Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid could retire right now and would be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in five years. But after winning his second Super Bowl title with the Chiefs, Big Red says he’s not done coaching just yet.

“I think I’m going to hang around,” Reid said when asked by NFL Media if he would be retiring after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII.

NFL Insider Jay Glazer of FOX said prior to the game that Reid told him “I’ll have a decision I’ll need to make” in regards to his coaching future once the Super Bowl was over.

It seems that Big Red made his decision rather quickly postgame.

Chiefs Defeat Eagles in Super Bowl LVII

The Chiefs defeated the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII, marking the organization’s second Super Bowl title in four seasons, officially bringing “dynasty” chatter to Kansas City.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named the Super Bowl LVII MVP. He completed 21-of-27 pass attempts for 182 passing yards and 3 touchdowns in the Super Bowl. He also ran the football 6 times for 44 yards.

Mahomes protected the football and used his legs — despite dealing with a high-ankle sprain — in key moments to make big plays. Take his 26-yard run late in the fourth quarter for example, which set the Chiefs up for a field goal to take a 38-35 lead late in the fourth quarter.

The leading receiver for Kansas City was tight end Travis Kelce, who caught 6 passes on 6 targets for 81 yards and scored the Chiefs’ first touchdown of the evening. Rookie running back Isiah Pacheco led the way in the backfield, carrying the ball 15 times for 76 yards and 1 touchdown.

The Chiefs’ defense struggled to contain Philadelphia’s high-flying offense. But the unit did make key plays throughout the game to help squeeze out the victory. Take for example when Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts fumbled the football early in the second quarter and Kansas City linebacker Nick Bolton recovered the football and scored a touchdown.

Special teams also showed up for the Chiefs, like Harrison Butker kicking the game-winning field goal, and Kadarius Toney setting that kick up with a 65-yard punt return, which is a Super Bowl record.
