Former NFL Head Coach; ESPN Analyst
Career Highlights: Former NFL head coach and player Herm Edwards joined ESPN in 2009 as an NFL studio analyst. Edwards appears primarily on NFL Live, SportsCenter, Audibles and ESPN Radio, while also contributing to ESPN’s annual NFL Draft coverage. Edwards spent eight years as an NFL head coach with the New York Jets (2001-05) and Kansas City Chiefs (2006-08). He led his teams to four playoff appearances, including 2004 when his Jets squad finished with a 10-6 regular season record and advanced to the AFC Divisional Playoffs. Edwards, who also guided the Chiefs to a Wild Card berth in 2006, is one of only four NFL coaches to lead two different teams to the playoffs in his first season as head coach with those teams. Prior to coaching, Edwards played defensive back in the NFL with Philadelphia, Los Angeles Rams and Atlanta. He was involved in “Miracle at the Meadowlands,” a memorable NFL play where he scooped up a Giants fumble with no time remaining and ran 26 yards for a touchdown to give Philadelphia a 19-17 win over New York in 1978. Edwards was a leader on Philadelphia’s Super Bowl XV team.
