Sanaa Zinab Kaid is the wife of the Jet’s head coach Robert Saleh. Just like her husband Robert, Sanaa Saleh is also a Muslim.

There is little to no information about Robert’s wife, Sanaa, as she likes to distance herself from the online world and the paparazzi lenses.

Despite this, we’ve come to know that both Saleh and his wife Sanaa attended Fordson High School.

So, it can be assumed that they might have known each other since high school. Additionally, there is this possibility that the two might have started dating in high school.
