Britt Reid No Longer Employed By Chiefs After Team Lets Contract Expire

Britt Reid, the son of Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, is no longer with the team.

According to a tweet from Adam Schefter of ESPN, a source confirmed the Chiefs have let the contract run out for the assistant coach after he was placed on administrative leave following a three-vehicle accident prior to Super Bowl LV.

He did not travel to Tampa with the team.

The accident happened last week, and the result are two injured children, one of whom is in critical condition.

The unfortunate crash has led to an investigation into Reid to determine whether he was impaired at the time of the accident. He has already admitted to having two or three drinks and a prescription Adderall, according to an article from Adam Teicher at ESPN.

The 35-year-old assistant coach has been with the Chiefs since 2013. He started off as a defensive quality control coach and has slowly worked his way up to being the linebackers coach over the last two seasons.

It’s unknown whether the move will be permanent, but the main concern should be the injured, especially the five-year-old girl who is in critical condition.

  1. A previous DUI, a previous arrest for drugs and paraphernalia and another arrest for pulling out a gun in a road rage incident. If he wasn’t Andy’s son I doubt he would have been hired.

  2. His actions leading to the accident were completely unnecessary, considering the position he holds and the biggest game was days away. It tells me he has addiction problems that override everything else.

  3. Ditto on all the above comments. Further, how much did this affect the team on Sunday? I’d like to say as pros, it shouldn’t have, but let’s fact it, the Chiefs came out with NO energy on Sunday. It was a slog from the get to. The fear and worry about that little girl had to have had some impact.

  4. There is a ton of tragedy in this article and in the previous suicide of Andy Reid’s eldest son in 2012. Sometimes things turn out in a bad way for all involved and none of us can determine why. Some families can survive an all encompassing pursuit like being a high powered NFL coach and some cannot. It is a mystery for all of us.
