The exact details haven’t been released but according to a tweet from Tom Pelissero, Andy Reid’s new contract will place him among the highest paid coaches in the NFL. The new contract will keep Reid in Kansas City through 2025. So just how much will Coach Reid be making?
A report on NFL coaching salaries from CBS Sports in January of this year had Bill Belichick leading the pack at $12 million and Pete Carroll just behind at $11 million. Coach Reid was tied for 8th on the list at $8 million.
Nobody is more deserving than Coach Reid. Congrats Coach! LETS GO CHIEFS!!!!

Did you know that Kansas is home to one of the bird watching hot spots of the country from August-October? The Quivira National Wildlife Refuge is getting ready to fill up with thousands of migrating birds.

At a time when everyone seems concerned with getting the biggest contract possible, these guys are taking cuts to be in Kansas City. It’s just one more reason to love the Kansas City Chiefs.
