Eagles Offensive Coordinator Frank Reich Is Favorite for Colts Head Coach Opening

Until he's on the job, dealing with all that goes into it, it's impossible to say with certainty.

Reich returns to the franchise where he started his coaching career in 2008.

Muted enthusiasm is the way to go with the Colts this time around. It might end up a great deal in the end.

The Colts had agreed to a deal with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels before he backed out of his deal last minute and returned to New England. Updates with Colts making official announcement. Reich is expected to be introduced at a news conference Tuesday. Reich has done an excellent job with the Eagles and the appeal of hiring the Super Bowl-winning coordinator would be an easy sell for the Colts.

Head coach Doug Pederson was the offensive play caller in Philadelphia, but Reich played an integral role in developing game plans and working with the quarterbacks. 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. How's that for strong ties to the glory years? They've reportedly landed on another Super Bowl OC. He ascended to quarterbacks and wide receivers coach before leaving Indianapolis in 2012.

Buffalo Bills Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazier was recently interviewed as a candidate for the position.

The Colts can not repeat the embarrassment of unpredictability they experienced with their pursuit of McDaniels. Reich, as Pederson's latest right-hand man, is the right man for the task. Multiple assistant coaches signed contracts thinking they would work under McDaniels.

As a player, Reich appeared in 118 games, 20 as a starter. Reich helped rally the Bills back from a 35-3 third-quarter deficit. He played quarterback in the National Football League from 1985 to 1998.

Reich wasn't the Colts' first choice.
