Over the years, Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian has developed a reputation as a strong coach on the offensive side of the ball, serving as the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons and helping lead the Alabama Crimson Tide to a national title as the team’s offensive coordinator in 2020. And he recently revealed who he draws inspiration from: Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
During a recent interview, Steve Sarkisian revealed that he studies Andy Reid often and that he believes the Chiefs’ head coach is the best playcaller in football.
“A guy that I study a lot is Andy Reid and I think he’s arguably the best playcaller in football if not one of,” Sarkisian said according to On3. “And I don’t know if y’all watched that show the ‘Quarterback’ with Pat Mahomes on there, and there was a moment there they’re talking about some of the plays they run in the low red zone and how they come up with those plays and who names the plays.”
Reid has led his team to three Super Bowl appearances in the past four years, so it’s safe to say that’s probably a good coach for Sarkisian to study as he builds his offense.
