The trial date for former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, son of Andy Reid, has officially been set according to numerous reports.

On April 18, 2022, Britt Reid will stand trial for a felony driving while intoxicated charge. The charge comes following a car crash on February 4, ahead of Super Bowl LV, where Reid is alleged to have been driving under the influence. The crash left a 5-year-old girl with a traumatic brain injury and left another child badly injured.

The DWI charge was initially filed against Reid in April of 2021. He plead not guilty to the charge in June. If convicted of the Class-D felony, the 36-year-old could face up to 7 years in prison.

Reid was hired as a defensive quality control coach by Kansas City when his father became head coach of the team in 2013. He worked his way up to his post as the team’s outside linebacker coach, moving through the Chiefs’ coaching ranks over the years.

Reid was placed on administrative leave for a brief time following the crash before his contract with the team expired. The Chiefs have since hired Ken Flajole to take over as the team’s outside linebackers coach.
