The Kansas City Chiefs announced Head Coach Andy Reid has signed a contract extension with the club.

Reid is entering his fifth season with the team. He’s led the Chiefs to a 43-21 record and three playoff appearances in four years.

“I’d like to thank Clark and the entire Hunt family for the opportunity to continue my coaching career here in Kansas City,” Reid said in a news release. “We’ve made quite a bit of progress over the last four seasons, but we are not done yet. We are going to continue to work towards our ultimate goal of winning championships. I’ve been blessed by the support of the community, our fans, the Hunt family and the entire Chiefs staff. I’m looking forward to the years ahead as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.”
