KANSAS CITY -- Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has received a contract extension less than a week after earning his fourth Super Bowl ring.

The Chiefs announced Spagnuolo’s extension on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Wednesday before the parade celebrating their latest Super Bowl title. The announcement didn’t reveal the terms of the deal.

Spagnuolo, 64, has been Kansas City’s defensive coordinator since 2019, and the Chiefs have won the Super Bowl in three of his five seasons. He also was the New York Giants’ defensive coordinator during their 2007 Super Bowl championship season.

Kansas City’s 25-22 overtime victory Sunday night against the San Francisco 49ers made Spagnuolo the first coordinator on either side of the ball to win four Super Bowl titles. He already was the first coordinator to win a Super Bowl with two different franchises.

The Chiefs ranked second in the NFL in total defense and scoring defense this season.
