K.C. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has become the first in NFL history in his role to reach 100 career wins with two different franchises.

With the Chiefs’ win in Week 4 over the Philadelphia Eagles, Reid reached win number 100 with the Chiefs, which now immortalizes him in yet another way in a career that will certainly one day feature enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

It was fitting that Reid accomplished such a tremendous feat against the very team with whom he also reached the 100-win mark. Both franchises were made much better by his enduring presence, and the Chiefs are looking at a potential window for a dynasty with Reid at the helm and Patrick Mahomes under center.

Reid spent his first 14 seasons in the National Football League with the Eagles where he racked up an incredible 130 regular season wins to go against 93 losses and 1 tie. He had a postseason record of 10-9 there, giving him 140 total wins in Philly.

That playoff record, however, is why his tenure there didn’t last longer, as most fans and analysts believed that Reid couldn’t win the proverbial “big game” after failed attempts with some of the best rosters the Eagles could put together. After a season in which the Eagles went 4-12 in 2012, the team decided to turn the page and allow his contract to expire.

Since Reid was essentially let go from the role, the Eagles have had four different head coaches in the eight-plus seasons since then. Chip Kelly was the first hire and lasted for three seasons before Pat Shurmur took over as interim. Then Doug Pederson was actually hired away from Reid’s staff with the Chiefs to take over, but even after winning a Super Bowl in 2017, he was fired after the 2020 season and the Eagles hired Nick Sirianni to take over.
