Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is all about football, family, faith — and his wife, Tammy.
Andy’s relationship with Tammy traces back to the early days of his career when he was a football player at Brigham Young University. After meeting on campus, the couple began dating. By that summer, things were serious between the pair, and at the suggestion of Tammy’s father, Andy converted to Mormonism. A year later, Andy and Tammy were married in 1981.
Now, four decades and five children later, Andy and Tammy say they’re just as in love as ever. Even when Andy’s team doesn’t win the big trophy, he still has his “trophy wife” by his side. In fact, Andy admits that he still calls Tammy his girlfriend and tries to continually do special things for her.
“I’ve been … with her for about 40 years now,” he said in February 2020 after winning the Super Bowl with the Chiefs. “Every day is a special day, I’m telling ya. I call her my girlfriend for that reason. You never lose interest if you do that, right, you guys out there? Call them your girlfriend and you always do special things for them.”
All About Andy Reid, the NFL Coach
Tammy has supported Andy through his entire professional coaching career, starting with his stint with the Green Bay Packers in 1992 all the way through his current gig as the Chiefs head coach, where he earned his second Super Bowl victory during Super Bowl LVII.
“Maybe people don’t know this about me but I’m a very positive person and I have the ultimate trust in Andrew as a coach,” Tammy explained in a Chiefs profile of Andy. “We’ve been through 38 years of coaching and so I never don’t think we’re going to win.”
So, who is Andy Reid’s wife? Here’s everything to know about Tammy Reid. Tammy was born on Nov. 6, 1959, in New York. She was raised in Memphis, Tennessee, before she moved to Arizona, where she attended high school. Growing up, she said her mother and father set an incredible example for the person she wanted to become and were always involved in their community.
“My parents are the greatest examples of service that I’ve ever met in my whole life,” she told The Time Herald. “There was hardly a day that went by when my mom or dad wasn’t helping someone: driving someone somewhere, fixing something, taking a meal or baking something.”
Following her high school graduation, Tammy enrolled at Brigham Young University.
