Chiefs extend DC Steve Spagnuolo after Super Bowl LVIII victory

The Kansas City Chiefs extended defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s contract on Wednesday after his exceptional performance in Super Bowl LVIII that helped the team win its third championship of the Patrick Mahomes era.

The terms of Spagnuolo’s contract weren’t announced, but the Chiefs confirmed his extension on Twitter.

Spagnuolo, a grizzled veteran of the NFL ranks, has been with Kansas City since 2019 after stints with the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants. His contributions have been crucial to the Chiefs’ success in recent years, and won’t soon be forgotten by fans who have watched Kansas City’s rise to dominance.

The Chiefs’ decision to extend Spagnuolo was a no-brainer after the superb performance his unit put together against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

Regarded as one of football’s top defensive minds, Spagnuolo should be expected to stay in Kansas City for years to come after his extension on Wednesday.
