Colts reportedly have Frank Reich as their favorite for HC

The search for a new head coach following the Josh McDaniels debacle is over for the Indianapolis Colts.

Former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator and former Buffalo Bills quarterback Frank Reich has agreed to become the Indianapolis Colts' head coach, according to the NFL.

And the Colts had no problem poking fun at themselves. "You take all the great resources that you have as far as the staff and our head coach, and you pile your ideas together and then you've got to narrow them down and that's what we do".

Like a lot of professional coaches, Reich started on the other side of the field, on the field. The former backup quarterback for the Bills was hired as a coaching intern in Indianapolis in 2006 and wound staying with the organization until 2012. Losing both Reich and DeFilippo would disrupt a coaching staff that helped the Eagles to the Super Bowl, although it's one of the consequences of success. Multiple assistant coaches signed contracts thinking they would work under McDaniels. He also has a stellar reputation, and his myriad of life experiences and the people he has worked with make him the flawless fit for us and our fans.

Reich spent four seasons as an assistant coach in Indianapolis before moving on the Cardinals, Chargers and Eagles, spending the last two seasons as Philadelphia's offensive coordinator.

Losing Reich would create a void at offensive coordinator for the Eagles. The key for the Colts, though, will be the health of quarterback Andrew Luck.

Luck did miss the entire 2017 season, but his absence should not have left that big of a hole in the team. "He's not going to skip a step".

His quarterback experience goes way back to College Park, where he backed up Boomer Esiason for three seasons. I'm very proud of the kid - wouldn't want anybody else on our team.

NFL Network insider Mike Garafalo first reported that the hire was official.
