'NO JUSTICE' Kansas City Chiefs’ coach Andy Reid’s heartbroken; from son’s death at 29 to horrific drunk driving crash

 

The drunk driving crash put a 5-year-old girl in a coma and left her with traumatic brain injury

 

 

KANSAS City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has experienced huge professional success in his life – and devastating family tragedies.

Reid is considered one of the greatest head coaches in NFL history after leading the Chiefs to three Super Bowls.

But the father-of-five has also had to deal with huge personal loss throughout his career.

Reid’s eldest son Garrett died after a heroin overdose in 2012 at just 29.

Meanwhile, his son Britt has been jailed multiple times, including a 2021 drunk-driving incident that left a girl with severe brain injuries.

Here is a look at Reid’s heartbreaking tragedies involving his children.

Garrett Reid
Reid’s children had “idyllic upbringings” in a suburb of Philadelphia, per the New York Times.

Garrett and Britt became Eagle Scouts and took piano lessons through age 18.

Meanwhile, Reid was an ever-present father despite the demands of his coaching roles with the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles.

Reid would leave home for his Green Bay office at 4 am to work a couple of hours, then return home to help get the children ready for school before going back to work.

“This wasn’t an anecdote told just to get hired,” former Eagles president Joe Banner said.

“He did that for the 14 years that I worked with him. He was as loving and caring a father that I have ever seen.”

Despite having huge advantages, Garrett became addicted to drugs in his 20s and frequently got in trouble with the law.

Garrett was arrested in 2007 for a car crash that seriously injured another driver.

He was under the influence of heroin at the time of the crash and was sentenced to 23 months behind bars.

Garrett was then found guilty of smuggling 89 prescription pills into jail and sentenced to two years in a state drug rehabilitation program.

He was sent to a halfway house in Philadelphia but went back to prison in 2009 after failing another drug test.

“I liked being the rich kid in that area and having my own high-status life,” Garrett told a probation officer.

“I could go anywhere in the ‘hood. They all knew who I was. I enjoyed it. I liked being a drug dealer.”

Garrett seemingly got his life back on track by taking up an unofficial job with the Eagles as an assistant strength coach.

But he was found dead in his room at the club’s training camp at Lehigh University in August 2012.

At his sentencing hearing, in 2007 Reid told the judge, “I don’t want to die doing drugs.

“I don’t want to be that kid who was the son of the head coach of the Eagles, who was spoiled and on drugs and OD’d and just faded into oblivion.”

Britt Reid
Like his elder brother, Britt also got into drugs from a young age.

In a freak coincidence, he was arrested on the same day as Garrett in 2007 for a road-rage encounter.
