Colts reportedly have Frank Reich as their favorite for HC

Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills, and a commanding presence. Reich was with the Colts mostly as an offensive assistant from 2006-11.

Timing is everything, and Reich was the hottest candidate at the moment McDaniels backed out. 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. Staley, a former Eagles running back, has been on the Eagles' coaching staff since 2011, including the past five years as running backs coach.

After launching his coaching career in Indy, Reich was receivers coach in Arizona ('12), and quarterbacks coach ('13) and offensive coordinator in San Diego ('14-'15) before being named the Eagles" offensive coordinator in "16.

After winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history, the Eagles are watching their championship coaching staff dismantled. He helped Nick Foles win the Super Bowl MVP.

In his two seasons as the quarterbacks coach he helped guide Peyton Manning to the playoffs, including their 2009 Super Bowl loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly lost another assistant coach Sunday.

Who should replace Frank Reich as the Eagles' offensive coordinator?

Getting an offensive mind as strong as Reich should be huge for the Colts.

That left the Colts scrambling to find a replacement with the Scouting Combine and free agency on the horizon, but they appear to have landed on their feet by hiring Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Reich.

After being spurned by Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, the Colts have their sights set on Reich to be their next head coach.
