Colts make it official, hire Frank Reich as new head coach

He's the Colts' choice after an expedited second search commenced following Josh McDaniels' decision to back out on Tuesday night.

Stay with the Eagles - where he was a fan favorite player and interviewed for the head coach vacancy in 2016 - and move up the ladder, possibly to offensive coordinator.

Reich would be returning to the team that gave him his National Football League start as a coach.

According to the NFL Network, Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich agreed to terms on a five-year contract to the Indianapolis Colts' new head coach. McDaniels called Colts general manager Chris Ballard later that evening and reneged on the agreement, saying he chose to stay with New England.

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

That means the Eagles have lost their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach (new Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo) since winning Super Bowl LII. "Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills and a commanding presence. I feel extremely fortunate and could not be more excited for Colts Nation and the future of our franchise".

Reich, 56, began his coaching career in Indianapolis when he served as an offensive coaching staff assistant for the Colts in 2008 before moving up to the quarterbacks coach in 2009. Reich worked as the Colts' wide receivers coach in 2011 after Manning missed the season because of injury. His other experience as a coordinator came during 2014-15 with the San Diego Chargers. The Colts will have about $85 million in salary-cap space and the No. 3 overall pick in the April draft. To be fair, a large reason for the lack of production was the fact quarterback Andrew Luck was sidelined for the entire campaign with injury. Luck, who has not thrown a football since the middle of October, is now in southern California working with a throwing expert.

Although no contract has been agreed upon, it's being widely reported that Reich is now the favorite and most likely to sign on the dotted line.
