Current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid

The Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL) have had 13 head coaches in their franchise history. The franchise was founded in 1960 by Lamar Hunt and were known as the Dallas Texans when the team was located in Dallas, Texas.[1] The team relocated to Kansas City, Missouri and were renamed the Chiefs in 1963. The franchise was a charter member of the American Football League (AFL) before entering into the NFL following the AFL-NFL merger.[1][2]

Hank Stram, the team's first head coach, led the Chiefs to three AFL championship victories and two appearances in the Super Bowl. Stram was the team's longest-tenured head coach, holding the position from 1960 to 1974.[2] Marty Schottenheimer was hired in 1989 and led Kansas City to seven playoff appearances in his ten seasons as head coach.[3][4] Gunther Cunningham served as the team's head coach in between stints as the team's defensive coordinator.[5][6] Dick Vermeil coached the team to a franchise-best 9–0 start in the 2003 season.[7][8] Of the thirteen Chiefs coaches, Hank Stram and Marv Levy have been elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.[9] Seven head coaches have led the Chiefs to the playoffs, of those seven, only three won a game in the playoffs. Herman Edwards served as the team's head coach from 2006 to 2008, compiling a 15–33 record.[10][11][12][13] Todd Haley, served his first season with the team in 2009,[14][15] but was fired on December 12, 2011.[16] Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel was named the team's interim head coach for the remaining 3 games of the season.[17] Following the 2011 season Crennel was named permanent head coach.[18] Crennel was fired after the 2012 season, having posted a 4–15 record as head coach.[19] Andy Reid has been the head coach since 2013.
