Amid Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce‘s blooming romance, Chiefs coach Andy Reid joked that he deserves some bragging rights. After all, he knew the pop star first.


“I knew her from Philadelphia, her dad was a big NFL fan,” Reid said in a recent episode of Donovan McNabb’s OutKick. “So I had met her when she was real young, and her dad.”

Swift and Kelce’s love story has been playing out in front of the whole world in recent weeks, fueled by the “Anti-Hero” singer’s string of appearances at Chiefs games (where she’s often seen sharing a box suite with the tight end’s parents). Shortly after she originally broke the internet by attending her first game at Arrowhead Stadium in September, Reid quipped in a post-game press conference that he had set the pair up before quickly walking away.

“I joked about setting Kelce up, and, you know, I’m just saying!” Reid recalled Tuesday (Oct. 17), laughing.

“She’s a good girl, she’s into it,” he added. “We’re glad she’s here.” 

Reid is far from the only NFL pro with a claim to fame regarding the pair, though. Long before Kelce and Swift started dating, sports commentator Erin Andrews had taken to her podcast Calm Down, which she co-hosts with Charissa Thompson, to publicly ask the “Karma” musician to “please try our friend Travis.”

“Take us up on this — go on a date with this guy,” she’d added in the August episode, which dropped not long after Kelce first confessed that he’d tried unsuccessfully to give Swift his phone number at an Eras Tour show.

After reports surfaced that he and the 12-time Grammy winner may be dating, Kelce himself commented under one of Andrews and Thompson’s posts, “😂😂 You two are something else!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I owe you big time!!” 

Andrews recently opened up about her role in getting the pair together on TODAY, joking that she’s “the new Bumble.” “He’s got a glow to him,” she added as she reacted to photos of Kelce and Swift holding hands. “That’s a glow up, girls. He looks fantastic.”
