Reich agrees to become Colts HC

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

Reich and DeFilippo built arguably the top quarterbacks room in the league in two years with the Eagles.

Ballard interviewed Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier on Saturday.

It has been only a week since Super Bowl LII, but things got really spicy in the last seven days with regards to the Indianapolis Colts head coaching search. He wouldn't be given the job on that day, but a coaching career that has now spanned ten-plus years has, apparently, led him to the position of head coach. A Colts team built around defense would look very different than in recent years, but three straight years of missing the playoffs warrants a change.

After San Diego, where Reich did call the plays, he moved on to the Eagles, where he's been the offensive coordinator each of the last 2 seasons. The Eagles have also suffered two big losses to their staff since the Super Bowl.

There's no question Reich has helped develop quarterbacks on a variety of levels with the Chargers and Eagles. The key for the Colts, though, will be the health of quarterback Andrew Luck. Campbell is known for his authority and the discipline of his teams. Reich, if he's hired, is a second choice. He worked with Peyton Manning while on Tony Dungy's staff back in 2008 and stayed with the Colts until 2011.

The Colts couldn't have the losing offensive coordinator in Super Bowl LII, so they'll settle on the victor. His offense exposed the weaknesses of the Patriots on defense, which is tough to do against Bill Belichick.

Reich could be the flawless head coach to best understand how to use Andrew Luck. But this promotion has been a long time coming for the veteran coach. This is one of the few knocks on him as a quarterback.

No matter which direction the Colts decide to go in terms of a head coach, the future looks bright in Indianapolis.

Frank Reich getting the Indianapolis Colts head coaching job this offseason might have been even more improbable than his most famous football moment.
