The Chiefs have released new footage from their Super Bowl celebrations, with Andy Reid telling his players: “Let’s party tonight!” as he held up the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the third time in his career in the team’s locker room after the game.

The 65-year-old began his speech by raising the Vince Lombardi Trophy, saying at the beginning: “Hey, I appreciate you guys, great job!” I mean great job!’
Just before hoisting the Lombardi trophy again, he added: ‘And… let’s party tonight, huh!’
‘What about those Chiefs?!’
‘Bosses!’ The players responded.

Reid is now a three-time Super Bowl champion with Patrick Mahomes as his starting quarterback at KC.
The victory over San Francisco made the Chiefs the first team since Brady’s Patriots 19 years ago to repeat. They have won three of the last five Super Bowls and played in four of them.
And it didn’t look like they were done either, openly talking about trying to become the first team to win a third title. Reid, however, warned it wouldn’t be easy, pointing to new divisional coaching hires, with the LA Chargers bringing in Jim Harbaugh and the Raiders elevating Antonio Pierce.
“We have great competition in the AFC West,” Reid said. ‘These guys are good football coaches. “It’s not just going to be easy.”
No matter what, Reid has secured his place among the greatest coaches of all time. His three Super Bowl titles trail only Bill Belichick’s six with New England and Chuck Noll’s four with the 1970s Steelers.
Reid is tied with San Francisco’s Bill Walsh and Washington’s Joe Gibbs. Walsh was known for his innovative West Coast offense, and Gibbs is the only coach to win three championships with three different starting quarterbacks.
Reid has shown an ability to tailor his offense around his personnel and maximize their potential, but his success will be especially tied to Mahomes. Before Mahomes arrived, Reid had doubts about whether he could win it all.

In 14 years in Philadelphia, he went 224-130 and led the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance and four straight NFC championship games. But no ring.
Since then, questions have ranged from whether Reid can win it all to where he ranks among the best coaches in the NFL.
“I think he’s the greatest coach of all time,” Mahomes said. “I know he didn’t have trophies (before Kansas City) and I have a lot of respect for some of those great coaches. But the way he’s able to navigate every team he has allows him to continue to be successful no matter where he is. .
‘He brings out the best in me because he lets me be me. I think that’s important. He’s not trying to turn me into anyone else. I don’t think he would be the quarterback I am if I didn’t have Coach Reid as my head coach.’
Reid plans to stay as Mahomes’ coach for at least one more season, even if, at nearly 66, he could retire after another Vince Lombardi Trophy and with his legacy secured.
“I haven’t even thought about it, but they ask me,” Reid said. “I’m still a little shocked by (Sunday’s) game and what happened there. … I keep saying, ‘Why didn’t Belichick and Pete (Carroll) retire?’ Ask those old guys that question, but now I am the old one.”
