Respecting people is an important part of life, whether it's the person doing janitorial work or the person above you. It doesn't matter who you are: I'm going to respect you.

American football coach, Andy Reid isn't regarded as one of the greatest coaches in NFL history without a reason. "Big Red" is the only NFL coach to win 100 games for two different teams, have the most wins for those same teams, and appear in five conference championships with two different franchises.

About Andy Reid's Height

Andy Reid isn't known as "Big Red" without a reason. He is big and he is red -- at least his hair color in his younger years was red and he was enormous from a very young age.

According to Ken Gerard, one of Reid’s physical education teachers at Thomas Starr King Junior High School, Reid was 6'2" and weighed 220 pounds when he was 13 years old. That's how enormous he was.

But people do grow after 13, especially males. Now Andy Reid's height is listed as 6 feet 3 inches on the internet.

From what we have seen of Andy, we think it is entirely possible that Andy Reid was 6'2" [Andy looks shorter than 6'3" Doug Pederson] when he was younger but now in his mid-60s, Andy looks a bit shorter. 

People lose height with age and tall and heavy people like Andy Reid lose a lot more than the slimmer ones because their heavier weight causes their causes the spinal discs to shrink even more.

The height of Andy Reid in his prime was

6 ft 2 in (188 cm)

The NFL is a unique work place. There are no secrets anymore. Technology has taken over, and secrets are exposed. People are going to know what you're all about. You have to make sure you have real honesty in the work place, or you're going to be exposed.
