Nick Sirianni, head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, is on the verge of a pinnacle NFL moment. His Eagles will be battling with the Kansas City Chiefs, Sirianni's former employer, for the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl LVII in Arizona after winning the NFC East, storming through the playoffs, and beating the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. Can Jalen Hurts overcome Patrick Mahomes and help Sirianni to the NFL's Promised land? Regardless of the outcome of any game, let alone the Super Bowl, Nick Sirianni's wife, Brett Ashley Cantwell, always has his back.
A Coach and A Husband
Head coach Nick Sirianni grew up in Jamestown, New York, where he went to Southwestern Central High School. He then attended Mount Union for college, before beginning his coaching career the year after graduating.
He met the love of his life for the first time while working in Kansas City, Missouri, as the Chiefs offensive quality control coach, which makes Super Bowl LVII quite the full circle moment, even if Andy Reid did fire him. Nick Sirianni's wife Brett Ashley Cantwell has been willing to move around for Nick's career. Together they share three children, Jacob, Miles, and Taylor. Since meeting, the Sirianni family has moved around for Nick's work with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts as Offensive Coordinator, and now the Philadelphia Eagles as their head coach.
Giving up a former career as a teacher
Brett is a former school teacher. Her teaching career took a back seat once she realized things were serious with her future husband. At the time, he was a wide receiver NFL coach, and there's never a guarantee in the National Football League that you'll stay in one place for a long period of time. As she told colts.com, while living in Indianapolis, "I loved my job. I loved everything about Kansas City. But I loved Nick more. So, it was all worth it."
It's not uncommon for wives and partners of players and coaches to upend their lives to support them. Here's hoping it's not a Tom Brady and Gisele story, with an eventual unhappy ending. But for now, it seems, Brett Ashley Cantwell has done what she can to be the perfect partner for Nick Sirianni. And while not much is know about her, we're sure that as long as the Eagles keep winning, more and more fans will want to know her story.
