Andy Reid Biography

Andy Reid (Andrew Walter Reid) is an American football coach who is the current head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). He was previously the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, a position he held from 1999 to 2012.

From 2001 to 2012, Reid was also the Eagles’ executive vice president of football operations, effectively making him the team’s general manager. Andy Reid led the Eagles to five National Football Conference (NFC) championship games, including four consecutive appearances from 2001–2004, and one Super Bowl appearance in 2005. He played college football at Brigham Young University.

He attended John Marshall High School and as a teenager he worked as a vendor at Dodger Stadium. Reid 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 1971, when Reid was 13, he appeared live on Monday Night Football during the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition; he was already so large that he wore the jersey of Les Josephson (6’1″, 207 pounds).

He played offensive tackle at Glendale Community College in Glendale, California. Reid also played offensive tackle at Brigham Young University from 1978 to 1980 where he was a teammate of Jim McMahon.

Andy Reid Coaching Career

Andy Reid College

After graduating from BYU in 1981, Reid spent one year as a graduate assistant on the school’s football coaching staff. He spent the next nine years as an offensive line coach with four colleges, including in 1986 with Northern Arizona University when he coached Frank Pollack, who went on to play for six seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

Andy Reid Packers

In 1992, Reid was hired as an assistant coach by the Green Bay Packers, the same year quarterback Brett Favre became a member of that team. In 1997, Reid was named the Packers’ quarterbacks coach, the season after the Packers won Super Bowl XXXI.

Reid replaced Marty Mornhinweg, who left to be the offensive coordinator for his predecessor in Green Bay, Steve Mariucci. Mariucci originally wanted Reid to be his offensive coordinator in San Francisco, but Packers head coach Mike Holmgren prevented the move.

Andy Reid Eagles

Reid’s good work with the Packers attracted considerable notice throughout the league, leading to his being hired as the head coach of the Eagles on January 11, 1999. Originally, the Eagles considered hiring Mike Holmgren, Reid’s boss in Green Bay, as head coach to replace Ray Rhodes, who was fired after leading the Eagles to a league-worst 3–13 season. However, Mike Holmgren opted to join the Seattle Seahawks instead, but advised Eagles owner Jeff Lurie to hire Reid.

In 2001, Reid was named executive vice president of football operations of the Eagles, effectively making him the team’s general manager.

Reid left Eagles in 2012 after Jeffrey Lurie announced his firing on December 31, 2012, immediately at the end of the 2012 NFL season. Reid was the longest-tenured head coach in the NFL prior to his release.
