KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs say they placed outside linebackers coach Britt Reid on administrative leave following last week's three-car accident that left a 5-year-old girl in critical condition.
A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Reid was actually placed on leave Friday -- the day after the crash -- and that his contract expired following Sunday's game, meaning he's no longer an employee of the team.
"We remain in the process of gathering information on the incident, and we will continue to assist local authorities as requested,'' the Chiefs said in a statement. "Our focus remains on [the girl] and her family. We have reached out to the family to offer our support and resources to them during this difficult time, and we will continue to pray for her recovery.''
Reid, 35, the son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, acknowledged to police he was driving the vehicle that collided with two other cars, including the one with the 5-year-old inside. The police report said the driver of that vehicle suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was being investigated for possible impairment.
Andy Reid said this week that Britt Reid underwent surgery but wasn't more specific.
A Kansas City Police Department officer said Britt Reid's eyes were bloodshot and that the officer smelled "a moderate odor of alcoholic beverages," according to a police officer statement obtained by ESPN. The statement went on to say Reid told the officer he had two to three drinks and that he also took prescription Adderall.
