"Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills, and a commanding presence", team owner Jim Irsay said. The thing is that most people don't know about Frank Reich because Doug Pederson is the one calling the plays... There will definitely be some learning curves heading into next season as new assistants will need to be brought in, but the overall offense will not chance much despite losing a key member of its implementation.
Ultimately, Indianapolis made a decision to go with Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich as their head coach instead, who had coached with the Colts before between 2008 and 2011, but this hasn't stopped some players from having ill feelings towards New England's offensive coordinator.
"Thirdly, we're going to be the most prepared team. It's easy for young players to play because it's simple and it allows them to play fast and physical, and that's what we want to be".
IndyStar's Stephen Holder discusses the signing coach of Frank Reich as Indianapolis Colts coach.
Reich spent some time away from football after his playing career, becoming an ordained minister.
"I'm going dark", Reich said. Luck still hasnt thrown a football since October and his rehab from a partially torn labrum will enter its 13th month next week, which was supposed to be the biggest uncertainty about Indys job.
In essence, the Colts wound up hiring the winning offensive coordinator in the Super Bowl (Reich) over the one whose team lost (McDaniels). But if he was the right guy, why didn't they get him the first time around? "He told his attorney and his agent he didn't really want any interviews because it would interrupt his preparation for the playoffs and hopefully, the Super Bowl". Reich later mentored Philip Rivers in San Diego. "It's about this city. what we know is this: When you have a championship culture, it's going to result in many victories". But instead, he took a backup quarterback and turned him into a Super Bowl MVP. "I look forward to working with Frank to deliver a championship-caliber team to the city of Indianapolis". Manning missed all of that season due to injury but Pro Bowler Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon both caught more than 70 passes apiece from three different backup quarterbacks.
WISH- The Indianapolis Colts have a new man to lead the team.
