Chiefs coach Britt Reid in car crash injuring 2 young kids


(AP) — Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, the son of head coach Andy Reid, was involved in a multi-vehicle crash late Thursday that injured two young children near the team’s training complex adjacent to Arrowhead Stadium.


Local television station KSHB reported that Reid told an officer on the scene he had “two or three drinks,” according to a search warrant filed just before midnight.


The team confirmed late Friday that Britt Reid was involved in an accident, and a person familiar with the decision said he would not coach in the Super Bowl Sunday.


“The organization has been made aware of a multi-vehicle accident involving outside linebackers coach Britt Reid,” the Chiefs said in a statement following their final practice in Kansas City.


Reid began his coaching career as an intern for his father with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009.


He spent the next two years as a graduate assistant at Temple, his alma mater, before joining his father’s original Chiefs coaching staff in 2013.
