Andy Reid does NOT need a second Super Bowl title this weekend to cement his eventual place in Canton … so says ex-NFL head coach Brad Childress, who tells TMZ Sports the Chiefs honcho is already a Hall of Fame lock.
Reid’s resume is ultra-impressive — he’s been a head coach for 24 seasons and has piled up a staggering 247 wins to just 138 losses … but, some have wondered if dropping his Super Bowl record to 1-3 Sunday could somehow hold him back from eventual enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Childress, though, told us this week there’s no chance that happens … even if the 64-year-old loses to the Philadelphia Eagles in Arizona.
“He’s already a Hall of Fame guy,” Childress said. “All [a win] does is put some sprinkles on top of the sundae.”
In fact, Childress — who coached for years as an assistant on several of Reid’s staffs — said he believes the K.C. head man already has a case to be on the Mt. Rushmore of all-time NFL coaches.
“His professional career is second to none,” Childress said.
As for if this could possibly be the finale of Reid’s career — there’s been speculation he could choose to ride off into the sunset with a win — Childress said there’s certainly a chance … though unlikely.
