KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are working to keep their Super Bowl-winning team intact, from key players to coaching staff.

The NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Monday that the team is finalizing contracts with head coach Andy Reid and general manager Brett Veach.

Reid and Veach, according to Pelissero, both are expected to have six-year contracts, which would keep them in Kansas City through 2025.

Veach, 42, joined the Chiefs in 2013 as an analyst in the scouting department. He was promoted to co-director of player personnel in 2015 and became Kansas City’s general manager in July 2017, replacing John Dorsey.

He became the youngest GM to construct a Super Bowl-winning roster earlier in 2020, when the Chiefs beat San Francisco in Super Bowl LIV.

Veach is widely credited as the driving force behind the Chiefs’ decision to trade up in the 2017 NFL Draft and draft quarterback Patrick Mahomes II from Texas Tech.

Reid, 62, is 207-128-1 as an NFL head coach, including 77-35 in seven seasons with the Chiefs.

Kansas City has finished each season under Reid with a winning record, including six seasons with at least 10 wins.

The Chiefs have won a franchise-record four consecutive AFC WEest titles under Reid’s watch.

Before coming to Kansas City, Reid spent 14 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He boats a 15-14 postseason record, including a 5-5 mark with the Chiefs.
