Former Eagles coach
As the former head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, Andy Reid is no stranger to football fans in Kansas City. After being relieved of his duties with the Eagles following the 2012 season, Reid joined the Kansas City Chiefs as their head coach in 2013. He led the team to a 9-7 record and a playoff berth in his first season, and then guided them to a record-setting 12-4 campaign and an AFC West division title in 2014. The Chiefs lost to the New England Patriots in the 2014 AFC Championship Game, but they rebounded to win the division again in 2015 with an 11-5 record. They made it back to the AFC Championship Game in 2016, but once again fell to the Patriots.
Led the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games
From 1999 to 2012, Reid led the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games, including four consecutive appearances from 2001-2004, and was head coach of the team that represented the NFC in Super Bowl XXXIX. In 21 seasons as an NFL head coach, he has compiled a 170-131-1 (.564) record, including a 20-12 mark in the playoffs.

Helped the Chiefs to an AFC West title
The Chiefs scored the most points in the AFC West and allowed the second-fewest, en route to an 11-5 record and their first division title since 2010. In large part, that was thanks to Alex Smith, who had his best season as a Chief.
