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

Wow! The Colts hired Rusty Jones out of retirement.

 

 

Rusty Jones: Jones has 28 years of NFL experience with the Chicago Bears (2005-2012) and Buffalo Bills (1985-2004). A pioneer in the strength and conditioning field, Jones was named the recipient of the 2016 NFL strength and conditioning Lifetime Achievement award.

 

Jones was named 2006 National Professional Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year by the Professional Football Strength and Conditioning Coaches Society in February of 2007. The award recognized his proficiency at enacting his renowned conditioning and nutrition program upon his arrival in Chicago.

 

As one of the most well-respected strength, conditioning and nutrition experts in the business, Jones’ philosophy focuses on designing specific nutritional and workout programs for each individual player on the roster to maximize their performance while maintaining year-round health. His approach takes nutrition and body composition down to the molecular level and is based on what players do at their position.

 

Damn I have been advocating Bills sign him as a consultant since he retired from Bears.

 

He left the Bills because he was not hands on enough with promotion - I wonder if he will be more hands on with this director position?

Yes when Ruben went to Bears he told them that Rusty was unhappy there after promotion and to get him.

Chicago at time had a lot of players with soft injuries and for next few years number of injuries went down while injuries for Bills went up.

REICH MAN FOR THE JOB: Why the Colts ended up with the perfect coach

The Indianapolis Colts didn't land their first choice as a head coach, but they might've lucked into a better option to build a championship team. While most of the talk in Indy has centered on Andrew Luck and the uncertainty surrounding his health and game, I believe Frank Reich's commitment to building a true team will give the Colts a chance to win at a high level, with or without No. 12 on the field.

 

"This game isn't built on any one player," Reich said at his introductory press conference on Tuesday. "[Luck] is magical. He is special. He has unique traits and abilities that I respect as much as anybody. I can't wait to work with him. But if we're going to win a Super Bowl -- and that's a plan -- it's going to be about surrounding our whole team and about how we're going to bring about the best in each other."

 

Now, I know that sounds like pie-in-the-sky optimism that runs counter to the "quarterback is everything" conversation that normally takes place, but football is a team game where the supporting cast routinely elevates the play of the quarterback. As I've stated on many occasions, quarterbacks are categorized as either "trucks" (QB carries the team) or "trailers" (team carries the QB), with the overwhelming majority of the league falling into the latter category.
