After the Philadelphia Eagles progressed to the Super Bowl, head coach Nick Sirianni took a press conference alongside his three children.
When the San Francisco 49ers were defeated by the Eagles, it was only expected that the team would hold a press conference to discuss the substantial win. Sirianni brought his three kids to the podium during the conference, and unfortunately for him, only two of them could contain their restlessness.
Taylor, who was born in 2017, quickly began mimicking her father’s facial expressions and hand gestures. Once the NFL coach caught on, he told his daughter, “Taylor, stop it.” However, the moment was caught on film and caught the attention of fans around the world.
Although the moment was widely adored, the head coach’s children were not the reason for holding the press conference. More specifically, the Philadelphia Eagles are set to face off against the Kansas City Chiefs this upcoming Sunday.
The Super Bowl will surely be an intense battle, but it is also worth noting this is not the first time Nick Sirianni and Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid have crossed paths. In fact, Reid fired Sirianni from the franchise in 2013.

“When I came here [to Kansas City], I was told Nick Sirianni is a really special coach, but I had David,” Reid said of the situation. “David was my assistant head coach, and he had been with me for 14 years, and so he was coming with me.”
The decision to let the veteran coach go was not intended to be malicious, which is something the Eagles leader recognized.”It was just kind of receiving my fate there,” he began, recalling his time with the Kansas City Chiefs franchise.
“I didn’t get a chance to pick his brain at all on anything like that, but got a ton of respect for Coach Reid and who he is as a person and who he is as a coach,” he said, sharing nothing but positive remarks in regards to his opposing coach.
“His record speaks for itself, but you talk to anybody, and they think even higher of him as a person. Do I know him all that well? No. But I have a high amount of respect for him,” Sirianni added.
