Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid briefly talked about Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s relationship in a podcast interview on Monday night.

Reid said there was “no distraction” on the team and that he knew the pop star way before Kelce tried to woo her with friendship bracelets at one of her tour stops.

“Yeah, listen, she’s been great,” Reid said on the “Let’s Go!” podcast. “I knew her before, from Philadelphia. Her dad played at Delaware and was a big football fan and good guy. So I had met him there and her. 

“And so that was the last thing Trav wanted to hear, that I knew her before him. She told him, ‘I know your coach.’ And he went, ‘Oh, God, come on!’ She’s a good girl. And I’m happy for Trav. And there has been no distraction that way at all. And Trav’s handled it right, she’s handled it right and we just move forward. So it hasn’t been a problem at all.”

A big underlying story will be whether Swift makes it in time for kickoff at Super Bowl LVIII. She will be ending the Japan leg of the tour the day before the Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers in the game.

However, she can make it.

“Taylor Swift performs in Japan the night before the Super Bowl. It will end around 10pm Tokyo time (5 am Las Vegas time),” Sports business reporter Darren Rovell wrote on X.

“The flight from Tokyo to Vegas takes 12 hours, meaning Swift can arrive at 5pm local on the day before the Super Bowl, 25 hours, 35 mins before kickoff.”

Former Miami Marlins President David Samson added, “For those wondering, Taylor Swift can do a concert Saturday night 2/10 in Tokyo and easily be in Vegas for the game on Sunday 2/11. You actually land before you take off. And that is what she will do.”

If all goes well, Swift could potentially be in Las Vegas as the Chiefs prepare for the game. She would only have a small window to help Kelce either celebrate the Super Bowl or console him after a loss.

If Kansas City wins, they will become the first team since the New England Patriots to win back-to-back Super Bowls.
