Born in Los Angeles, California, Reid attended John Marshall High School and worked as a vendor at Dodger Stadium as a teenager. He also played youth sports in Los Angeles, and among his coaches was Pete Arbogast, who is the radio announcer for the USC football team, and formerly the radio play-by-play man for the Cincinnati Bengals. In 1971 (at age 13) Reid appeared live on Monday Night Football during the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition. Reid played offensive guard and defensive end at Brigham Young University for head coach LaVell Edwards.
After graduating from BYU in 1981 he spent one year as a graduate assistant on the school's football coaching staff. He spent the next nine years as an offensive line coach with four different colleges, including in 1986 with Northern Arizona University when he coached Frank Pollack, who went on to play for six seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
He was hired as an assistant coach by the Green Bay Packers in 1992, the same year quarterback Brett Favre became a member of that team. Reid was named the Packers' quarterbacks coach in 1997, the season after the Packers won Super Bowl XXXI.
The quality of Reid's work with the Packers attracted considerable notice throughout the league, leading to his being hired as the head coach of the Eagles on January 11, 1999.
In 2001, Reid was named executive vice president of football operations of the Eagles, effectively making him the team's general manager. Although the Eagles have had someone with the title of general manager since 2005, Reid had the final say on football matters.
The Eagles in 1998, then under coach Ray Rhodes, finished in a three-way tie for the NFL's worst record at 3-13. The Eagles hired Andy Reid as their head coach in 1999. They improved two games in 1999 to finish at 5-11
In 2001, Reid's Eagles won the first of four consecutive National Football Conference's Eastern Division titles, the longest such streak in franchise history, and advanced to the conference championship game in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004. The 2003 team qualified for postseason play after opening the season with two losses, both at home, and was also the first NFL team ever to reach the conference title round of the playoffs after having been shut out at home on opening day. The 2004 team was the second NFC East squad to defeat all of its division rivals twice during the same regular season. The Eagles made it to Super Bowl XXXIX but fell to the New England Patriots 24-21 in the final minutes.
The 2005 season was a difficult one for Reid, as he was unprepared to deal with wide receiver Terrell Owens' flamboyant persona, which led Reid to permanently deactivate him midway through the season. A couple of weeks later quarterback Donovan McNabb suffered a season ending injury, leaving the Eagles without the services of two of their star players. The Eagles lost eight of their last ten games and finished 6-10.
The Eagles enjoyed a rollercoaster campaign under Reid in 2006. The season appeared to be lost by October with another season-ending injury to McNabb, turning a 4-1 start into a mid-season breakdown which left the team 5-5. After a 45-21 defeat at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts, the Eagles were on the verge of elimination from the playoffs. Reid coached backup quarterback, Jeff Garcia, and the 5-6 Eagles, to victories over a slew of NFC rivals including the Carolina Panthers, Washington Redskins, and New York Giants. The Eagles, at 10-6, won the NFC East division title, as well as an NFC Wild Card game against the New York Giants. Their wild ride ended at the hands of an opportune Saints team in the NFC Divisional Round.
In the 2008 season Reid led the Eagles to a 5th NFC Championship game, where they lost to the Arizona Cardinals 32-25. He also coached the NFC to a 30-24 win in the 2009 Pro Bowl.
In the 2009 season, Reid failed to win a first round postseason game for the first time in his career, with his 11-5 Eagles being eliminated by the Dallas Cowboys 34-14 in the wild-card round. Over the off season the Eagles traded starting quarterback, Donovan McNabb, to the Redskins. After week 2 of the 2010 season, Reid named Michael Vick the starting quarterback of the Eagles.
Reid was named the Earle "Greasy" Neale Award winner for the third time in 2010.
Immediately at the end of the 2012 NFL season, on December 31, 2012, Jeffrey Lurie announced Reid's firing. Reid was the longest-tenured head coach in the NFL prior to his release. Reid provided encouragement to his successor as Eagles head coach, Chip Kelly.
During his 14-year tenure, Reid has compiled the best win total (120), winning percentage (.609) and playoff victory total (10) in team history. He captured six division titles and five trips to the NFC Championship game. During this period, no other franchise earned more divisional playoff round appearances (7) and only Bill Belichick's New England Patriots exceeded Philadelphia's (5) conference championship game appearances with (6). Reid also sent 19 players to 44 Pro Bowl appearances, the highest total for any team in the NFL during that period. None of these players had ever appeared in a Pro Bowl before Reid was hired.
On January 4, 2013, Reid reached a 5-year contract agreement to become the head coach of the Chiefs. On the same day, the Chiefs fired general manager Scott Pioli. Reids contract gives him control over all football operations. He is one of three current coaches who have the title or powers of general manager, the others being New England's Bill Belichick and Washington's Mike Shanahan.
During the 2018 season, Reid recorded his 200th victory to become one of only nine NFL head coaches to win 200 games. With his 206th win at the end of the regular season, Reid also surpassed Marty Schottenheimer for the most wins of an NFL head coach to not win a championship.
