Andy Reid named AFC coach of the year by the 101 Awards

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The 101 Awards in Kansas City have named Andy Reid the AFC's coach of the year.

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.

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:

Interesting note: Just once since 2003 has someone not named Tom Brady or Peyton Manning won this award.
