Eagles OC Frank Reich Emerges as Favorite for Colts HC Job

Eagles OC Frank Reich Emerges as Favorite for Colts HC Job

With Reich now in place as their head coach, the Colts will hope he can help them replicate what the Eagles did to the Patriots when they face New England in Foxborough next season.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard was left to explain the embarrassing circumstances in which McDaniels reneged on a deal.

"As the role of offensive coordinator, that's what you do: you coordinate", Reich said. DeFilippo replaces Pat Shurmur, who is now the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.

After Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels backed out of the job, Indianapolis' front office went back to their search.

CDU delegates will get their own chance to vote on the coalition deal at a party congress on February 24. This had prompted unrest within Merkel's conservative ranks.

Reich, who didn't call plays with the Eagles, began his coaching career as an offensive staff assistant with former Colts coach Jim Caldwell in 2008 after retiring from playing 10 years earlier. Five-year deal with the team has been agreed to and about to be finalized, source says. 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 helped develop Carson Wentz into a star and turn Nick Foles into a quality starting quarterback. Hopefully Reich won't also bail on the Colts at the last second like McDaniels did. The Eagles have also suffered two big losses to their staff since the Super Bowl.

Losing Reich would create a void at offensive coordinator for the Eagles.

Landing Reich after such an accomplishment is notable for the Colts after the McDaniels drama.

The Colts might actually stumble into a better hire than originally thought.
