Sunday was the first time Reid has won a Super Bowl as a head coach. However, it's not his first Super Bowl win as a coach in the league as he was on the coaching staff when the Packers won the Super Bowl in 1997 with Favre as the starting quarterback. At the time, Reid was the assistant offensive line and tight ends coach and his work with the Packers led to him getting the head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2009.0comments
During his time with the Eagles, Reid won six NFC East championships, he led the team to five NFC championships and the Eagles reached the Super Bowl in 2005 only to lose to the New England Patriots by a field goal. He joined the Chiefs in 2013 and has led to the team to their first Super Bowl win in 50 years.
"He's one of the best coaches of all time; he already was before we won this game," Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said per ESPN. "But we wanted to get that trophy just because he deserved it. The work that he puts in day in and day out. He's there at like 3 in the morning, and he leaves at 11 [at night]. I don't think he sleeps. I've tried to beat him in, and I never can. He's someone that works harder than anyone I've ever known, and he deserves it."
