“I’m incredibly grateful to chairman and CEO] Clark [Hunt] and the entire Hunt family for giving me the opportunity to lead this historic franchise,” Reid said [in a statement released by the team. “Over the last 11 years, Tammy and I have enjoyed calling Kansas City our home. The community has embraced us, we’ve watched our family grow, including having all 12 grandkids during our time here.

“On the field, there have been so many people that have contributed to our success and Super Bowls, and I’m grateful to the players, coaches and staff that have all invested their time into this process.

Since Reid’s arrival, the Chiefs have experienced sustained success, which rose to championships after Patrick Mahomes took over as the starter. The pairing has been the central driving force toward making Kansas City the gold standard in the league.

Veach has cemented himself as a key factor in helping construct rosters that have guided the franchise to three Super Bowl wins. The Chiefs have reached five straight AFC championship games and captured eight consecutive AFC West division titles.

Kansas City will move forward with its core group intact for the foreseeable future.
