Colts to hire Eagles Frank Reich as new head coach

Colts to hire Eagles Frank Reich as new head coach

The Colts interviewed a few candidates for the job following McDaniels' decision to pass on the opportunity and return to the New England Patriots. "I look forward to working with Frank to deliver a championship-caliber team to the city of Indianapolis".

Reich and DeFilippo built arguably the top quarterbacks room in the league in two years with the Eagles.

After interviewing with the Colts on Friday, the former assistant under Tony Dungy and Jim Caldwell looks to be returning to Indianapolis in a far grander role.

It's likely easy for Colts fans to envision a high-flying offense with Luck at the helm considering what Reich did with Foles on the sport's biggest stage.

The Colts were spurned by Josh McDaniels, which sent them to the market again but it seems they have an agreement as the final touches of the contract are being finished on a reported five-year deal. The 56-year-old assistant had been with Philly since 2016. Reich could be the one calling plays come next season, or he could hire an offensive coordinator to do so. After that, he went to the Cardinals as their wide receivers coach, and then to the Chargers as the quarterbacks coach. He was part of the Colts' run to the Super Bowl in 2009, leaving when Caldwell was sacked after the 2011 season. They need a man who can be taken at his word, who says what he means and means what he says. None of those things means he'll be a great head football coach, but it should reflect that he'll be upfront and honest in dealing with management and players. Reich is most known for leading the Bills in the "The Comeback" game, a 41-38 overtime victory over the Oilers in AFC wild-card playoff game.

Reich's mission is to rebuild the confidence of Luck, who didn't play at all previous year due to shoulder surgery and has missed 26 of 48 games the past three seasons. Numerous play calls were created to get the ball out of Foles' hands quickly in order to beat the pass rush, something that Andrew Luck would benefit from. Could he be the right choice?
