KANSAS CITY, MO (FOOTBALLKC) -

The Kansas City Chiefs signed Head Coach Andy Reid to a contract extension with the club Thursday afternoon.

The 2017-18 NFL season will be Reid’s 19th season as an NFL head coach and fifth in Kansas City.

The terms of the contract extension are unknown at this time.

Since joining the Chiefs organization, Reid has led the Chiefs to a 43-21 record, three playoff appearances and one playoff win. Reid has never had a regular season record below .500 since arriving in Kansas City.

Reid’s 184 career wins, including the playoffs, is the second-most victories among current NFL head coaches. It also places him 10th all-time among head coaches in NFL history.

“I’d like to thank Clark and the entire Hunt family for the opportunity to continue my coaching career here in Kansas City,” Reid said in a statement. “We’ve made quite a bit of progress over the last four seasons, but we are not done yet. We are going to continue to work towards our ultimate goal of winning championships. I’ve been blessed by the support of the community, our fans, the Hunt family and the entire Chiefs staff. I’m looking forward to the years ahead as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.”

Reid and the Chiefs are coming off their best season, where the team finished 12-4, won the AFC West for the first time since 2010, swept their division opponents and advanced to the AFC divisional playoff round.

This comes a year after Reid helped deliver the team’s first playoff win since the 1993 season. The Chiefs have also won 22 of their last 26 regular season games, a better record than any other NFL team in that span.

Reid coached for 14 years in Philadelphia, where he took the Eagles to five conference championship games and one Super Bowl before coming to Kansas City.
