Travis Kelce’s shove on Andy Reid ‘is not a big deal’, insists the Chiefs coach as he says the pair have discussed his shock outburst – and he doesn’t expect any other Kansas City players copying the tight end’s actions

Andy Reid says Travis Kelce’s Super Bowl outburst is ‘not a big deal’ and stressed that the two have cleared the air after the Chiefs star nearly knocked him over in a moment of anger.

Kelce shoved his coach, 65, and screamed in his face after being left out of a vital play in Sunday’s game in Vegas that was curtailed when running back Isiah Pacheco fumbled the ball.

Reid gave a brief press conference on Tuesday where he was asked if he was concerned other Chiefs players would overstep the line like Kelce.

‘Listen, he and I have talked. It’s not a big deal,’ Reid said. ‘I wouldn’t anticipate other players doing that.’

The Chiefs coach laughed off the exchange after the game was over – telling reporters Kelce ‘keeps me young.’

He added: ‘He tested that hip out. He caught me off balance – normally, I’d give him a little bit, but I didn’t have any feet under me.’

Kelce, speaking after the win on Sunday, refused to reveal exactly what he yelled at Reid but did reaffirm how much respect he has for his coach.

‘I’m going to keep it between us unless my mic’d up tells the world,’ Kelce said. ‘I was just telling him how much I loved him.’

And at a press conference after the game Kelce, 34, said he owed his success as a three-time Super Bowl winner to the coach.

‘I got the greatest coach this game has ever seen,’ said Kelce. ‘He’s unbelievable at not only dialing up plays and having everybody prepared, but he’s one of the best leaders of men that I’ve ever seen in my life.’

‘And he’s helped me a lot with that, with channeling that emotion, with channeling that passion,’ he continued. 

‘And I owe my entire career to that guy and being able to control how emotional I get and I just love him, man.’
