Colts hired Eagles OC Frank Reich as head coach.
It's a five-year contract. Eagles coach Doug Pederson has now lost both his coordinator and quarterbacks coach after upsetting the Patriots in the Super Bowl. The Chargers' offensive coordinator from 2014-15 before heading to Philadelphia, Reich is a solid hire. He was a big part of the Eagles' offensive success in 2017. The Colts have hired a talented coaching staff so far and will look to add an offensive coordinator in the ensuing weeks. Andrew Luck's health remains the Colts' biggest question mark heading into 2018. Feb 11 - 3:20 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Eagles OC Frank Reich "has emerged as the favorite" for the Colts' head coaching vacancy.

Understandably following the Josh McDaniels fiasco, no one is going to report Reich has been hired until the ink is dry, but Mortensen's wording makes it sound like the two sides are just working out contract details. Especially considering the circumstances, Reich is a quality hire who has done good work both with the Chargers and Eagles. This would be his first head coaching job.
Feb 11 - 12:49 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Colts are expected to put in an interview request for Eagles OC Frank Reich regarding their head-coaching vacancy.

When all is said and done, the Colts could actually benefit from Josh McDaniels backing out on them. McDaniels has proven to be a total failure outside of New England in stops with the Broncos and Rams, and it's anybody's guess if he's actually any good. Reich, 56, got his coaching start in Indy in 2008, spending four years there with Peyton Manning. He's never been a head coach, but is a rising star in the coaching ranks after his work in Philly the past two seasons.
Feb 7 - 10:36 AM

A league source told Titan Insider that Eagles OC Frank Reich is a candidate for Tennessee's head-coaching vacancy.

A longtime NFL backup quarterback, Reich's coaching specialty has been wideouts and signal callers. He earned a promotion to offensive coordinator for the Chargers in 2014-2015, and then served as the Eagles' offensive coordinator the past two years in a secondary role under Doug Pederson, who calls Philly's plays.

The Buffalo News reports the Bills are expected to interview Eagles OC Frank Reich for their head-coaching vacancy.

Reich had a nondescript year overseeing the Eagles' offense, but previously had success with the Chargers. He still seems like an extremely unlikely candidate to get a head-coaching job.

Eagles hired ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich as offensive coordinator.

The job had been his to lose from the start. Reich, 54, was fired earlier this month and made the scapegoat for the Chargers' offensive woes in 2015 when they finished 30th in rushing. Reality was San Diego's offensive line was ripped to shreds by injuries, and Melvin Gordon was a rookie. Reich isn't going to call plays for the Eagles, as new coach Doug Pederson will do that, but he'll be heavily involved in game-planning with Pederson.

Ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich is traveling to Philadelphia Tuesday night to meet with Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.

Reich is interviewing for the team's offensive coordinator position. It appears the job is his to lose. Reich had mixed results in his two years as San Diego's OC but injuries were his undoing in 2015. The Eagles are open to keeping Pat Shurmur on the staff, but not as the offensive coordinator. Pederson has already said he'll call his own plays in Philadelphia.

Ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich is expected to join Doug Pederson's staff in Philadelphia.

Recently fired by the Bolts, Reich will likely be Doug Pederson's offensive coordinator. We'd expect Pederson to call his own plays, but it's not for certain.
Mon, Jan 18, 2016 01:29:00 PM

The Philadelphia Daily News reports new Eagles coach Doug Pederson "would like" ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich as his offensive coordinator.

Reich was the Chargers' scapegoat after the season, getting fired, while coach Mike McCoy and DC John Pagano kept their jobs. Reich was dealt a garbage hand in 2015, as his entire offensive line crumbled with injuries, the receiving corps couldn't stay healthy, and rookie Melvin Gordon legitimately looked bad. Reich and Pederson played together in Carolina. Pederson would likely call his own plays.
Sun, Jan 17, 2016 01:32:00 PM

Chargers fired OC Frank Reich.

We would've guessed DC John Pagano as the first to go. Instead, it's Reich, who coordinated the NFL's No. 9 offense in total yards but No. 26 offense in points scored. Reich, of course, deserves another chance because his offensive talent was decimated by injury, and still looked like one of the league's most-prolific units in the first half of the season. Coach Mike McCoy may take back a prominent offensive role with his revised staff.

The Jets will interview Chargers OC Frank Reich and Cardinals DC Todd Bowles for their head coaching vacancy this week.

Reich, who will interview on Wednesday, has already met with the Bills -- where he mostly backed up Jim Kelly in his playing days. Bowles is just starting interviews this week and is expected to draw heavy interest after his Cardinals were eliminated from the playoffs Saturday. The Jets have already interviewed Doug Marrone (the "perceived" front-runner per the Daily News), Dan Quinn, Tom Cable and Anthony Lynn. They want to talk to Ravens OC Gary Kubiak once Baltimore's playoff run is over. It's an underwhelming cast of characters.

The Bills have requested to interview Chargers OC Frank Reich for their head-coaching vacancy.

Reich, 53, is from New York and spent the first 10 seasons of his playing career as a member of the Bills. He wasn't a star, producing a 40:36 career TD:INT ratio, but was the backup to Hall of Famer Jim Kelly. Reich has been coaching since 2008, but has no previous head-coaching experience at the NCAA or NFL levels. He just wrapped up his first season as the Bolts' offensive coordinator.

The Jets will interview Chargers OC Frank Reich for their head-coaching vacancy.

Reich is also viewed as a "top candidate" for the Bills' HC vacancy. Per the NY Daily News' Manish Mehta, Reich's Jets interview will take place "at some point next week." 53 years old, Reich has mostly been a receivers and quarterbacks coach since his retirement. He spent 2014 as an offensive coordinator.
Thu, Jan 1, 2015 01:39:00 PM

The Bills are expected to have "strong interest" in Chargers OC Frank Reich as Doug Marrone's head-coaching replacement.

It sounds like Marrone is going to the Jets, who already fulfilled the Rooney Rule by interviewing RBs coach Anthony Lynn for their vacancy. They can hire Marrone as soon as they please. Reich replaced Ken Whisenhunt as the Chargers' offensive coordinator in 2014. He is a former quarterback for the Bills.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 08:23:00 PM

Chargers promoted QBs coach Frank Reich to offensive coordinator.

The Bolts stayed in house to replace Ken Whisenhunt. A backup quarterback from 1985-1998, Reich has just six years of NFL-coaching experience, but helped revive Philip Rivers' career this season. Reich served as Peyton Manning's quarterbacks coach in Indianapolis from 2009-10. It's unknown if Reich or head coach Mike McCoy will call plays in 2014. Reich has zero play-calling experience.
