PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Andy Reid was in Philadelphia this weekend and he was answering questions about football.

Reid, the former Eagles head coach, was a panelist at the NFL’s Career Development Symposium at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. The audience included 70 NFL assistant coaches and player-personnel executives seeking advice, as well as Zach Berman of the Inquirer.

“I was inside the auditorium when Andy [Reid] was speaking and he was candid because he was literally answering a question from a perspective head coach, from an assistant coach who is looking to become a head,” Berman told Michael Barkann and Ike Reese on 94 WIP on Monday. “And what the question was, was about self-evaluation. The way the question was posed to Andy was that, ‘When you become a head coach or GM [general manager] clearly you’re talented at the field, so how did you evaluate yourself?'”

Berman discussed Reid’s note-worthy answer as well, which is quoted in Berman’s piece on Philly.com, as Reid explained he may have been too engulfed in personnel decisions towards the end of his tenure with the Eagles.

“And what Andy said was that, a year ago he had to do it because he got fired and what he realized is that he strayed from what he does best, what he loves to do, and that’s coaching,” Berman explained. “And he was more on the personnel side, so he determined that for his next job he was really going to get back to coaching on the field, calling plays.”
