Frank Reich to be new Indianapolis Colts head coach

A person with direct knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich has agreed to become the Indianapolis Colts' new head coach.

The Colts were reportedly interested in Seahawks' OC Darrell Bevell and Raiders' QB coach Jake Peetz as their offensive coordinators. His first coaching job was with the Colts in 2006. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Reich is the favorite to take over in Indianapolis. Former Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus, who will be the defensive coordinator, is among those under contract. Eberflus was with the Dallas Cowboys for the last several years as linebackers coach and a passing game coordinator.

Nonetheless, the Colts are acting quickly to attempt their comeback after McDaniels left them high and dry, and in Reich, they found not only the guy who beat him in the Super Bowl, but the former Bills backup quarterback who authored the greatest comeback ever. In the final game of the 1992 regular season, with Reich serving as the backup for Jim Kelly at the time, Reich was required to finish a game against the Houston Oilers when Kelly endured strained ligaments in his knee; during a rematch game, Reich led the Bills to the largest comeback in National Football League history.

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 quarterbacks coach in 2009.

An official announcement on Reich's hiring should come soon.
