After raising the Lombardi Trophy for the third time in five seasons, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy said Reid isn’t going anywhere.

The three-time Super Bowl-winning coach, who has served as Kansas City’s head coach since 2013, addressed retirement rumors in a postgame news conference after the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

“Yeah,” he said, when asked if he would be returning to the Chiefs next season. “I haven’t had time to think about it, but yeah. Sure.”

Reid also told NFL Network correspondent Maurice Jones-Drew on NFL GameDay that he planned to return.

“If you’re coming, I’m coming,” Reid told Jones-Drew, adding, “You’ll have to bring the hamburgers.”

At age 65, and with Bill Belichick (71) and Pete Carroll (72) currently not in head-coaching roles, Reid is the oldest coach in the NFL. Reid, who has served as an NFL head coach since 1999, dispelled rumors that he would retire after this season, especially in the lead-up to the Super Bowl.

Reid jokingly blamed the recent string of questions about his retirement on Belichick and Carroll, who last month parted ways with the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, respectively.

“I’m mad at Belichick and Pete because now I get asked all those questions,” Reid quipped in the news conference.

By staying, Reid will extend the dynasty he has created with quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Since the Chiefs drafted Mahomes 10th overall in 2017, the quarterback-head coach duo has led Kansas City to four Super Bowl appearances and three wins.

Reid seemed less inclined to call the Chiefs’ recent success a “dynasty.”

“I got asked so many times, ‘Is (this) a dynasty?'” Reid said in the news conference. “I don’t know if it’s a dynasty, you guys are the ones with a thesaurus.”

But he added that he’s proud of his team, even with the “ups and downs of the season,” saying Mahomes was one of the team’s “great leaders.”

“Back-to-back is rare for this football team in this organization,” Reid said in the postgame news conference. “It all kind of came together during the playoffs and worked out well.”

Mahomes signed a 10-year contract with the Chiefs in 2020, and restructured it last year to give the quarterback a historic $210.6 million from 2023-26. The team and Mahomes will revisit the deal after the 2026 season.

According to CBS, the Chiefs are likely to give Reid a contract extension in the offseason. Despite his recent success, Reid is only the 10th-highest-paid coach in the league, making around $12 million per year, per CBS.

Now, with a third Super Bowl victory under his belt, Reid is ready to come back for more.
