Andy Reid

Andrew Walter Reid (born March 19, 1958) is an American football head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL).[1] Reid was previously the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, a position he held from 1999 to 2012.[2] From 2001 to 2012, he was also the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, effectively making him the team's general manager. He 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. Reid ranks seventh in NFL head coaching wins at 207, which are the most of an NFL head coach not to win a championship.

Early life

Born in Los Angeles, California, Reid attended John Marshall High School and worked as a vendor at Dodger Stadium as a teenager. 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 1971, at age 13, Reid appeared live on Monday Night Football during the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition;[3] he was already so large that he wore the jersey of Les Josephson (6'1", 207 pounds).[4] Reid played offensive tackle at Glendale Community College in Glendale, California.[5] Reid played offensive tackle at Brigham Young University from 1978 to 1980 where he was a teammate of Jim McMahon.[6]

Coaching Career

College

After graduating from BYU in 1981, he 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.[7]

Green Bay Packers

Reid was hired as an assistant coach by the Green Bay Packers in 1992, the same year quarterback Brett Favre became a member of that team.[8] In 1995, he became the assistant offensive line and tight ends coach, where he helped lead the 1996 team to a Super Bowl XXXI win over the New England Patriots.[9][10] Reid was named the Packers' quarterbacks coach in 1997, replacing 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.[9]

Philadelphia Eagles

The quality of Reid's 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. At the time, many in the local media in Philadelphia criticized the hiring, citing the availability of other candidates who had past records of success as head coaches. It was noted that Reid had never been an offensive coordinator or defensive coordinator at the time of the hiring. 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.[11] However, Holmgren opted to join the Seattle Seahawks instead, but advised Eagles owner Jeff Lurie to hire Reid.[9]

In 2001, Reid was named executive vice president of football operations of the Eagles, effectively making him the team's general manager. Although the Eagles have had someone with the title of general manager since 2005 (Tom Heckert from 2005 to 2010, Howie Roseman from 2010 until Reid's departure), Reid had the final say on football matters.[12]

Early years

The Eagles in 1998, then under coach Ray Rhodes, finished in a three-way tie for the NFL's worst record at 3–13, which gave the team the second overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft.

The Eagles hired Reid as their head coach in 1999. The team drafted dual-threat quarterback Donovan McNabb with the 2nd overall pick, although Reid started former Packers backup Doug Pederson for the first nine games of the season.[13] They improved their record by two games in 1999 to finish at 5–11 (including the team's first road victory in 19 games, a 20–16 win in Chicago on October 17).[14][15] In 2000, the Eagles posted an 11-5 regular-season record and won their first playoff game since the 1995 season, beating Tampa Bay in Philadelphia on New Year's Eve.[16][17]

In 2001, Reid's Eagles won the first of four consecutive National Football Conference's Eastern Division titles, the longest such streak in franchise history, and advanced to the conference championship game in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004, losing this game on the first three occasions. The 2003 team qualified for postseason play after opening the season with two losses, both at home, and was also the first NFL team ever to reach the conference title round of the playoffs after having been shut out at home on opening day. The 2004 team was the second NFC East squad to defeat all of its division rivals (New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, and Washington Redskins) twice during the same regular season (Dallas Cowboys did it in 1998). The 2004 Eagles clinched the NFC 1st seed with a 13–1 record and proceeded to rest their starters for the final 2 games. After 3 straight NFC Championship losses, the team beat the Falcons 27–10 and made it to Super Bowl XXXIX but fell to the New England Patriots 24–21 in the final minutes.[18][19]

2005–2006

The 2005 season was difficult for Reid, as he was unprepared to deal with wide receiver Terrell Owens' flamboyant persona, which forced Reid to permanently deactivate him midway through the season. A couple of weeks later quarterback Donovan McNabb suffered a season-ending injury, leaving the Eagles without the services of two of their star players. The Eagles lost eight of their last ten games and finished 6–10.[20] On the bright side, with their third win of the season–a 23-20 win over the Oakland Raiders–Reid passed Greasy Neale to become the winningest coach in franchise history.

