“Big Red” is making some decent green.
The Chiefs head coach has done nothing but build winning teams throughout his NFL head coaching career. His efforts with the Eagles didn’t result in a championship. In the City of Fountains, another well of success sprung up, and that elusive Super Bowl win followed.
Now, Reid is eyeing more jewelry. The Chiefs are angling for another AFC crown as they take on the Bengals this weekend. It would be the latest feather in the cap of the future Hall of Fame coach.

Reid has parlayed his NFL success into pretty decent earnings. Elite coaches make elite money, and Reid’s reported salary is in line with those of his highest-earning counterparts.
Here’s how much Reid is making in 2023:
Andy Reid contract details
According to SI’s Albert Breer, Reid is making about $10 million per season. Based on the six-year extension he signed in 2020, that means he’s making about $60 million total.
Since NFL coaching salaries typically aren’t made public, there’s some mystery surrounding Reid’s annual salary. Some outlets peg Reid as making around that $10 million number, which would put him in the top five in coach earnings, behind Sean McVay, Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll and John Harbaugh.

Reid has now been in Kansas City for a decade: He signed to become the team’s sideline boss on Jan. 4, 2013. He signed a contract extension with the organization in 2017, following the team’s first AFC West division crown since 2010.
Reid signed another contract extension in 2020, this time a six-year deal, which will pay him through the 2025 season. Suffice it to say, short of an unexpected retirement, Reid isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Reid is certainly worth the money. The Chiefs have won seven consecutive division titles, they’ve captured the franchise’s first Super Bowl win since 1970, and they now have an opportunity to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl for the third time in the last four years.
While Reid is seeing green, other teams are surely green with envy as they look at the Chiefs coach.
