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

Recommended Posts

Congratulations to Frank.

 

For the Colts, it seems to me that the lines of the Stones song are quite apt "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might just find, you get what you need".

 

Now and then, you just get a feeling about someone, that they are the right guy for the job, and I've thought that Frank would make a good HC for a few years now. Providing it's not at the Bills expense, I hope he proves me right. ;)

But but Frank had to move his family from the west coast to the east coast and now to the “Midwest” again.  

 

He must have retained his connections from his time there  ~10 years ago.

Good move. I'm really pulling for Indianapolis now, I think Reich is the right man for the job, may actually be a better coach than McDaniels.

So it seems like Leslie Frazier was a Rooney Rule interview. The good thing is we get to keep him!  He did a great job with the defense last year.

Frazier will get his chance soon, he is a good coach. If our defense improves, he'll get offers I'm sure.

No. Doug Pederson called plays. 

 

That's what I thought. I wonder if he'll try to do that for the Colts or have his OC do it.

I don't think that's necessarily true. I'm almost positive that they already satisfied the Rooney rule before McDaniles was to be hired.

 

Frazier has connections to Indy and with Chris Ballard pretty dead set on running a Tampa 2 defense, Frazier would have been a very good fit, which is most likely why he got the interview.

I really don’t get the hype for this guy. I’m guessing he won’t last long.

 

Based on what, exactly?

I read that they had been talking to Darrell Bevell about becoming the OC for awhile.  Not sure where that stands with the hiring of Reich.

Frazier was to make the owner happy. He never was getting the job. He won't be a HC in this league again

I feel extremely fortunate and could not be more excited for Colts Nation and the future of our franchise."

He worked with Wentz and Foles, played in the NFL for a decade, played in the playoffs as a player, won a Super Bowl as a coach. He has a pretty good resume, doubt he'll ever have a hard time finding work.

....he's rubbed elbows with some pretty good pedigree along the way....Dungy, Caldwell, Whisenhunt and now Pederson as a QB Coach, WR Coach as well as OC stint..........
