Frank Reich reportedly has five-year deal to become Colts coach
The Indianapolis Colts have reportedly agreed to a deal to make former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich their next head coach.
According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Reich and the Colts have reached an agreement on a five-year deal.
Frank Reich will be the Colts’ new coach. Five-year deal with the team has been agreed to and about to be finalized, source says. @espn reported earlier he was the fave.

Reich was considered the favorite as soon as Josh McDaniels abruptly changed his mind about taking the Indy job. The 56-year-old likely became a more appealing candidate as he helped backup quarterback Nick Foles lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl championship. While Eagles head coach Doug Pederson gets most of the credit for the team’s offensive success, Reich was also instrumental in helping the team remain in contention even after Carson Wentz went down.
Given the way things unfolded with McDaniels, you can bet the Colts will be waiting until the ink dries on Reich’s contract before they make an official announcement.
