Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich to become the Indianapolis Colts head coach

NFL Coaching Tracker Colts hire Frank Reich as head coach

The team on Sunday announced they have hired the Eagles offensive coordinator as Indianapolis' new head coach. Luck may still be on the mend from his shoulder injury, but landing Reich would be an outstanding hire for the Colts to make.

"He said he had bad news for me".

In Reich, the Colts would be satisfying the offensive mind that they need with defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus already in place. From 2008-11, Reich cut his National Football League coaching teeth with the Colts, first as an offensive assistant (2008), then as Peyton Manning's quarterback coach (2009-10) and finally working with wide receivers in 2011, when Manning missed the season to undergo neck surgery and the Colts' 2-14 mark positioned them to select Andrew Luck with the first overall pick the following spring. He did the same with Nick Foles, who went on to be the Super Bowl MVP, and inspired the same kind of confidence in Nate Sudfeld.

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.

Rachel Brand, No. 3 official in Justice Department, to step down
Rachel Brand , the associate attorney general, will leave the DOJ for a job in the private sector, according to the report . Brand will oversee Walmart's legal department, in addition to ethics, compliance, and global investigations.

After interviewing with the Colts on Friday, the former assistant under Tony Dungy and Jim Caldwell looks to be returning to Indianapolis in a far grander role. Eagles coach Doug Pederson calls the plays but Reich was instrumental in orchestrating the offense too. Implementing Reich's offensive system would likely eliminate many of these unnecessary hits and help to keep the Colts' best player on the field.

Reich can draw on his experiences as a former quarterback both in dealing with quarterback issues and in play calling. His greatest game was the 1992 AFC Wild Card game, where he quarterbacked the Bills to victory after overcoming a 35-3 deficit to win 41-38 in overtime.

Reich's mission is to rebuild the confidence of Luck, who didn't play at all a year ago due to shoulder surgery and has missed 26 of 48 games the past three seasons. Ballard acknowledged there was no signed agreement with McDaniels.
