The Kansas City Chiefs head coach confirmed on Sunday that he would be returning for his 26th NFL season in 2024 following his team’s Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

“I haven’t had time to think about it but yeah, sure,” Reid told reporters when asked whether he will coach the Chiefs next season.

Chiefs owner Clark Hunt also told NFL Network’s James Palmer after the game that he expects Reid to return in 2024 as the team aims to win its third straight championship.

It always seemed likely that Reid—who turns 66 in March—would return after he told reporters in January that he hadn’t even started contemplating retirement.

I haven’t even thought about that. I’m thinking about one thing,” he said. “I figured that would come up when you guys were asking these questions because I’m old—but, not that old.”

Hunt also told Chris Russo of Mad Dog Sports Radio in February, before the Super Bowl, that he expected Reid back next season.

We have that conversation each off-season and so, you know, that’s a conversation we’ll have at the end of the year,” he said. “But I’m not expecting him to retire. He loves what he’s doing. I know he’s energized by the team that he has. I know he loves coaching Patrick Mahomes. He’s got a generational quarterback. So, I look forward to having Andy as our head coach for many more years.”

Reid now has an impressive 258-144-1 record during the regular season in stints with the Philadelphia Eagles (1999-12) and the Chiefs (2013-present). He’s now fourth all-time in career wins, trailing only Don Shula (328), George Halas (318) and his contemporary, Bill Belichick (302).

He’s also led his teams to the postseason 19 times, the Super Bowl five times and has claimed three championships.

Reid has long been one of the game’s most innovative offensive minds, and his partnership over the years with players like Donovan McNabb, Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill has helped pushed them to the top of their craft. Kansas City will be happy to have him back.
