Eagles OC Reich agrees to become next Colts head coach

Multiple reports have come out saying that the Reich has agreed to a five year deal to become the new coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

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. He ascended to quarterbacks and wide receivers coach before leaving Indianapolis in 2012.

Reich, 56, has been with the Eagles during the past two seasons as Doug Pederson's top assistant on offense.

The Colts wasted no time making Frank Reich's move official.

The purge of the Eagles' Super Bowl winning coaching staff started with QB coach John DeFilippo leaving Philadelphia to become the Vikings' offensive coordinator.

But he was not the play caller in Philadelphia during their Super Bowl run.

Getting an offensive mind as strong as Reich should be huge for the Colts.

But the Colts could still have work to do in selling Reich to their fan base.

"Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills, and a commanding presence", Colts owner Jim Irsay said in a statement.

There's no question Reich has helped develop quarterbacks on a variety of levels with the Chargers and Eagles. Implementing Reich's offensive system would likely eliminate many of these unnecessary hits and help to keep the Colts' best player on the field. 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 took someone in Foles who had 10 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions in 2015 and 2016 for the St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs and turned him into a Super Bowl MVP after what appeared to be a devastating injury blow to the MVP-candidate starter. It remains the largest comeback in National Football League history.
