When Andy Reid became the head coach of the KC Chiefs, many questioned if he would ever put his time with the Philadelphia Eagles and the City of Philadelphia behind him.
According to Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star, the KC Chiefs' 11-5 season in 2013 helped that process along and has ensured that Reid and his wife, Tammy, are focused on the road ahead in Kansas City.
However, as Paylor points out, "there is one tradition the Reids brought with them from their old address, something that helps tie them to their community."
“In our church, we try to get out and talk to members of the church and at the same time, anybody in the community that would like to listen about family, faith and football,” Reid stated in Paylor's article posted on Saturday. “Those are three of our favorite subjects and we just try to share our experiences with people.”
Reid and his wife spoke in front of a packed LDS sanctuary in Platte City on Saturday night, in front of a congregation which included the mayor of Kansas City, Sly James.
“We do have this huge faith and we like to share it, because it’s made our lives better and it makes our lives richer,” Tammy stated. “We don’t mind talking about our lives — our lives are an open book.”
