Reid is a beloved figure in the NFL for his acumen as well as his affable personality. After appearing in one other Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles, and more than 200 victories, this Super Bowl win only adds to his Hall of Fame credentials.
"We wanted to get him that trophy because he deserved it," said Patrick Mahomes, the game's MVP. "The work he puts in day in and day out ... I don't think he sleeps. I try to beat him in and I never can. He is someone that works harder than anyone I've ever known, and he deserved [this]. I'm glad I could get that trophy for him."

Andy Reid deserved this Super Bowl— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) February 3, 2020
In 2020, Andy Reid escaped from NFL coaching Purgatory. All they found was a walrus mustache, a Hawaiian shirt & a play calling card damn near worn down to the nub. I remember thinking it would take him 600 years to with a Super Bowl with the Chiefs- old Andy did it in under 10.— Frank Caliendo (@FrankCaliendo) February 3, 2020
