Andrew Robert Heck (born January 1, 1967) is a former professional football player, an offensive lineman in the National Football League for the Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, and Washington Redskins. He played twelve seasons in the NFL and is the current offensive line coach for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Born in Fargo, North Dakota, Heck attended W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, Virginia, a suburb southwest of Washington, D.C.. He enrolled at the University of Notre Dame, where he helped lead the Fighting Irish to a national championship in 1988 under head coach Lou Holtz. Heck was a first round selection of the Seattle Seahawks in the 1989 NFL Draft, the fifteenth overall pick, and signed a five-year contract exceeding $2.7 million following a one-week holdout.[1]

After five years in Seattle, he signed with the Bears in 1994 for $10 million over four years.[2] After five seasons, Heck was released by new head coach Dick Jauron in June 1999, and played his final two seasons with the Washington Redskins.

Assistant coach

Heck moved into coaching and spent three years at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, starting with two years as a graduate assistant. He moved to the NFL as an assistant coach in 2004.
