Andy Reid has a new life in Kansas City. But he was careful to acknowledge his Philly legacy. The former Eagles coach rode in the Chiefs’ private plane over the weekend before officially becoming their new coach. But he had nothing but positive things to say about his 14 seasons with Philadelphia during a 15-minute conference call today with the media that cover the Eagles.
“I have nothing but fond memories,” Reid said. “I loved my time there. I had 14 great years. I want the (Eagles) fans to know that I love Philadelphia. I haven’t sold my home there. And I wish nothing but the best for the Eagles. I think they’re in a better place now than when I took over, and I wish them nothing but good things in their future.”
“Change can be good. Obviously I’ve had a change and so have the Eagles. And that can be a positive thing.” Reid is taking over a Chiefs team that finished a league-worst 2-14 this past season under Romeo Crennel.
