(chiefs.com) – Pro Football Focus published their rankings of the top head coaches in the National Football League on Wednesday, and after leading the Kansas City Chiefs to their second Super Bowl title in four seasons, Andy Reid topped the list.

“Reid is the best; there is just no debate. Yes, he has Patrick Mahomes, but Mahomes didn’t make Reid who he is as a head coach — he enhanced him, as all great head coach-quarterback relationships do. Reid is not perfect, no head coach is, but since he took over in 2013, he is 129-52 including the postseason with a cumulative offensive grade of 93.6 in those 10 years. And he has two Super Bowls to show for it. Since 2018, the Chiefs’ 0.241 expected points added per pass is the highest mark by a country mile, with the Chargers in second at 0.129.”

Reid, who joined the Chiefs ahead of the 2013 campaign, has led Kansas City to the most regular-season victories (117) and the second-most playoff wins (12) of any team in the NFL over the last 10 seasons. That stretch includes an active streak of eight-consecutive postseason berths – the longest active streak in the league by four years – and seven-straight AFC West titles.

Reid’s 247 regular-season victories rank fifth all-time while his 22 playoff wins rank second, trailing only Bill Belichick (31). He’s undoubtedly on his way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame one day, but in the meantime, Reid still has plenty of time to enhance his already immense resume.
