  • Colts reportedly have Frank Reich as their favorite for HC

The Colts thought they were locked into getting Josh McDaniels as their next head coach. Reich began his coaching career in Indianapolis.

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich has reportedly agreed on a deal to be the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Ballard made the right, better move by making the call to hire Reich.

Reich has spent the past two seasons as the Eagles offensive coordinator and helped lead them to their first Super Bowl title last Sunday. Pairing Reich with Andrew Luck could make for a risky combination, leading the offense to return to its previous level of success. For a team that won the Super Bowl with a lot of key backups, Reich, with a playing background similar to that of Pederson, provided both motivation and inspiration.

In addition to Reich, The Eagles lost quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, who went to Minnesota to serve as the Vikings' offensive coordinator.

Head coach Doug Pederson was the offensive play caller in Philadelphia, but Reich played an integral role in developing game plans and working with the quarterbacks. He worked as Indy's wide receivers coach in 2011 after Manning missed the season because of injury.




Buffalo Bills Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazier was recently interviewed as a candidate for the position.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

NJ.com reported on how this will have a major impact on the Eagles' coaching staff a week after their Super Bowl victory.

Reich's path in National Football League coaching has featured a lot of faith and determination, two things the Colts need with Luck. He seems like the type of person who would be willing to work with those Colts assistant coaches who were recently hired under the expectations McDaniels would be the coach.

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