Chiefs DT Chris Jones calls HC Andy Reid the ‘White Father’ in his life….. Here is Why


The growth of every player throughout a career is crucial to their success on or off the field.


The Kansas City Chiefs, under head coach Andy Reid, have earned a reputation for having a player-friendly environment focused on development.

Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones started the season a game late due to a lengthy contract dispute and hold-out. The two sides secured a deal to get him back on the field, but he always kept good conversations with the coaching staff.

During Wednesday’s press conference, Jones spoke about his relationship with Reid transcending the player and coach dynamic.

“He’s been amazing. He’s been like, don’t kill me for this, like the white father in my life,” Jones explained to a chorus of laughter with the reporters.

“He’s been very inspirational. His son, Britt Reid, is like a brother to me. His wife Sparkles, she’s like a mother to me, too. So, you know, for me, he’s been family.”
