KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs defensive line coach Brendan Daly spent five seasons with the New England Patriots.
He went to four Super Bowls during that span, including three in a row from 2016 to 2018.
After joining Andy Reid's staff in Kansas City for the 2019 season, Daly is set to coach in his fifth consecutive Super Bowl, an accomplishment that sometimes feels like a dream.
“I kind of pinch myself on a regular basis and am thankful for the opportunity to be coaching football at this time of year," Daly said. "There’s not many people who get to do it. It’s a fun game to be a part of. Every one of them is unique. It does not get old. I can promise you that."
Daly helped the Patriots win Super Bowls during the 2014, 2016 and 2018 seasons before adding a fourth ring last season, his first with the Chiefs.
He admits it wasn't an easy decision to leave the dynasty in New England, but it paid off joining what could be another dynasty in Kansas City.
“My time in New England was a fantastic five years," Daly said. "I really enjoyed the people there — both fans and the people in the organization and the community. It was a tremendous learning experience for me from a football standpoint. Obviously, we had a tremendous amount of success on the field, which was fantastic to be able to experience."
