It all comes, after Chiefs’ coach Reid was asked if he would go to the WH if the team was invited following its come from behind victory to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV.
“Oh man, I hadn’t even thought about that,” Reid explained during the postgame presser. “I mean, I’ll be there. So, if they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor I think.”
