The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday night. Immediately following the game, Chiefs veteran backup QB Chad Henne announced his retirement on his Instagram page with a picture of him enjoying a Bud Light on the field.

It was a fitting way for the former Michigan Wolverine to go out. He announced it on his terms with little fanfare, going out on top with a Super Bowl ring to cap off a 13-year career.

Chad Henne Retires

Henne's alma mater, the University of Michigan, thanked and congratulate their former quarterback on Monday via Twitter.

Before being drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft, Henne starred as Michigan's starting quarterback from 2004-2007, racking up nearly 10,000 passing yards along with an 87:37 TD/INT ratio.

While he may not have had the same level of impact in the NFL as one of his predecessors at Michigan who also recently retired (Tom Brady), he still managed to carve out a solid and lengthy career as a backup for the Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and ultimately the Chiefs.
