Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will host three coaching clinics in Missouri as part of a partnership with USA Football, according to the Associated Press.

"Smart coaching can make a lasting and positive impact on kids and their sports development," Mahomes said in a statement. "I'm happy to partner with USA Football to support healthy football practices for coaches and youth athletes across the KC region."

In addition, Mahomes announced 15 youth leagues around Kansas City will be given $2,000 operating grants.

"Patrick's commitment to kids through his 15 and the Mahomies Foundation is immense and uncommon," USA Football chief executive Scott Hallenbeck said. "We value Patrick's friendship and love of the game to deliver best-in-class coach training and grants to help elevate youth football programs throughout Greater Kansas City."

Mahomes has ascended to superstardom with the Chiefs, winning an MVP award and Super Bowl LIV and shattering most of the franchise passing record book in just three seasons as a starter. Kansas City has reached the AFC Championship Game in each of his last three seasons and the Super Bowl in the last two.

Mahomes inked a $450 million contract that locked him in with the Chiefs through 2031, and he and his fiancee, Brittany, have been active members of the Kansas City community.

In 2020, the couple, through the 15 and the Mahomies Foundation, made a $100,000 donation during the COVID-19 pandemic to Kansas City Public Schools lunch programs and organizations that provide meals and household goods to families in need.
