The Indianapolis Colts thought they had a Super Bowl assistant coach locked up to be their head coach. Josh McDaniels, who initially agreed to be the Head Coach, backed out after speaking with New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick.
With McDaniels out of the picture, the Colts are focusing their attention on another Super Bowl assistant coach. Frank Reich, the Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator, is the front-runner to be their next head coach.
If Reich does become the Colts head coach, the Eagles would lose two assistant coaches since their Super Bowl LII win over the Patriots. John DeFilippo, who was the Eagles quarterbacks coach, was hired as the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator.
Reich would replace Chuck Pagano if he is named the team’s head coach. Pagano was let go at the end of the season.
This is the first head coaching experience for the 56-year-old. He spent the past two seasons as the Eagles offensive coordinator.
Prior to his appointment with the Eagles, he served two seasons as the San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator in 2014 and 2015. He also spent one season as the Chargers quarterbacks coach in 2013.
He spent the 2012 season as the Arizona Cardinals wide receivers coach. He also worked the 2011 season as the Colts wide receivers coach.
He was the Colts quarterbacks coach in 2009 and 2010. He began his coaching career in the NFL as an offensive coaching staff assistant in 2008.
The New York native played in the NFL for four teams. He began his career with the Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, and the Detroit Lions.
