Eagles’ Reid muses on former pupil Pollack

Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 30, 2010 – 11:46 am

Texans assistant offensive line coach Frank Pollack played under Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid at Northern Arizona University, something I asked Reid about in his conference call with Houston reporters this morning.

Reid was the Lumberjacks’ offensive line coach for one season, 1986. It was Pollack’s freshman year out of Greenway High School in Phoenix.

“Frank… you know that little scowl he gets on his face?”  Reid mused. “That was even more pronounced back then. He was a tough, tough nut. He started for me as a freshman, so he really was a tough son-of-a-gun and loved to hit.”

Pollack was a four-year letter winner at NAU, earning Associated Press All-America honors after his senior season in 1989. He was drafted in the sixth round by the San Francisco 49ers in 1990 and spent eight seasons as an offensive lineman with the 49ers and Denver Broncos. He’s now in his fourth season as a Texans coach.

“I’m very proud of him,” Reid said. “I was proud of him as a player and where he went as a player and now as a coach, and he’s in great hands there with Gary (Kubiak).”
