Chiefs head coach Andy Reid officially returned to the office.

The Chiefs tweeted a video on Friday afternoon showing Reid arriving at the team's training facility for work, marking the first time the head coach has been there since the COVID-19 pandemic prompted local shelter-at-home orders in March.

Of the Chiefs' coaching staff, only Reid and special-teams coordinator Dave Toub were present at the facility, a source told The Star.

Before Friday, the team's entire coaching staff worked remotely from home, including during the 2020 NFL Draft and free agency, and used Web-based applications such as Zoom to hold calls and meetings.

Reid's and Toub's presence at One Arrowhead Drive coincided with the NFL's allowing coaching staffs to return Friday to training facilities around the league contingent on being in compliance with state and local government protocols during the pandemic.

The NFL's guidance, which was issued Thursday, increased the number of personnel allowed at a team facility from 75 to 100 people. Players not receiving medical treatment as part of their rehabilitation remain prohibited from being at the facility.

Reid wasn't the only head coach to return to work Friday.

According to, six head coaches were at their respective facilities: Reid, Denver's Vic Fangio, Houston's Bill O'Brien, Pittsburgh's Mike Tomlin, Cincinnati's Zac Taylor and Cleveland's Kevin Stefanski.
