Frank Reich will be new Colts head coach, source says

The Colts renewed their search for a head coach after New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels' stunning decision to back out of an agreement in principle after the team announced last Tuesday that he would be introduced at a news conference Wednesday. While Eagles head coach Doug Pederson gets most of the credit for the team's offensive success, Reich was also instrumental in helping the team remain in contention even after Carson Wentz went down. He then spent time with the Arizona Cardinals and San Diego Chargers, with two seasons as the Chargers offensive coordinator before moving onto the Eagles.

Reich, who has more than a quarter-century of National Football League experience as a player and coach, was hired by Eagles coach Doug Pederson in 2016 to run his offense. The deal is in the process of being finalized. He was the architect of the Eagles Super Bowl winning offense.

Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills, and a commanding presence.

While unorthodox, a portion of Reich's staff already is in place. The former backup quarterback for the Bills was hired as a coaching intern in Indianapolis in 2006 and wound staying with the organization until 2012.




In his two seasons as the quarterbacks coach he helped guide Peyton Manning to the playoffs, including their 2009 Super Bowl loss to the New Orleans Saints.

ESPN first reported earlier Sunday that Reich was the favourite for the job. Luck missed all of last season after having right shoulder surgery in January 2017.

Reich, 56, emerged as the favorite for the job after meeting with Colts general manager Chris Ballard on Friday. I don't know if you know Andrew, but Andrew is not going to skip a step.
