NFL Rumors: Andy Reid contract expected to reset market

After guiding the Kansas City Chiefs to becoming the ninth franchise in league history to win consecutive Super Bowls, there was speculation that head coach Andy Reid could ride off into the sunset and call it a career. However, not only has Reid shut down those rumors, he’s expressed interest in signing a contract extension.

Now, NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero has reported that the Chiefs and Reid are “expected to begin negotiations in the coming weeks on a new contract that NFL sources believe should soon make Reid the highest-paid coach in football.”

If/when a deal is finalized, it will be a well-deserved pay raise for arguably one of the best coaches ever, who has led the Chiefs to six straight AFC Championship appearances and three titles. In 11 seasons with Kansas City, Reid has a 128-51 regular season record, making him the winningest coach in franchise history.

Turning 66 in March, Reid is now the oldest head coach in the NFL following the offseason departures of future Hall of Famers Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll, but he has no intentions of following in their footsteps anytime soon considering the expectation that he will soon be resetting the coaching market.

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach is also “in line for a new deal,” per Rapoport.
