Garrett Reid was found dead Sunday morning in his dorm room at Lehigh University where he was assisting the team's strength and conditioning coach during training camp.
Andy Reid said Wednesday that coming back is "the right thing to do." He plans to coach the preseason opener against Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
He said, "I'm a football coach. That's what I do. My son wouldn't want it any other way. He loved the Philadelphia Eagles."
More than 900 people, including NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, general managers and coaches from other teams and current and former players, attended the funeral service Tuesday.
Reid says the outpouring of support from fans and people around the NFL was a "humbling" experience.
