Take two: Frank Reich will be Indianapolis Colts' new head coach

11 February 2018

The Colts were spurned by Josh McDaniels, which sent them to the market again but it seems they have an agreement as the final touches of the contract are being finished on a reported five-year deal.

His first coaching job was with the Colts in 2006.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Colts hired Frank Reich as their head coach on a five-year deal.

This comes after Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the Colts brought Reich in for an interview after McDaniels elected to stay with the Patriots instead of taking the Indianapolis position.

Frank Reich will reportedly be the Colts' next head coach.

Reich worked with the Colts as their QB coach when Peyton Manning was there. He ascended to quarterbacks and wide receivers coach before leaving Indianapolis in 2012. He played quarterback in the National Football League from 1985-98. Reich was previously an offensive assistant for the Colts from 2008 through 2011.

Reich, who led the Buffalo Bills to the biggest comeback in National Football League history against the Houston Oilers after the Bills trailed 35-3, was the beneficiary of Josh McDaniels changing his mind. Reich also served as the then San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator from 2014-15 before joining Doug Pederson's staff in the same role with Philadelphia back in 2016.

The loss of Reich and DeFilippo would leave the Eagles in need of both an offensive coordinator and quarterback coach.

The hiring hasn't been announced officially.
