CBS Sports Ranks Andy Reid as the NFL's Best Head Coach

Reid has tallied 98 victories during his tenure in Kansas City

The folks at CBS Sports ranked every head coach in the NFL earlier this week, considering both past performance and future outlook in their evaluation while identifying the best coaches in the business. They went through all 32 teams in their rankings, with Kansas City Chiefs' Head Coach Andy Reid checking in at No. 1.

Here's what CBS Sports' Cody Benjamin wrote about Coach Reid:

"It seems darn near impossible to think of Reid without Patrick Mahomes, the NFL's model QB and arguably the most naturally gifted passer this side of Aaron Rodgers. But there's evidence for Reid's coaching ability well beyond No. 15: He went 14 strong years in Philadelphia, guiding a whopping five NFC title-game appearances, then instantly coaxed playoff results from Alex Smith in Kansas City, all before completely remaking his own offense to capitalize on Mahomes and his weapons' backyard-ball athleticism. For years, he always approached the big game. Then he won it. Now, as the perfect player-friendly and always-creative overseer of some of the NFL's best talent, he's a perennial candidate to win it all again."

Reid is simply one of the greatest coaches in NFL history, amassing 238 total wins (regular and postseason) during his illustrious career – the fifth-most in NFL history. His 17 career postseason victories rank fourth in league history, trailing only Bill Belichick (31), Tom Landry (20) and Don Shula (19).

Since arriving in Kansas City back in 2013, Reid has led the Chiefs to 98 total victories – the second-most in the NFL during that span behind only New England – while tallying five division championships, three AFC Championship Game appearances, two conference titles and a victory in Super Bowl LIV.

He's simply the best head coach in the business, and as the Chiefs eye a third-straight trip to the Super Bowl this season, Reid is just getting started.
