Super Bowl 2024: Where Chiefs’ Andy Reid ranks among NFL’s greatest head coaches after third Super Bowl title

Andy Reid has risen up the coaching stratosphere in his 60s. Once the longtime head coach who couldn’t win a Super Bowl, Reid has captured his third Super Bowl championship in five seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs — ushering in the league’s newest dynasty.

While Noll has never lost a Super Bowl, he only had one double-digit win season and two playoff wins in his final 12 seasons coaching in the NFL.

In 23 seasons, Noll won four Super Bowl titles, four conference championships and eight division titles. He also had eight double-digit win seasons (the season didn’t expand to 16 games until 1978, and Noll had five of them in the 14-game…
