Frank Reich reportedly has five-year deal to become Colts coach

The Colts reportedly also interviewed New Orleans Saints assistant head coach/tight ends Dan Campbell and Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. Reich began his coaching career in Indianapolis, where he served as a coaching intern from 2006-08.

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich has agreed to a five-year contract to become the Colts head man on the sidelines, a source told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Luck may still be on the mend from his shoulder injury, but landing Reich would be an outstanding hire for the Colts to make.

If Reich does get the job, however, the pressure will certainly be on the Eagles - and Pederson - to make sure the offense doesn't take a step back next season with two of their key offensive coaches potentially gone.

This comes after Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the Colts brought Reich in for an interview after McDaniels elected to stay with the Patriots instead of taking the Indianapolis position. Pairing Reich with Andrew Luck could make for a unsafe combination, leading the offense to return to its previous level of success.

After winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history, the Eagles are watching their championship coaching staff dismantled. Head coach Doug Pederson calls the offensive plays in Philadelphia. After that, he went to the Cardinals as their wide receivers coach, and then to the Chargers as the quarterbacks coach.

The move seems like a smart one for the Colts as they will still get the Super Bowl caliber OC they seemed to be seeking.

"As the role of offensive coordinator, that's what you do: you coordinate", Reich said. Implementing Reich's offensive system would likely eliminate many of these unnecessary hits and help to keep the Colts' best player on the field.
