Colts' Frank Reich hire a luxury after messy coaching search

Colts' Frank Reich hire a luxury after messy coaching search”

His first coaching job was with the Colts in 2006.

Reich is also a sharp offensive mind who has helped bring out Wentz's and some of Rivers' best work in recent years, an obvious selling point as he prepares to try and rebuild Luck's career.

The team on Sunday announced they have hired the Eagles offensive coordinator as Indianapolis' new head coach.

Reich, then, has familiarity with the Colts organization, which perhaps was considered a positive since McDaniels ultimately never became comfortable enough to make the move. Reich spent the last two seasons as the Eagles offensive coordinator.

Putin, Erdogan discuss military coordination in Syria
The settlement of the Syrian crisis is also expected to be discussed during the Istanbul meeting. Cavusoglu visited Iran's capital Tehran on Wednesday for talks on bilateral and regional issues.

Presumably, Reich shares Pederson's predilection for risk-taking in play calling, which would be a welcome change to the Pagano era in Indianapolis. Nick Foles stepped in and threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the NFC Championship Game win over the Minnesota Vikings and 373 yards and three touchdowns in the Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots.

The Colts initially hired Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, only to have him back out hours later. Head coach Doug Pederson calls the offensive plays in Philadelphia. He worked as Indy's wide receivers coach in 2011 after Manning missed the season because of injury. He was part of the Colts' run to the Super Bowl in 2009, leaving when Caldwell was sacked after the 2011 season.

After McDaniels' reversal, general manager Chris Ballard launched a second search that included interviews with New Orleans' assistant Dan Campbell, Reich and Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. Or, since Polian once called Reich the "greatest backup quarterback in National Football League history", he'll know how to deal with the possibility of no Luck, too.

"As the role of offensive coordinator, that's what you do: you coordinate", Reich said.
