There will be many awards to come for the Kansas City Chiefs as awards season continues at the end of the season. Up first is an award from the 101 Awards, which will be celebrated on March 1 here in Kansas City.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid is AFC coach of year as selected by KC's committee of 101— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) January 15, 2014
Andy Reid as the coach of the year is an absolute no-brainer to me, especially if you break it up by AFC and NFC. His biggest competitor this season seems to be Ron Rivera, who did a terrific job leading the Panthers to the Divisional round of the playoffs. Reid took the Chiefs from the NFL's worst team to the NFL's best start with a 9-0 record. The Chiefs went from 2-14 to 11-5 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
The 101 Awards come from the votes of 101 sportswriters and broadcasters. Perhaps this is a hint of what's to come for the Associated Press NFL coach of the year award, which will be announced on Super Bowl weekend.
Here are previous Chiefs coaches to win the AFC's coach of the year from the 101 Awards:
1969: Hank Stram
1995: Marty Schottenheimer
1997: Marty Schottenheimer
2010: Todd Haley
2014: Andy Reid
And the other winners for this year's 101 Awards:
