About Andy Reid in brief
Andrew Walter Reid is the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League. He was previously the head Coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, a position he held from 1999 to 2012. Reid began his professional coaching career as an offensive assistant for the Green Bay Packers from 1992 to 1998. Reid was the second-youngest head coach in the league after Jon Gruden and the first to get the job while quarterbacks coach without any coordinator experience. In his seven seasons with Kansas City, he has led the Chiefs to six postseason appearances, four division titles, two AFC Championship Games, and one Super Bowl title in Super Bowl LIV. Reid appeared live on Monday Night Football during the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition at age 13, when he was already so large that he wore the jersey of Les Josephson. He also played youth sports in East Hollywood at Lemon Grove Recreation Center, and among his coaches was Pete Arbogast, who is the radio announcer for the USC football team, and formerly the radio play-by-play man for the Cincinnati Bengals. In 2001, Reid was named executive vice president of football operations, making him the team’s general manager. The team drafted dual-threat quarterback Donovan McNabb with the second overall pick in the first round of the 1999 NFL draft. In 2000, the Eagles posted an 11–5 regular-season record and won their first playoff game since the 1995 season beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 17, 1995.
They improved their record by two games to finish at 5–11. Among the five wins was the first victory in 19 games, a 20–16 road victory over the Chicago Bears on November 17, 2000. The Eagles won the Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots on January 28, 1996. Reid’s tenure in Green Bay helped him secure his first head-coaching position with the Eagles, who became perennial postseason contenders under his leadership. He led the Eagles to nine playoff runs, six division titles and five NFC Championship Games. Reid left the team in 2012 following a decline in fortunes and helped revitalize the struggling franchise, including ending the Chiefs eight-game playoff losing streak that had stood since 1993. He is married to former Packers backup Doug Pederson, who started for the team for the first time in the 2010 season. He has two children, a son, and a daughter, all of whom play for the Philadelphia 49ers. Reid is a member of the American Football Hall of Fame and the NFL Hall of Famer. He played offensive tackle at Glendale Community College in Glendale, California, then at Brigham Young University from 1978 to 1980 where he was a teammate of Jim McMahon and Tom Holmoe. Reid also coached Frank Pollack, who went on to play for six seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, and was the offensive line coach for Northern Arizona University in 1986. He won a Super Bowl with the Packers in 1996, the same year quarterback Brett Favre became a member.
