Brett Veach, the general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, firmly believes that Andy Reid will continue to serve as the team’s head coach in 2024, regardless of the outcome of Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Addressing rumors of Reid’s potential retirement, Veach expressed confidence in Reid’s commitment to the organization, stating that he would be shocked if Reid were to step down.
Veach emphasized that he communicates with Reid daily and has not heard anything to suggest otherwise.
“That is not something that I’ve heard directly,” Veach said of rumors Reid may retire, per Audacy’s 610 Sports Radio (15:25 mark). “I don’t buy one bit of that, for what it’s worth. Maybe I don’t know anything, but I would be shocked more than anybody—and I talk to coach every day.”
Despite a recent trend of veteran coaches retiring or parting ways with their teams, Reid appears poised to remain a prominent figure in the coaching profession.
Reid himself has indicated that he is not considering retirement, citing advice from his parents about knowing when it’s time to step away. With a career spanning multiple decades, Reid’s coaching journey began with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he enjoyed considerable success before joining the Chiefs in 2013.
“Am I retiring? Listen, my mom and dad told me this when they were working. They said you’ll know when it’s time,” Reid told reporters Monday. “And I’m ready to go right now. Let’s go.
“That’s what they would tell me when I was young. I was an inquisitive kid, and so that’s the way I look. Somewhere, you’re going to know when it’s time. Today’s not the day.”
Since joining the Chiefs, Reid has led the team to remarkable achievements, including multiple playoff appearances and Super Bowl victories. A win in Sunday’s Super Bowl would mark Reid’s third championship and further solidify the Chiefs’ status as a modern NFL dynasty.
With star quarterback Patrick Mahomes leading the charge, Reid appears determined to continue pursuing success and additional Super Bowl titles in the seasons to come.
