Whether it is his faith, his family or his football team, Herm Edwards exudes passion in all areas of his life. That energetic and enthusiastic approach best defines how he approached his task as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. With his diverse background in pro football either as a player, scout, an assistant coach or head coach, Edwards has become one of five coaches in NFL history to take two different teams to the playoffs in their debut seasons with them. That same energy, enthusiasm and insight is directed to Edwards’ new role as in-studio NFL analyst for ESPN.
Edwards has used his experience in the league to serve as a positive role model and has been involved in numerous charitable efforts and philanthropic endeavors. Edwards founded the Herm Edwards Youth Foundation in 1985 as well as the Herm Edwards Youth Football Camp. The camp has allowed over one thousand kids a year to sharpen their football skills and learn valuable lessons from some of the NFL’s finest teachers.
