Andy Reid Comments
Here is what the head coach had to say about coming back in 2024:
Honestly, I haven’t even thought about it, but I get asked it. I mean, I’m still kind of in awe of the game and what went on there, so I really haven’t thought why or what or anything else. But people keep asking me, and I keep saying, ‘Why didn’t [Bill] Belichick and Pete [Carroll] retire?’ Ask those old guys those questions.
But I’m the old guy now, so I guess I’m gonna be asked that. And I really haven’t gotten there. I haven’t really thought about it.
Kansas City Chiefs Going For Three In A Row
According to Reid, it seems that he has not even thought about retiring after the 2023 season and seems to be motivated to keep winning championships with Kansas City. Speculation of his retirement led to a huge build-up to the Super Bowl, and the head coach was asked several times by reporters during the media days. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt even said after the victory on Sunday that he expected Reid to come back all along, and now, the legendary coach has finally confirmed that he will indeed be coming back again in 2024.
Do you think Reid will win his third Super Bowl in a row, and if he does, will he start to consider his retirement?
