Andy Reid unveiled his new coaching staff on Friday. It includes plenty of familiar names, and even a member of his own family.
His son, Britt Reid, will serve as a quality control coach. The press release reads:
Reid enters his first season in the NFL after spending three seasons with the Temple University Owls. At Temple, Reid served as a graduate assistant, working with the offensive side of the ball after a two-year stint as an offensive assistant while he completed his degree. In addition to his three years at Temple, Reid has worked the Steve Addazio football camp for the past two years and in 2008, he served as an assistant offensive line coach at St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia. He got his first taste of NFL experience as a training camp coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. Reid is the son of Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid.
As expected, Doug Pederson was named offensive coordinator. Reid also hired former Eagles quality control coach Matt Nagy to be his quarterbacks coach; named former receivers coach David Culley assistant head coach/wide receivers; and also brought over Tommy Brasher (defensive line), Tom Melvin (tight ends) and strength and conditioning men Barry Rubin and Travis Crittenden from his staff in Philadelphia.
“I’m pleased we were able to get all of these coaches on board,” Reid said. “I have relationships with each of them, and I know their past experiences, work ethics and coaching styles. These are high-character coaches, and each one brings something different to the table for us.”
Jets linebackers coach Bob Sutton has reportedly been tabbed to be Reid’s defensive coordinator, but was not named in the press release.
