Colts announce Frank Reich as new head coach

Colts announce Frank Reich as new head coach

Sirianni worked with Reich during their time together in San Diego from 2013-15.

As it turns out, the Colts may have gotten a better fit with Reich anyway. "He's paid his dues in the business both as a player and a coach".

You'll get no arguments on the latter. Frank Reich didn't get much attention when you saw all that happened with all the coaches there... "I look forward to working with Frank to deliver a championship-caliber team to the city of Indianapolis". "He doesn't get bored with the little things".

Doug Pederson, whose bold offensive mind was on full display in the Super Bowl, hired Reich to be his OC when he took the Eagles job in 2016.

And when your work ethic can hang with Peyton Manning's worth ethic - "a grinder", Manning once called Reich - you're equipped to handle the daily rigors a head-coaching gig in the National Football League demands. Next man up, as they say. He had Carson Wentz looking like a potential MVP candidate until his season-ending knee injury. But after the Eagles' stunning victory in the Super Bowl, in which they scored 41 points against a Bill Belichick defense, Reich truly was a solid backup choice, someone Polian called "the best of the bargain".

One of the biggest questions for the Colts heading into 2018 revolves around the health of Andrew Luck.

And the Colts already have three assistants on Reich's staff - probable defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, Mike Phair and Dave DeGuglielmo. Considering Luck's intellect and versatility, not to mention his leaky offensive line, it could do wonders for the QB.

Ultimately, Indianapolis chose to go with Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich as their head coach instead, who had coached with the Colts before between 2008 and 2011, but this hasn't stopped some players from having ill feelings towards New England's offensive coordinator. Initially, Pedersen's hiring in Philadelphia was roundly criticized.

Reich, meanwhile, returns to the franchise where he started his coaching career as an intern in 2006. "He's a good guy". That doesn't necessarily win games, but it does go a long way in calming the storm the Colts found themselves in a week ago.

Polian was then asked by Dakich, "How involved were you?"

Instead, the Colts have a guy with a track record of getting the most out of young quarterbacks; not someone who can ride on Tom Brady's coattails.

Call Star reporter Zak Keefer at and follow him on.

On December 31, Colts Owner Jim Irsay, General Manager Chris Ballard and the rest of the Indianapolis brass wasted no time in dismissing former coach Chuck Pagano and ultimately hitting the reset button in search of a new coach.
