The Kansas City Chiefs, coached by Andy Reid, face the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game tonight, and if they win, Reid will have the opportunity to lead his team to a second straight Super Bowl.
His wife, Tammy, has been by his side throughout his coaching career. In 1981, after meeting each other as BYU students, they tied the knot.
Tammy once replied, “I’d never known a coach, I’d never been with a coach,” when asked about the demanding schedule of a coach’s spouse.
In retrospect, I wish I had said, “I had no idea what our lives were going to be like. I’ve always been the type to “bloom where you’re planted” and “roll with the punches.” That’s why we’d up and left. If I could do it all over again, I would pack up the family, pack up the house, sell the house, do whatever else was necessary, load up the U-Haul, and go.
Andy has been a head coach in the NFL for three different teams (the Green Bay Packers, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Kansas City Chiefs).

Andy and Tammy Reid had five children together: Britt Reid, Spencer Reid, Crosby Reid, Drew Ann Reid, and the late Garrett Reid. On August 5, 2012, at 29, Garrett tragically lost his life due to a heroin overdose.
When asked about his brother’s death, Britt, who coaches with his father, said, “We all miss him. Yes, this is something he would enjoy.
Football, especially, was a huge passion of his. This spot, right here, would have been a paradise for him. As it stands, it’s not as great as it could have been. Britt’s recent history with the law is not good.
