SALT LAKE CITY, Utah –Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said his coaching style is to “treat people the way I want to be treated.”
Reid’s comments came when he was asked about his coaching style during a Super Bowl LV media session on Feb. 2.
“I think we all want to be treated a certain way,” Reid said, “I know how I like to be treated…you don’t necessarily have to yell and yell at me for me to do something better. I mean, I don’t think that’s the best approach. And then I think after a little while, knowing myself, I’d turn that person off and probably not listen to anything she would say. So I sort of go about it that way.
“I try to treat people the way I would like to be treated,” Reid continued. “I think whether it’s through what I’ve learned at church or with my family, I think we’re here as teachers, and that’s what I’m doing. This is how I see myself as a teacher and in my case, men, young men. And whether it’s on or off the pitch, if I can give them experience to help them… become better players or husbands… fathers, I try to do that.
