MIAMI, Fl. (KMIZ)
Former Mizzou football coach Gary Pinkel traveled to Miami, Florida for Super Bowl LIV.
"The Super Bowl is such a great event. I went to it the first time two years ago in Houston, and I'm just really excited about this and obviously, with the Chiefs in it, we're all revved up and excited about the game," Pinkel said.
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was the offensive line coach at Mizzou from 1989 to 1991.
"You know I really want to win this for Andy, because he's such a great coach, a great person and doggone he deserves this victory. So that's kind of, to me, the emotional part of it," Pinkel said.
Pinkel said that he believes the Chiefs could win on Sunday.
"I think that, you know, we got a great team and we certainly can win the game," Pinkel said. "You know strategically there's gonna be a lot of things happening and change out through the game but at the end of the day, you know, we're gonna have to play, fewest mistakes win and also teams that makes plays when you need to make them. That's usually what happens."
Pinkel also said that he has been impressed with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, saying he is "brilliant as a leader."
