The Kansas City Chiefs and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo have agreed to a contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.

The extension comes after Spagnuolo, 64, helped the Chiefs post their best defensive season since he became coordinator in 2019. They finished the 2023 regular season allowing the second-fewest yards per game (289.8) and points per game (17.3). Prior to this season, Kansas City had not finished better than 11th in total defense under Spagnuolo.

Spagnuolo just completed his fifth season with the Chiefs and won his third Super Bowl with the franchise. He also owns a Super Bowl ring from his tenure with the New York Giants.

Before joining the Chiefs, he’d spent three seasons as the Giants defensive coordinator. That stretch was his second stint with New York after serving as the franchise’s defensive coordinator for their Super Bowl run in 2007.

He also spent three seasons as the coach of the then-St. Louis Rams (2009-11) and a season as the defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints (2012).
