Official: Colts Hire Frank Reich as their New HC - Signs Five Year Deal

Frank Reich has emerged as the favorite to become the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, who are hoping to hire the Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator once they have negotiated a signed, sealed and delivered contract, league sources told ESPN.

 

Colts general manager Chris Ballard finished an intensive round of interviews Saturday with Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. Reich was interviewed Friday, and New Orleans Saints assistant head coach/tight ends coach Dan Campbell was interviewed Thursday.

 

The Colts renewed their search for a coach when New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels backed out of an agreement in principle after the team announced Tuesday that he would be introduced at a news conference Wednesday.

Colts would be fools not to get a deal done..but that Saints job might really interest him since Payton looks to be on thin ice there..I think once Brees retires,SP will hit the road.

The Colts are becoming a complete "Shhh!t Show" of an organization. If I'm Frank, I would wait one more year for a better gig.

Outside of the Bill Polian era that organization has been a hot mess since moving from Baltimore

Was listening to Polian the other day. First, he spoke up both Reich and Frazier for the job (Reich a bit more enthusiastically), then he basically how bad off the Colts are. Not saying Reich should wait and not take it, but that th Colts have virtually nothing other than Luck and are likely to be last in the division until they can completely turn over the roster.

Whoever the new HD coach is I'll be rooting for the new coach to succeed (except when they play us).  That was such a Josh McDaniels thing to do.  Hopefully Luck is ready to go next year as the league is better with him playing.

....the Colts having nothing but Luck might make them more likely to trade their pick to us imo :thumbsup:

Why would any coach play the waiting game, especially for the Saints? 

 

The Colts have a young star QB right now and the ability to draft another if they so choose.

 

Reich would need his head examined if he turned down the Colts to wait for a very much unguaranteed job with another organization.

Congrats to Frank. He has served his time deserves his chance. I think it was the best hire for the Colts and it means we get to keep Frazier and continuity on defense. 

 

I think Ballard and Reich will right Indy.... but it is not a quick turnaround.

Colts are one of the luckiest franchises. I would rather have Reich over McDaniels as a head coach every time. 

 

I think he is a much better fit for what Indy needs. They need cerebral in my opinion. That's why I saw the sense in the Frazier interview as well.

Awesome! So happy for Frank Reich! 

 

I think Andrew Luck will be happy with this hire... 

 

Ill always remember Jim Kelly and other SB era Bills talking about how important Reich was to that team, and especially to Kelly himself. I remember Jim saying what a huge role Frank played in helping him prepare for opponents (and stuff like that).
