The Kansas City Chiefs announced Monday that they've signed head coach Andy Reid, general manager Brett Veach, and team president Mark Donovan to contract extensions.

It was reported in February that Reid and Veach were expected to begin negotiating new deals after the Super Bowl. Reid, 66, is now the NFL's highest-paid head coach and is signed through 2029, sources told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Veach reportedly is also signed through the end of the decade.

Kansas City topped the San Francisco 49ers in overtime to lift the Lombardi Trophy for a second straight year.

"Mark, Brett, and Andy have achieved historic success together, and we are thrilled that they will continue in their roles for many years to come," Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement Monday. "Individually, Mark, Brett, and Andy each represent the best in the National Football League at their respective positions, and together, they make up one of the finest leadership teams in all of professional sports.

"They have been tremendous leaders for this organization on and off the field, and we look forward to their continued success in the years ahead."

The Chiefs are 100-34, including the playoffs, since Donovan, Veach, and Reid all began working together in 2017. Kansas City has also won seven straight AFC West titles and made four Super Bowl appearances, winning three under their watch.

One of the NFL's most respected and creative offensive coaches, Reid has helped the Chiefs build a juggernaut along with quarterback Patrick Mahomes, whom Veach and Co. drafted 10th overall in 2017.

Mahomes reacted to the news Monday on social media:

Reid, who's faced retirement questions in the last two years, is entering his 26th season as an NFL head coach. He ranks fourth all time among coaches with 258 regular-season wins, and his 26 career postseason victories are second to only Bill Belichick (31).

The Chiefs will enter the 2024 season trying to become the first team ever to win three consecutive Super Bowl titles.
