Kansas City Chiefs OLB coach Britt Reid’s contract officially expires

Bizar Male

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that they had placed assistant coach Britt Reid on administrative leave after Reid police said caused a car accident that left 5-year-old Ariel Young in critical condition. It appears the move to place Britt on leave was merely a formality.

As first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter and later confirmed by Kansas City Star beat writer Sam McDowell, Reid’s contract with the Chiefs has expired. The administrative leave lasted for the duration of the contract, which apparently wasn’t much longer. The team no longer employs Reid, a son of head coach Andy Reid, and his future with the team is in serious doubt.

Britt is under investigation by police in Kansas City, Missouri, for impaired driving following the multi-vehicle crash that injured Young and another child. The NFL recently announced that it would be reviewing Reid’s case under the league’s personal conduct policy for any potential violations as soon as law enforcement has completed its case.

Young remains in critical condition as of Wednesday evening. The GoFundMe account set up for Young and her family has raised over $500,000. The Chiefs organization has also reached out to the family to offer support and resources.
