Frank Reich will be new Colts head coach, source says

Colts reportedly have Frank Reich as their favorite for HC

Reich emerged as the leader for the Colts job after McDaniels turned it down after last minute on Tuesday.

According to ESPN, offensive coordinator Frank Reich has become the favorite to land the Indianapolis Colts' head coaching job.

Reich was a former Colts' QB coach and was instrumental in the development of Peyton Manning. 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. The Colts also interviewed New Orleans Saints assistant head coach/tight ends Dan Campbell and Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. He played collegiately at Maryland and then played in the National Football League for more than a decade. His greatest game was the 1992 AFC Wild Card game, where he quarterbacked the Bills to victory after overcoming a 35-3 deficit to win 41-38 in overtime.

Reich makes a ton of sense for the Colts, who already have a quarterback in place and need an offensive minded head coach to come in and save their franchise player.

Losing Reich would create a void at offensive coordinator for the Eagles. Reich began his coaching career in Indianapolis.

Reich had spent the last four years as National Football League offensive coordinator with the then San Diego Chargers (2014-15) and the Eagles (2016-17).
