Pegguy Arphexad, Dean Gordon (pictured), Onandi Lowe, Barry Quinn and Gavin Ward will not have their contracts renewed by The Sky Blues while Michael Briscoe, Ruaidhri Higgins, Avun Jephcott and Hussain Yazdani will not receive new deals once their contracts expire next month.
Reid, meanwhile, is in contract talks with striker Julian Joachim and defender Richard Shaw while the club are waiting to see if former loanees Stephen Warnock and Bjarni Gudjonsson will come available for next season.
Both players spent time on loan with Coventry this past season and assistant manager Adrian Heath admitted it is up to the pair to decide their futures.
"Stephen is in the process of talking to (parent club) Liverpool," Heath told the club's official website.
"He has been offered something by them and I think he is looking to confirm that to get a better idea of what they can give him.
"If he doesn't agree terms with them I don't know whether we could afford him and I don't suppose he knows where he would be just yet until he knows which other clubs are available.
"Bjarni has gone back to Germany to try and sort something out with Bochum regarding his contract, which would then maybe allow him to leave on a free."
