Son of NFL Head Football Coach Found Dead
By the CNN Wire Staff
(CNN) — Garrett Reid, son of Philadelphia Eagles head football coach Andy Reid, was found dead Sunday in his room at the Eagles training camp at Lehigh University.
“This is a tough morning for all of us in the Eagles family,” the team’s General Manager Howie Roseman said, holding back tears as he announced the news to reporters.
“Garrett grew up with this team, and this makes this news even harder for us to process.”
Training camp will continue, he said.
There were no signs of suspicious activities, authorities said.
Reid, 29, was assisting the strength and conditioning staff at training camp, the team said. He was a guest of his father, not part of the staff, a team spokesman said.
An investigation is under way.
