Chiefs head coach Andy Reid just dropped a bombshell announcement on his potential retirement heading into Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Well, this is absolutely not what Kansas City Chiefs fans wanted to hear today. Head coach Andy Reid spoke with Fox Sports reporter Jay Glazer prior to Sunday’s matchup between the Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles and floated the possibility of retiring after this Super Bowl.

Reid told Glazer that he’s “not getting any younger” and that he would have an important decision to make after the game.

It’s a jaw-dropping revelation for Chiefs fans everywhere who believed Reid and Patrick Mahomes would stay together for the long haul. Reid has gotten the Chiefs to the Super Bowl in three of the last four years and has arguably become as iconic and endearing as Mahomes has in Kansas City.

Will Big Red really call it quits after this season? Here’s exactly what he told Glazer.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid leaves door wide open on potential retirement in 2023

The 64-year-old Reid has been in the league since the 1990s and accumulated a legendary record during his time in Philadelphia and Kansas City. He is currently 247-138-1 all-time, and his teams have advanced to the conference championships a whopping 10 different times.

Reid’s resume already cements him as one of the greatest coaches of all time, and it’s not hard to see why his potential retirement would serve as a monumental loss to the Chiefs.

Ever since Reid took over in Kansas City in 2013, the Chiefs have missed the playoffs once, won an incredible 72.2 percent of their games, and finally tasted glory when they won the Super Bowl in 2019.

The Chiefs are on track to becoming a legitimate NFL dynasty thanks to their stable coach and quarterback foundation, and seeing Reid hang up his hat in 2023 would break any fan’s heart.

This is all, of course, mere speculation for now. Reid only briefly touched upon the topic of retirement in his pre-game interview, and there’s no telling what’s going through his mind as he prepares his team for the biggest game of the year.
