Frank Reich to be named next Colts' head coach

  • Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich speaks with members of the media during a news conference at the team's NFL football training facility in Philadelphia Tuesday Dec. 12 2017

With Reich now in place as their head coach, the Colts will hope he can help them replicate what the Eagles did to the Patriots when they face New England in Foxborough next season.

Reich actually started his coaching career with the Colts in 2006 as an intern after a long career in the National Football League as a backup QB.

Timing is everything, and Reich was the hottest candidate at the moment McDaniels backed out.

"As the role of offensive coordinator, that's what you do: you coordinate", Reich said.




Reich, 56, began his coaching career in Indianapolis when he served as an offensive coaching staff assistant for the Colts in 2008 before moving up to quarterbacks coach in 2009. Garafolo reported the two sides agreed to a five-year deal (though, as we learned this week, nothing is completely official until a contract is signed). Reich was the hot name after the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl. Manning has reportedly endorsed Reich as Colts head coach. He helped Nick Foles win the Super Bowl MVP. Eagles coach Doug Pederson calls the plays but Reich was instrumental in orchestrating the offense too. The Eagles have also suffered two big losses to their staff since the Super Bowl.

Meanwhile, Colts officials will be in Atlanta on Monday to pay their respects to Edwin Jackson, the 26-year-old linebacker who was killed in a drunken driving crash on February 4.

Last week, the Colts officially announced that they had hired Josh McDaniels, only to have McDaniels back out and decide to remain the Patriots' offensive coordinator. He's going to do everything right to get himself ready to play, and I'm very confident, he's very confident, that he's going to come back and prove a lot of people wrong.

The Colts might actually stumble into a better hire than originally thought.
