Update: After winning Super Bowl 57 against the Eagles, Andy Reid told NFL Network when asked about his future plans, “I think I’m going to hang around.” So there you have it, Reid will give it another year at least.
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, age 64, told Jay Glazer on Sunday ahead of the Super Bowl that “I have a decision I have to make after this game” on retiring. Reid has been the head coach of the Chiefs since 2013 and has led them to a Super Bowl win. Today’s game will mark the Chiefs’ third Super Bowl berth since Reid took over as head coach.

Per Glazer’s conversation with Reid, the coach said that “the biggest difference for this Super Bowl for me and the years past is that i’m trying to enjoy these...I’m trying to enjoy every moment this week, which I really didn’t do in the past. I’m not getting any younger.”
Before joining the Chiefs, Reid was the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, today’s opponents, from 1999 to 2012. He spent much of the 1990s with the Green Bay Packers, and was in the college football scene before that. Reid is 117-45 as the head coach of Kansas City.
