Colts hire Reich after McDaniels saga

Colts hire Reich after McDaniels saga

While Reich did not call plays, he along with Doug Pederson and former quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo did an outstanding job grooming Carson Wentz into the MVP-worthy quarterback he has become, while also tailoring a game plan that worked for Nick Foles when Wentz was lost for the season.

There is no doubt that Reich has was it takes to coach in the National Football League, and this decision helps answer some Maryland fans' questions as to why he maybe didn't consider jumping back to College Park as an offensive coordinator or head coach.

Team owner Jim Irsay is excited to have Reich as the latest head coach of the Colts.

Frank Reich will be the new head coach for the Indianapolis Colts, reports 24-Hour News 8's Anthony Calhoun.

Despite the ugliness of the McDaniels situation, Colts general manager Chris Ballard still went through with a previously scheduled press conference on Wednesday that was originally supposed to include McDaniels.


If Reich leaves as expected, Pederson likely would consider promoting running backs coach Duce Staley to offensive coordinator. "Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills and a commanding presence". He rose quickly through the ranks and helped mastermind the Eagles' Super Bowl victory last week over New England.

Reich retained his title until taking over as Indy's receivers' coach in 2011, then moving to Arizona in 2012, where he also coached receivers. His other experience as a coordinator came during 2014-15 with the San Diego Chargers. The Colts will have about $85 million in salary-cap space and the No. 3 overall pick in the April draft. Luck missed all of last season after having right shoulder surgery in January 2017.

"He has not picked up a football, but he is throwing balls, working on arm speed", Ballard said on February 7. I don't know if you know Andrew, but Andrew is not going to skip a step. "We want our team to match what he has inside".

According to NFL.com, Reich has agreed to terms on a five-year contract that will keep him in Indianapolis through the 2022 season.
