It is official.
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and general manager Brett Veach are staying with the team for the long haul. News that the Chiefs were signing Reid and Veach to contract extensions broke in early September.
The organization confirmed the news via its official Twitter account on Monday.

Team owner Clark Hunt made official statements on both extensions via releases posted to Chiefs dot com.
HUNT ON REID: “Over the last eight seasons here in Kansas City we’ve had the opportunity to witness one of the greatest head coaches of all time lead our franchise to its first Super Bowl title in 50 years. He’s a Hall of Fame head coach, but more importantly, an outstanding person who has really changed our team culture. I’d like to congratulate Andy and his family on this well-deserved extension. It is our hope that he can finish his legendary career right here in Kansas City.”
HUNT ON VEACH: “Brett has had a remarkable run as our General Manager over the past four years, and he certainly deserves this recognition. His creativity, along with personal connection to our players and staff, has helped build a championship roster. He has had an impressive start to his career as a GM, and I know he’ll continue his aggressive approach that has consistently improved the talent of the Chiefs.”
Both Reid and Veach also made statements in the releases.
REID: “I’d like to thank Clark and the entire Hunt family for their support over the last eight years. Aside from winning the Super Bowl, one of my favorite moments last season was being able to be a part of bringing the Lamar Hunt Trophy back to the family. I’m grateful for our players, my coaching staff, our support staff and our great fans. My family and I love living in Kansas City, and I look forward to continuing my career here.”
VEACH: “I’d like to thank Clark and the entire Hunt family for putting the trust and confidence in me to run our personnel department. I’m blessed to be surrounded by talented people, including a tremendous staff and a Hall of Fame head coach. I’m excited and looking forward to continue building upon the foundation we’ve established as a team.”
As we noted in September, the extensions will reportedly keep the duo in Kansas City together through the 2025 season.
