Andy Reid has long been considered among the NFL’s most innovative offensive minds. When the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, the veteran leader won the first Super Bowl title of his 21-year head coaching career. Reid joined the Chiefs in 2013 after 14 seasons and one Super Bowl appearance with the Philadelphia Eagles. Since his arrival in Kansas City, Reid has led the franchise to seven consecutive winning seasons and six playoff appearances, including back-to-back AFC Championships.

After Sunday’s Super Bowl win in Miami, praise for the long-time head coach began pouring in from around the sports world and beyond. Among the notable names chiming in was Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.
