ALBANY, N.Y. — Head coach Tom Coughlin opened Monday’s post-practice press conference on a somber note, offering condolences to Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid and his family following the death of Reid’s oldest son Garrett.
“Yesterday was a very sad day for all of us in the NFL family. And our condolences, our deepest sympathy goes out to Andy and Tammy Reid and their families at the terrible, terrible loss of their son,” Coughlin said. “We also have [defensive] assistant coach Al Holcomb who lost his mother yesterday, so it was kind of a sad day for us yesterday throughout the league.”
Garrett Reid, 29, was found dead Sunday morning in his room at the Eagles' training camp at Lehigh University.
