Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has a dedicated following of people who like to mimic his look from head to toe. On Monday, one Reid lookalike got a chance to fill in for the head coach during a training camp press conference.

The impression could use a little work, but starting off with the injury report and opening up the presser for questions with Reid’s signature “Time’s yours” was pretty spot on. He even threw in a little throat clearing, which Reid is known to do. On another note, it is 2016. Can we please stop shooting vertical videos? Thanks.
During Reid’s long tenure as a head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, one Birds fan (Steve Odabashian) became famous for showing up in his best Andy Reid costume complete with headset and play chart and attending games in the stands. Once caught on camera during a game, he quickly became the talk of the town, and he actually ended up getting an endorsement deal with a local clothing and apparel distributor as a result.
We don’t know if this particular Andy Reid lookalike has any endorsement deals worth noting, but it is nice to know the Chiefs have a fill-in should the need ever arise.
