Frank Reich reportedly has five-year deal to become Colts coach

Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich is expected to become the next Indianapolis Colts head coach, according to the NFL Network. 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.

After the Josh McDaniels fiasco, the Colts have locked in their head coach, Eagles' offensive coordinator Frank Reich.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard was left to explain the embarrassing circumstances in which McDaniels reneged on a deal. It's reportedly a five-year deal. "I live in a black and white world. I didn't want the explanation". He was staying with the Patriots. He said that this past week, saying there was no timetable for a new hire. Moreover, Reich - who has limited play-calling experience after being a coordinator under Pederson and Mike McCoy - wasn't a part of Ballard's first round of interviewees.

Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills, and a commanding presence. Reich also has worked for the Colts before, as he was on Tony Dungy and Jim Caldwell's staff from 2008 to 2011. He was the Chargers' offensive coordinator for two seasons, and then he spent the next two years as Philadelphia's offensive coordinator. He joined the Eagles in 2016.

As Bills quarterback on January 3, 1993, he rallied Buffalo from a 35-3 hole to a 41-38 overtime victory against the Houston Oilers in a wild-card round game, the largest comeback in National Football League history.
