That passed original head coach Hank Stram for the most in Chiefs’ history — and when he claimed that honor, Reid also became the only coach in league history to have the most wins for two different franchises.
Reid is happy to admit that he admired the Chiefs’ Hall of Fame coach — and is humbled to be among his peers.
“I was a big Hank Stram fan,” explained Reid on Wednesday, “because of [former Chiefs running back] Mike Garrett, [who] grew up in that same area I grew up in. [I] followed his career at USC — and then when he came to the Chiefs, I became a Chiefs fan.
“I had watched Hank Stram. He was somebody I was familiar with — and [I] had a lot of respect for him. I mean, even to be listed in with his name there? It’s crazy.”
