back-to-back years.
In 2016, Reid led the Chiefs to a 12-4 record and an AFC West title for the first time since 2010. The team finished a perfect 6-0 against its division foes. It was the club's best record since going 13-3 2003. The Chiefs earned a first-round bye in the NFL playoffs and hosted a home AFC Divisional Game.
In 2015, Reid's Chiefs rattled off 10 consecutive regular season wins to finish 11-5 and earn a playoff berth. The Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans 30-0 in an AFC Wild Card game in Houston, marking the team's first playoff win in 22 years. Reid and company advanced to the AFC Divisional Round. The club's 10 straight wins after starting just 1-5 marked the greatest turnaround in a single season in NFL history. Reid's efforts earned him AFC Coach of the Year honors.
In his first year with the club, Reid was named the 2013 AFC Coach of the Year by the 101 Committee after his squad recorded the greatest single-season turnaround in franchise history. Reid's team finished with an 11-5 record, a nine-game turnaround from the previous season and qualified for the postseason for the first time since 2010. Additionally, Reid mentored 10 players who earned Pro Bowl honors, more than any other team in the NFL that season.
One of the most successful coaches in professional sports, Reid utilizes a passionate, yet workmanlike approach as an NFL head coach. A former offensive lineman at BYU, Reid still lives and works with those humble principles he learned during his time in the trenches.
"Kansas City is just going to get better. This is just the start of it," Pro Football Hall of Fame Head Coach John Madden said upon Reid joining the Chiefs. "He has a plan. And he's very thorough, very smart. He's a good coach, always has been."
His vision, his dedication and his organizational skills have been impeccable during his coaching career. Reid joined Philadelphia as head coach in 1999 and remained in that role through the 2012 season, becoming one of just 11 first-time NFL head coaches to lead 12-or-more seasons with the same club. Reid assumed the additional role of Executive Vice President of Football Operations in 2001.
While compiling his 10-9 postseason record with Philadelphia, Reid led the Eagles franchise to one Super Bowl appearance, a game that saw Philadelphia fall by a mere field goal to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX following the 2004 season. Reid guided Philadelphia to nine playoff appearances (2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010) during his 14-year tenure in the City of Brotherly Love. During that time period, only Indianapolis (12) and New England (10) had more postseason appearances than the Eagles.
The Eagles captured their sixth NFC East division title under Reid in 2010. Along the way, Reid played a vital role in the rebirth of QB Michael Vick, who earned Comeback Player of the Year honors as well as a Pro Bowl berth. Reid, himself, earned Coach of the Year honors from the Maxwell Football Club.
In 2008, Reid became the 37th coach to reach the 100-win plateau and the 22nd to win 100 games with one franchise. He overcame a 5-5-1 start to reach the NFC Championship Game.
In 2006, the Eagles lost six of their first 11 games and two of their most explosive players in QB Donovan McNabb and DE Jevon Kearse, but Reid led a season-ending, five-game win streak to capture the NFC East division title.
The 2004 Eagles clinched the NFC East title with five games remaining in the regular season and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. Along the way, Reid passed Greasy Neale for the most wins in franchise history as the Eagles earned their first trip to the Super Bowl since 1980.
In 2003, Philadelphia overcame an 0-2 start and a slew of injuries to post its second consecutive 12-win season. A year earlier, Reid was the overwhelming choice as the NFL's Coach of the Year as the Eagles thrived without the services of McNabb to still capture home-field advantage in the playoffs.
After a 5-11 mark in his first season, Reid led the 2000 Eagles to the greatest turnaround in franchise history, finishing second in the NFC East at 11-5 and earning a trip to the NFC Divisional Playoffs. For his efforts, Reid was named the NFL's Coach of the Year by the Maxwell Football Club, The Sporting News, and Football Digest.
Throughout his time in the NFL, Reid has continuously evaluated what is best for the game of football, serving on the NFL Competition Committee's Coaches Subcommittee. The subcommittee is instrumental in providing feedback to the NFL Competition Committee for potential rule changes and ways to improve the game.
"I am a huge fan of Coach Reid," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. "He is a person I have tremendous respect for as a coach and family man. Andy has been very helpful to me as Commissioner. He has tremendous insight into our game, and we are fortunate to have him in the NFL."
Reid was originally introduced as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles on Jan. 11, 1999, after spending seven seasons as an assistant coach with the Green Bay Packers under Head Coach Mike Holmgren. During his seven years with the Packers, Reid served as the tight ends coach and assistant offensive line coach (1992-96) and as quarterbacks coach (1997-98). In his span with the Packers, the team reached the playoffs six times and represented the NFC twice in back-to-back Super Bowls, defeating New England in Super Bowl XXXI and falling to Denver in Super Bowl XXXII.
During his two-year stint as quarterbacks coach, Reid worked with Pro Football Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre. While tutoring Favre, Reid and the Packers won their second straight NFC title, and Favre garnered league MVP honors for the third-consecutive season.
Prior to joining the NFL ranks, Reid's final collegiate stop was in Columbia, Missouri, as he coached the offensive line at the University of Missouri (1989-91). Prior to his stint with the Tigers, Reid spent two years working with the offensive line at the University of Texas – El Paso, and before that, he held the same position with Northern Arizona. In 1983, Reid took the position of offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at San Francisco State, helping the Gators lead the nation in passing and total offense for three consecutive years (1983-85).
A tackle and guard at Brigham Young University from 1979-81, Reid entered the coaching ranks as a graduate assistant at BYU under Head Coach LaVell Edwards in 1982. It was in that time at BYU that Reid began his association with Holmgren, who served as the quarterbacks coach for the Cougars. While at BYU, Reid earned both a bachelor's degree in physical education and a master's degree in professional leadership in physical education and athletics. While playing for the Cougars, Reid was also a columnist for the Provo Daily Herald.
A native of Los Angeles, Reid prepped at John Marshall High School in Los Angeles and went on to go to Glendale (Calif.) Junior College before attending BYU. Reid has been inducted into the Marshall High School Athletic Hall of Fame, as well as the Glendale Junior College Hall of Fame.
