Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is one of the best coaches in the NFL, and that’s hard to dispute.
In just one season, he took an organization that was 2-14 and turned said organization into a playoff team. Granted he had tons of help, general manager John Dorsey deserves much of the credit, but without a doubt; Reid has succeeded as the face of this organization.
He’s a likable guy, he has the track record you look for in a head coach, and everything would suggest that his players enjoy playing for him.
It’s my opinion that the mark of not only a great coach, but a great person, is how they handle failure; and Reid has handled Kansas City’s first round loss to the Indianapolis Colts with grace. Many coaches will do their end of the season presser and move on. Perhaps there will be a few interviews, but that’s it.
Certainly not a half hour interview on local radio, in the studio.
The video above is of Reid talking with Soren Petro from 810 WHB this past Tuesday morning. Reid didn’t just call into the show, mind you. The head coach literally sits there with Petro and talks the playoffs loss, Jamaal Charles’ injury and goes through his thought processes throughout the game. He even touches on the future and the offseason, and he takes 30 minutes of his time to do so.
If you ever wonder why people think Reid is one of the best, just watch the video and find out why.
