Frank Reich top candidate for Colts head coaching job, report says

Whether Reich is ready to be a head coach might be debatable. Reich brings the offensive mind that Josh McDaniels had, but unlike McDaniels, has integrity and maturity.

That foiled the Colts' coaching plans, but do seem to have landed possibly a better head coaching candidate in the former of Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich.

Staley, 42, interviewed for the Eagles head-coaching vacancy after Chip Kelly was sacked.

The Super Bowl champion Eagles have now lost two of their most important assistant coaches in Reich and John DeFilippo, who left his job as the Eagles' quarterbacks coach to become the Vikings' offensive coordinator. But when McDaniels backed out of the deal eight hours later, the Colts had to start over. They and coach have reportedly agreed on a five-year deal that is in the process of being finalized. Reich emerged as the leader for the Colts job after McDaniels turned it down after last minute on Tuesday. The former backup quarterback for the Bills was hired as a coaching intern in Indianapolis in 2006 and wound staying with the organization until 2012.

Reich has been the Eagles offensive coordinator the past two seasons, and spent two years in the same capacity with the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Eagles offense cruised through the playoffs despite having to turn to quarterback Nick Foles after Carson Wentz was injured.

Although Reich did not call plays for the Eagles, he had a big role in the offense.

Reich, who has more than a quarter-century of National Football League experience as a player and coach, was hired by Eagles coach Doug Pederson in 2016 to run his offense.

Meanwhile, Colts officials will be in Atlanta on Monday to pay their respects to Edwin Jackson, the 26-year-old linebacker who was killed in a drunken driving crash on February 4.
