Andy Reid, Philadelphia Eagles head coach has to deal with something no parent wants to, the death of their child. Andy’s son Garrett Reid was found dead in his room at Lehigh University Sunday morning.
A cause of death is yet to be determined, but an autopsy is being conducted.
“What I can tell you is this morning we were contacted by the Lehigh campus police department and (were) requested to respond for the discovery of a deceased male,” Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek told the Associated Press. “We are conducting an investigation with the cooperation of the Lehigh campus police department and I personally pronounced Mr. Reid deceased at the scene.”
“This news is heartbreaking for everyone in the Eagles family,” Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said. “Our hearts go out to Andy, his wife, Tammy, and their children.”
Garrett, 29, and his younger brother Britt has caused the Eagles head
coach problems in the past with drug issues. Andy had to miss time with the team due to court dates for his sons after they were arrested on drug and weapons charges.
Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and defensive coordinator Juan Castillo will oversee the team until Reid returns the Eagles have stated.
