Andy Reid Addresses Potential Retirement As Chiefs Prepare for Super Bowl

Throughout football, 2024 has been The Year of the Retirement (or at least The Year of Stepping Away).

In a two-day span in January, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, Alabama coach Nick Saban and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick all left their posts. That left Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid—in his 25th year leading an NFL team—as one of the game's last undisputed elder statesmen.

Asked about the prospect of retirement Tuesday ahead of Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, Reid deflected, referring to an anecdote he'd heard from his parents growing up.

"My mom and dad told me this when they were working," Reid said. "They said, 'You'll know when it's time,' and I'm ready to go right now. Let’s go. ... Somewhere you're going to know when it's time. Today's not the day.''

"I love being part of the organization,'' Reid told reporters. "It's a great organization. And then we've won some games, but we've got to keep going. We've got to keep after this thing.''
