Andy Reid continues to set new marks for personal greatness as an NFL head coach.
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was already a likely Hall of Fame coach well before he established this franchise as a perennial contender. However it hasn’t exactly hurt his chances to put together a potential dynasty in K.C.
On Sunday, Reid climbed even higher on the list of the NFL’s greatest head coaches of all time with his 213th regular season victory in a dominant road win over the Denver Broncos. It’s an incredible total that tied him with Paul Brown for sixth place on the NFL’s all-time win list.
In Week 8 against the New York Jets–a team that is currently winless, by the way, Reid will have the opportunity to eclipse the longtime coach of the Browns and Bengals. From there, he would move into sixth place on his own, on the heels of Green Bay Packers legend Curly Lambeau, who is only 13 wins ahead of Reid in fifth place at 226. From there, Reid would need multiple seasons to reach the great Tom Landry at 250 wins.
The Chiefs knew they were upgrading at head coach when they convinced Andy Reid to take over the team in 2013 after the abysmal run of Todd Haley and then Romeo Crennel under Scott Pioli’s leadership in the front office. What team owner Clark Hunt could not have known at the time was just how successful this team would soon become.
