House Family Excited to Watch Son Coach in Super Bowl
HARRISON — Super Bowl LIV is on Sunday, with the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers ready to compete for the title. One Harrison family has strong ties to the game, with their son coaching the Chiefs linebackers.
Harrison High School alum Matt House will complete his first season with the Chiefs on the biggest stage in football. He came to Kansas City after being with the University of Kentucky football program for three years, including two seasons as their defensive coordinator.
His parents, Tom and Cathy, live in Harrison still, and they cannot wait to watch their son coach on the biggest stage.
“We’re really excited that he’s getting that opportunity. That’s something that any coach in the NFL hopes one day they’ll get an opportunity to coach in the Super Bowl,” Tom House said. “I’m sure he’s excited, nervous. I think a lot of the coaching staff there is really hopeful that their head coach gets an opportunity to win a Super Bowl because Coach (Andy) Reid’s been around a long time.”
It’s an exciting time for the whole House family, as another son will return home this week for the first time in two years. He had been teaching in Taiwan.
The Super Bowl is on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on Local 32.
