Head coach Andy Reid jokes Travis Kelce ‘tested’ his hip when he bumped him during Super Bowl 2024

Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid laughs as he pushes Travis Kelce after his team wins the big game during Super Bowl 2024.

“It keeps me young,” Reid said with a laugh during a post-game interview with CBS with his wife, Tammy, after the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime.

“Not so good [balance] – He tested that hip. It caught me off balance,” Reid, 65, continued.

“Normally I can get a little bit of it, but I didn’t have my legs under me.”

Reed reiterated that there were no hard feelings after the tense moment, telling reporters, “He loves playing the game and he loves helping his team win. It’s not a selfish thing.”

He added, “The more he bumps into me, the more I fall behind him. We understand that.”

The tight end, 34, also tried to laugh off the moment of outrage, joking with reporters, “Ah, you guys saw that? I’ll keep it between us until my Mike tells the world.

“I was just telling him how much I love him.”

Kelce also became emotional during the postgame press conference as he described how he owes his “career” to Reed.

“I got the greatest coach the game has ever had,” he said. “It’s incredible and not just in getting everyone ready. One of the best leaders I have seen in my life.

Cales blew on Reid after the Chiefs lost a notable pass made by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and demanded he be put into the game.

Kells thrust his body into Reed, who grabbed his arm and momentarily lost his balance before yelling at him.

Keys teammate Jerick McKinnon quickly pulled him away from Reed.

A source close to Kelce later dismissed any real animosity between the coach and his player.

“He’s just a passionate player and everyone is on edge. It’s the Super Bowl! But there was no ill intent,” shared the insider.

“He respects Coach Reid. It’s really just about the passion of the game. It was nothing serious. “

All feelings of shock and anger melted away the moment the Chiefs won the Lombardi Trophy and Kelce was showered with hugs and kisses by his family and his girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
