Report: Frank Reich emerges as favorite for Colts job
The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly very keen on making Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich their next head coach.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, the Colts want Reich, but this comes with the important caveat that the two sides have to reach agreement on a contract.
Frank Reich has emerged as the favorite to become the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, who are hoping to hire the Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator once they have negotiated a signed, sealed and delivered contract, per @mortreport and me.

The Colts had hinted earlier in the interview process that Reich was of great interest to them, and seeing what he did with backup quarterback Nick Foles in the playoffs likely only served to increase that interest. Given how the Josh McDaniels saga played out, nothing will be done here until a contract is signed and sealed, but it certainly sounds like the odds are heavily in favor of Reich landing the job.
