Chiefs make it official with Andy Reid
Reid, who enters his 22nd NFL season in 2013, joins the Chiefs after a 14-year stint as the head coach and executive vice president of football operations for the Philadelphia Eagles.
"My family and I are very excited to join the Chiefs organization and the Kansas City community," Reid said. "I want to thank the Hunt family for allowing me the opportunity to lead this storied franchise. The Chiefs have always had a passionate fan base and I'm looking forward to Sundays at Arrowhead Stadium. We've got a lot of work to do to get ready for next season, and we are going to get started immediately." 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.
Reid boasts a career record of 130-93-1 (.583) in the regular season. He also owns a 10-9 postseason record. His 140 wins in regular season and postseason play rank 22nd in NFL history. Among active head coaches through Week 17 of the 2012 season, Reid ranks fifth in regular season and playoff wins, trailing only Bill Belichick (204), Mike Shanahan (175), Tom Coughlin (163) and Jeff Fisher (154). While compiling his 10-9 postseason record, 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 following the 2004 season. He has earned NFL Coach of the Year accolades on three occasions.
