Colts to introduce Frank Reich as head coach

Colts to introduce Frank Reich as head coach

It's still the biggest comeback in National Football League history.

And Frank Reich has the Super Bowl championship gear to prove it.

After starting his career at the University of Mount Union, his college alma mater, the 1999 Southwestern Central School graduate later coached at Division II Indiana University-Pennsylvania before joining the Kansas City Chiefs' staff under head coach Todd Haley in 2009.

When asked by former Colts punter Pat McAfee whether he loves or hates McDaniels, the Patriots offensive coordinator whom Reich's Eagles just downed in Super Bowl LII, and who spurned the Colts to create Reich's first head-coaching opportunity, Reich dialed up the ideal response.

This time, team owner Jim Irsay made sure the Colts werent caught off-guard again.

As it turns out, the Colts may have gotten a better fit with Reich anyway. Fans were wary on twitter all day as reports began to emerge with Reich agreeing telling friends and family he was taking the Colts job.

What Reich has in his favor is that he spent the past two seasons watching how Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson handled the role of being the head coach and playcaller while Reich had the title of offensive coordinator, with duties including putting together the game plan each week. The Colts were 4-12 last season and have missed the playoffs three years in a row.

Reich, in contrast, has been a position coach with Manning and Phillip Rivers as well as Larry Fitzgerald and Reggie Wayne. But instead, he took a backup quarterback and turned him into a Super Bowl MVP.

On Sunday, the Colts announced that they have officially agreed to terms with former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich. The Colts hired three coaches who were supposed to coach under McDaniels, and all three of those coaches will be keeping their job under Reich.


"We will be the toughest team both mentally and physically".

The Celtics have also taken the step of naming the tunnel between the Celtics locker room and TD Garden court the Paul Pierce Tunnel.

Ballard didnt even have to make a hard sales pitch. For Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, this is great news.

On Wednesday, Ballard said Luck still hasn't thrown a football since October.

The Colts introductory press conference of Frank Reich will be today at 3:30pm EST.

"I will call the plays", Reich said.

And he intends to show the Colts he should have been their first choice all along.

"No. Absolutely not. Conversely, I went to Jim only because I was so shocked when I happened to get off a plane in Hartford, Connecticut and my phone blew up with people calling and asking for comments".

"It's a short window to get prepared because nobody saw it coming".
