Britt Reid is 35 years old.
Reid is the son of Andy and Tammy Reid. He is the second of five children. He has two brothers (Garrett and Spencer) and two sisters (Drew Ann and Crosby).
Reid was married to his wife Kristen Nordland.
On Jan. 30, 2007, in Pennsylvania, Reid was arrested after an incident in which he was accused of pointing a gun at another driver. Reid pled guilty to charges for simple assault, carrying a firearm without a license and possessing a controlled substance without registration. That same day, his brother Garrett – who died from a heroin overdose in 2012 at age 39 – was arrested in another accident involving drug use.
Britt and Garrett Reid were each sentenced to jail in Pennsylvania in November 2007, Britt for eight to 23 months and four years’ probation. The brothers had lived at their parents’ house at the time; the judge who sentenced them said Andy and Tammy Reid’s home didn’t have “any structure there that this court could depend on.”
Britt Reid pled guilty to three more charges stemming from an August 2007 incident in the parking lot of a sporting goods store: driving under the influence of a controlled substance; possessing a controlled substance without registration; and use and possession of drug paraphernalia. He had also been arraigned for careless driving, court records show.
Britt Reid, in his second year as Chiefs outside linebackers assistant, has coached with his father in Kansas City for the last eight seasons. He spent three years as defensive line coach (2016-18), one as assistant defensive line coach (2015) and two as a defensive quality control coach (2013-14).
“It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s a great experience,” Britt Reid said Monday of working for his father. “Growing up as a coach’s kid, you don’t get to see your father that much. Now, coaching for him, I basically see him every day now. So that’s awesome.”
This past Monday, Kansas City Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid met with the media as part of the buildup to Super Bowl 55.
The 35-year-old assistant discussed how his father, head coach Andy Reid, has “probably got to be harder on me than anyone else.” Of Andy Reid’s three sons, Britt said, he was always most “wired like he is.” And Britt Reid discussed the matchup with Tampa Bay his team was preparing for, how the Chiefs facing the Bucs would be a “heck of a game” and “two great teams battling out.”
It’s a game Britt Reid will now miss.
The collision injured three people, including children ages 5 and 4. The 5-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries, Kansas City police officer Dave Jackson told USA TODAY Sports.
Britt Reid did not travel with the team to Tampa for Super Bowl 55, the team confirmed. The Chiefs issued a statement Friday evening that they were aware of the accident, were “in the process of gathering information” and they had “no further comment at this time.”
Kansas City TV station 41 Action News reported that, according to a search warrant, a Kansas City police officer reported an odor of alcohol. The station also said that according to the warrant, Reid told police he had two to three drinks.
Jackson did not name Reid when he released details to USA TODAY Sports. But he did say “impairment” was being investigated.
This is not Britt Reid’s first run-in with law enforcement.
Reid has been cited by law enforcement for speeding or careless driving on at least three occasions, including in Pennsylvania in 2011 and twice in Missouri. He was cited for exceeding the posted speed limit by 16-19 miles per hour in August 2014, and for exceeding the posted speed limit by 11-15 miles per hour in August 2018, Missouri court records show. He had most recently been ticketed for speeding in September 2019, though a prosecutor dismissed the ticket.