The Eagles enjoyed a rollercoaster campaign under Reid in 2006. The season appeared to be lost by October with another season-ending injury to McNabb, turning a 4–1 start into a mid-season breakdown which left the team 5–5. After an embarrassing 45–21 defeat at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts, the Eagles were on the verge of elimination from the playoffs. Reid coached backup quarterback, Jeff Garcia, and the 5–6 Eagles, to victories over a slew of NFC rivals including the Carolina Panthers, Washington Redskins, New York Giants, and Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles, at 10–6, won the NFC East division title, as well as an NFC Wild Card game against the New York Giants. Their season ended at the hands of an opportune Saints team in the NFC Divisional Round.[21][22]

2007–2011

In the 2007 season, Reid led the Eagles to an 8–8 season with no appearance in the postseason.[23]

In the 2008 season, Reid's 9–6–1 Eagles managed to knock off the defending Super Bowl Champions, the New York Giants, in the divisional game, leading the Eagles to a 5th NFC Championship game, where they lost to the Arizona Cardinals 32–25.[24][25][26] He also coached the NFC to a 30–24 win in the 2009 Pro Bowl. However, the team was devastated by the loss of Jim Johnson, who had been the defensive coordinator for Reid's entire career and had helped turn the Eagles into one of the NFL's elite defenses.

In the 2009 season, Reid failed to win a first round post-season game for the first time in his career, with his 11–5 Eagles being eliminated by the 1st place Dallas Cowboys 34–14 in the wild-card round.[27][28] Over the off season the Eagles traded longtime starting quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Redskins. After week 2 of the 2010 season, Reid named Michael Vick the starting quarterback of the Eagles.

In the 2010 season, Reid led the Eagles to 10–6 record in the regular season and qualified for the playoffs.[29] In the Wild Card Round against the Green Bay Packers, the Eagles fell 21–16.[30]

Reid was named the Earle "Greasy" Neale Award winner for the third time in 2010.[31]

In the 2011 season, Reid led the Eagles to an 8–8 season with no appearance in the postseason.[32]

2012

In the 2012 season, Reid and the Eagles struggled to a 4–12 record, the worst of his head coaching tenure.[33] The year also marked the first time the Eagles missed the postseason in consecutive years under Reid. Immediately at the end of the 2012 NFL season, on December 31, 2012, Jeffrey Lurie announced Reid's firing.[34] Reid was the longest-tenured head coach in the NFL prior to his release.[35] Reid provided encouragement to his successor as Eagles head coach, Chip Kelly.[36]

During his 14-year tenure with the Eagles, Reid compiled the best win total (120), winning percentage (.609) and playoff victory total (10) in team history.[37] He captured six division titles and five trips to the NFC Championship game. During this period, no other franchise earned more divisional playoff round appearances (7) and only Bill Belichick's New England Patriots exceeded Philadelphia's (5) conference championship game appearances with (6). Despite his success, however, Reid was ultimately unable to lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl title.

Reid also sent 19 players to 44 Pro Bowl appearances, the highest total for any team in the NFL during that period. None of these players had ever appeared in a Pro Bowl before Reid was hired.[38]

Since 1990, only ten first-time head coaches remained with their original team for eight or more years: Reid (1999–2012), Tennessee's Jeff Fisher (1994–2010), Brian Billick (1999–2007 with Baltimore), Bill Cowher (1992–2006 with Pittsburgh), Dennis Green (1992–2001 with Minnesota), Tom Coughlin (1995–2002 with Jacksonville and 2004–2015 with the New York Giants), Jack Del Rio (2003–2011 with Jacksonville), Cincinnati's Marvin Lewis (2003–2018), Green Bay's Mike McCarthy (2006–2018), New Orleans's Sean Payton (2006–present), Pittsburgh's Mike Tomlin (2007–present), Baltimore's John Harbaugh (2008–present), and Dallas' Jason Garrett (2011-present).

