Didn’t Reid have another son with substance abuse problems that died?
Yeah I thought I remembered that.

But how does a 35 year old get a scrip for Adderall??? And he has access to but we are to think NONE of his players take???

How in the world do you need Adderall to be an assistant LB coach? What am I missing?

From wikipedia

“In 2007, Britt was sentenced to 8 to 23 months in jail alongside his brother Garrett for running a "drug emporium" from their home.[5]

Reid was involved in a road rage incident in 2007 where he pointed a gun at another man's face. A lawsuit was eventually settled out of court for an undisclosed sum in 2014.[6]

And now this. Sheesh.

I remember when he was having issues with the other son. I would imagine being a top NFL coach makes it pretty hard to be present for your family. Not blaming this on Andy at all, just making an observation about the sacrifices that these guys invariably make to get the edge.
But children are parents responsibility. Of course he has some ownership over his kids having substance abuse issues.

I have thought about this a good bit. Though I went through a lot, Ive come to the conclusion that it would have been very difficult to hold my parents responsible for the stupid stuff I did when I was younger. Obviously every decision a parent makes can affect a child but sometimes when you do the best you can, the worst thing you did to a child is pass on a particular gene. That may or may not be the case here but who among us knows them well enough to qualify to say.
