Eagles coordinator Frank Reich set to become Colts' head coach

The Indianapolis Colts must find a new head coach after Josh McDaniels surprisingly chose to stay in New England. "Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills, and a commanding presence".

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Reich is the favorite to take over in Indianapolis. He also served as receivers coach in Arizona and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach with the San Diego Chargers.

If Reich leaves as expected, Pederson likely would consider promoting running backs coach Duce Staley to offensive coordinator.

Reich started his coaching career with the Colts, first serving as an intern in 2006 and 2007, then becoming the team's offensive assistant from 2008-2011.

The Colts ended up hiring the winning offensive coordinator of the Super Bowl in the Eagles' Frank Reich, not the loser in McDaniels.

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. He was part of the Colts' run to the Super Bowl in 2009, leaving when Caldwell was sacked after the 2011 season. Reich shared his personal story with the audience, one of perseverance and being a man of integrity. 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. He played quarterback in the National Football League from 1985 to 1998. He led the Bills to the largest playoff rally in history in 1992, when Buffalo overcame a 32-point deficit to defeat the Houston Oilers.