Kansas City Chiefs

2013–2015

On January 4, 2013, Reid reached a five-year contract agreement to become the head coach of the Chiefs.[39][40] On the same day, the Chiefs fired general manager Scott Pioli. Originally, Reid's contract made him the final authority in football matters, the same power he had in Philadelphia.[41] A week later, however, the Chiefs hired John Dorsey, who had previously worked with Reid as an assistant in Green Bay, as general manager. Reid and Chiefs owner Clark Hunt announced that Dorsey will have the final say in personnel matters. On the same day, Hunt announced that Reid will report directly to him; in the past Chiefs coaches reported to the general manager.[42]

In Reid's first game as head coach, the Chiefs beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, 28–2.[43] It was the widest margin of victory for the Chiefs on opening day since they defeated the Denver Broncos in 1963 by a score of 59–7.[44]

In Week 3, Reid returned to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia for a Thursday Night Football game between the Chiefs and his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. As Reid walked out onto the field before the game started, the crowd gave him a standing ovation. The Chiefs went on to win 26–16 and Reid received a Gatorade shower from his team.[45]

Reid went on to lead the Chiefs to a 9–0 record at the start of the season, tied for the best start in franchise history. Despite losing five of their last seven games, the Chiefs finished with an 11–5 record to clinch a Wild Card spot in the AFC playoffs. In the Wild Card round, they were defeated by the Indianapolis Colts 45–44 after surrendering a 28-point lead in the third quarter.[46][47]

Under Reid, the Chiefs would again obtain a winning record in the 2014 season, finishing 9–7. However, they failed to qualify for the playoffs.[48]

In 2015, the Chiefs were in danger of missing the playoffs for a second consecutive year after they lost five straight games and began the season 1–5. Reid accepted the blame for his team's poor start[49] and his future with the Chiefs was called into question.[50] However, the Chiefs rebounded and proceeded to win every remaining regular season game, finishing with an 11–5 record and a Wild Card spot in the AFC playoffs.[51] Reid would go on to lead the Chiefs to their first playoff win since 1994 in a 30–0 shutout of the Houston Texans, but the team would be defeated 27–20 in their subsequent Divisional Round game against the New England Patriots.[52][53] Prior to the loss, the Chiefs posted an eleven-game winning streak, which is the best in franchise history. Reid was criticized for his clock management near the end of game, calling no timeouts in a late fourth quarter drive that cut the Patriots' 27–13 lead down to a touchdown, but took the Chiefs 5 minutes and 16 seconds to score and left them with only a minute and 13 seconds to tie the game.[54]

2016–present

Reid improved in regular season with the Chiefs in 2016, who finished with a 12–4 record and clinched their division for the first time since 2010, as well as the first time under Reid.[55] The Chiefs also went undefeated against their AFC West rivals to secure the division on a tiebreaker with the 12–4 Oakland Raiders and obtain a first-round bye as the AFC's second seed.[56] The bye was the Chiefs' first since 2003.

Despite the team's regular season success, the Chiefs would be eliminated in the Divisional Round for a second consecutive year in an 18–16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Although the Chiefs were able to prevent the Steelers from scoring any touchdowns, they were unable to match the six field goals that Pittsburgh converted.[57]

The Chiefs started strong during the 2017 season, winning their first five games to become the NFL's last remaining undefeated team, including a victory against defending Super Bowl champions New England Patriots in the kickoff game.[58] After their strong start, the Chiefs subsequently lost six of their next seven games, resulting in Reid conceding play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Matt Nagy. Nevertheless, the Chiefs won their last four games to finish 10–6 and clinch the AFC West for a second consecutive year, the first back-to-back division title in franchise history.[59] However, the team ultimately suffered a sixth consecutive home playoff loss in a 22–21 defeat against the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round. Despite holding a 21–3 lead at halftime, the Chiefs were shut out during the second half as the Titans scored 19 unanswered points to win the game.

2018 saw new success for Reid and the Chiefs. Aided by the MVP season of quarterback Patrick Mahomes in his first year as the primary starter, the Chiefs finished the regular season as AFC's top seed for the first time since 1997 and the first time with Reid as head coach by matching 2016's 12–4 record. Reid also extended the franchise's record for consecutive division titles through clinching the AFC West for a third straight year. The Chiefs subsequently ended their home playoff losing streak by defeating the Indianapolis Colts 31–13 in the Divisional Round, the first postseason win at home since 1994. With the victory, the Chiefs hosted the AFC Championship for the first time in franchise history, which they lost 37–31 to the New England Patriots in overtime.

During the season, Reid recorded his 200th victory to become one of only nine NFL head coaches to win 200 games. With his 206th win at the end of the regular season, Reid also surpassed Marty Schottenheimer for the most wins of an NFL head coach to not win a championship.
