Frank Reich will be new Colts head coach, source says

Former Vikings coach Leslie Frazier interviews with Colts

The Philadelphia Eagles' offensive coordinator Frank Reich will be the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, according to NFL Networks' Mike Garafolo. He ascended to quarterbacks and wide receivers coach before leaving Indianapolis in 2012.

It has been only a week since Super Bowl LII, but things got really spicy in the last seven days with regards to the Indianapolis Colts head coaching search.

Reich comes to the Colts after New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had a late change of heart last week (more on that here). Highly respected quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo left the Eagles to become the Minnesota Vikings' next offensive coordinator.

Reich is an National Football League lifer. He played quarterback in the National Football League from 1985-98. Reich is best known as Jim Kelly's backup with the Buffalo Bills.


Reich, who led the Buffalo Bills to the biggest comeback in National Football League history against the Houston Oilers after the Bills trailed 35-3, was the beneficiary of Josh McDaniels changing his mind. It is the greatest comeback in National Football League playoff history.

The Eagles appear to be in serious danger of losing two crucial offensive coaches from their staff.

With Indianapolis having their new head coach in place, the team will turn its attention to getting Andrew Luck healthy and back on the field while also upgrading the team on both sides of the football in preparation for the 2018 NFL season. Reich could be the one calling plays come next season, or he could hire an offensive coordinator to do so.
