The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly reached a decision regarding Andy Reid’s contract ahead of Super Bowl 58.
Despite the imminent climax of the NFL season, the Chiefs have apparently settled on their stance regarding Reid’s contract as they prepare to face the San Francisco 49ers.
According to CBS Sports, Reid is poised to receive both a salary increase and a contract extension, regardless of the outcome of Super Bowl 58 on Sunday.
“Sources tell CBS Sports an extension is more likely than retirement heading into Reid’s fifth Super Bowl appearance. Reid, one of the winningest coaches of all time, is in line to get a raise almost no matter the outcome of Sunday night’s game. He signed a six-year extension after his first Super Bowl victory four years ago, and he has two years left on his current deal,” reported Jonathan Jones.
“Multiple sources have noted how underpaid Reid is. He makes close to $12 million per year, which ranks him around 10th in the league among all head coaches. A win Sunday would give him his third Lombardi when the other 31 active head coaches have a combined six.”
The highly anticipated matchup between the Chiefs and the 49ers is set to commence at 6:30 p.m. E.T. on Sunday, with the game being broadcast on CBS.
