Colts Hire Frank Reich

Colts Hire Frank Reich

Frank Reich will reportedly be the Colts' next head coach.

Reich has the challenge of coaching quarterback Andrew Luck, who missed the entire 2017 season due to a nagging shoulder injury, back to his form before the injury.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported earlier Sunday that Reich was the favorite to be the Colts' consolation prize after Indianapolis was spurned by Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels last week.

An official announcement on Reich's hiring should come soon.

Reich worked for the Colts as an offensive coaching staff assistant under Tony Dungy, then served as quarterbacks coach and wide receivers coach under Jim Caldwell.

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich is also a top candidate and seems to be the most likely to be hired. Pairing Reich with Andrew Luck could make for a unsafe combination, leading the offense to return to its previous level of success. Nick Foles stepped in and threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the NFC Championship Game win over the Minnesota Vikings and 373 yards and three touchdowns in the Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots.

A week after Josh McDaniels turned the Indianapolis Colts, the team appears to have found their next head coach. Although Reich did not call plays himself in Philadelphia this season, he was vitally important to the team. He was part of the Colts' run to the Super Bowl in 2009, leaving when Caldwell was sacked after the 2011 season. Multiple assistant coaches signed contracts thinking they would work under McDaniels. He played collegiately at Maryland and then played in the National Football League for more than a decade. Reich helped rally the Bills back from a 35-3 third-quarter deficit.

Reich, 56, brings a wealth of offensive experience to the organization.
