Chiefs extend deals of Andy Reid, GM, president

Back-to-back Super Bowl championships and three titles in a five-year span prompted the Kansas City Chiefs to reward their top brass with contract extensions on Monday.

Coach Andy Reid, general manager Brett Veach and club president Mark Donovan received what the club termed as long-term deals, though specifics weren’t announced.

According to, Reid got a new pact that runs through 2029 and makes him the league’s highest-paid coach.

“Mark, Brett and Andy have achieved historic success together, and we are thrilled that they will continue in their roles for many years to come,” Chiefs chairman/CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement. “Individually, Mark, Brett and Andy each represent the best in the National Football League at their respective positions, and together, they make up one of the finest leadership teams in all of professional sports.

“They have been tremendous leaders for this organization on and off the field, and we look forward to their continued success in the years ahead.”

Reid, 66, has been on the job since 2013, compiling a 128-51 regular-season record and a 16-7 playoff mark in Kansas City. He has led the Chiefs to the playoffs in all but one of his 11 seasons.

Reid previously was the head coach in Philadelphia from 1999-2012, guiding the Eagles to the Super Bowl after the 2004 season and to four other appearances in the NFC Championship Game.

His overall regular-season record as a head coach is 258-144-1, and he is 26-16 in the postseason. Reid is the active NFL leader in coaching wins, ranking fourth all time behind Don Shula (328), George Halas (318) and Bill Belichick (302). Belichick leads the postseason coaching-wins list with 31, with Reid in second.

Veach, 46, took over as the Chiefs’ GM in 2017 after four years in the team’s front office. He previously was on the Eagles’ staff from 2004-12.

Donovan, 58, also came to Kansas City after a stint in the Eagles’ front office from 2003-09. He became the Chiefs’ president in January 2011.
