While in high school, he hawked goods at Dodger Stadium and participated in youth sports at the Lemon Grove Recreation Center. While competing in the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition, Reid was also featured on “Monday Night Football” live.
He continued his schooling at both Brigham Young University and Glendale Community College. He was an offensive tackle for the football team at both schools.
Andy Reid Beginnings in Coaching
After earning his degree in 1981, Reid worked as a graduate assistant for the BYU football team for a year. Over the next nine years, he worked as an offensive line coach at four universities, including Northern Arizona University. In 1992, Reid finally entered the NFL as an assistant coach for the Green Bay Packers.
A few years later, he was promoted to assistant coach of the offensive line and tight ends. When the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl XXXI in 1996, it was Reid’s biggest professional achievement to that point. After that, he took over coaching duties for the team’s quarterbacks.
Andy Reid Kansas City Chiefs
Reid became the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs in early 2013 after agreeing to a five-year contract. His success with the team was augured early; in his very first game as head coach, the Chiefs trounced the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-2, the greatest margin of victory for the team on opening day since 1963.
The Chiefs started the season 9-0 thanks to Reid’s leadership and ended the year 11-5. With a 9-7 record and no postseason appearance, 2014 was hardly a banner year for the squad. The following season, the Chiefs bounced back strongly under Reid’s direction, and they won the playoffs for the first time since 1993.
In 2016, the team’s success continued as they went 12-4 and won their division. In 2017, the Chiefs won their division once again but were eliminated by the Titans in the Wild Card Round. For Reid, the 2018 season was memorable because the Chiefs concluded the regular season as the AFC’s top seed and won their third straight division title.
For the first time ever, the team hosted the AFC Championship game, although they ended up losing to the Patriots. Significantly, it was during the 2018 season that Reid achieved his 200th career win, making him one of only a few of NFL coaches to accomplish that feat. The Chiefs repeated as division champions in 2019, and their home field was once again the site of the AFC Championship.
The squad reached Super Bowl IV, which they won for the first time in 50 years by beating the San Francisco 49ers. The Chiefs made it back to the Super Bowl the next year, this time losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
