After leading the Kansas City Chiefs to their fourth Super Bowl appearance in the past five years, you would think Andy Reid is the highest-paid head coach in the NFL. Yet, somehow, he’s not.

Instead, Reid ranks behind several other coaches who were hired more recently, and there’s even been speculation that Reid could retire once the Super Bowl ends.

Yet, other NFL insiders expect a different outcome for the Chiefs head coach, one that sees him receive a contract extension and a big raise.

While some are wondering if the 65-year-old head coach is thinking about retirement, others around the industry, including CBS Sports, indicate Andy Reid is far closer to getting an extension, which will surely include a big raise.

“Sources tell CBS Sports an extension is more likely than retirement heading into Reid’s fifth Super Bowl appearance. Reid, one of the winningest coaches of all time, is in line to get a raise almost no matter the outcome of Sunday night’s game. He signed a six-year extension after his first Super Bowl victory four years ago, and he has two years left on his current deal.”

Another source who spoke to CBS Sports had a much more firm stance on Coach Reid’s status with the Chiefs.

“He’s not retiring. He’s not paid what he should be getting paid. Problem with the whole organization. Pay has not been what it should be all the way top to bottom.”
