Colts Coach Frank Reich Fired After Disappointing Start

Heads are starting to roll in the NFL for underperforming teams.

This year, there were high expectations for the Colts after bringing in Matt Ryan to lead the team.

The team was already struggling, but with Ryan now out with an injury, the Colts only managed to put up three points on Sunday.

So, management decided a change was needed, and Frank Reich was fired as the Head Coach for the Indianapolis Colts.

Early Move

As slow of a start as this team has had, they are far from out of the mix.

With most teams in the conference floating around .500, the season can still be saved.

This was a clear message to the team to get rolling or get ready to find a new home next season.

In a move that surprised everyone, Jeff Saturday, a former offensive lineman for the team from 1999 to 2011, was named the interim head coach.

Saturday was doing TV and has no coaching experience, so this was a shock, to say the least.

This was also a surprise because owner Jim Irsay has never made a mid-season move since taking over the team.

Most assumed with Ryan going down, Irsay would give Reich some leeway, but he clearly wanted to send a message.

Reich was first hired in 2018, having a reputation as a QB whisperer of sorts after helping the Eagles win their first Super Bowl title with backup Nick Foles at the helm.

Reich leaves Indy with a very respectable 40-33-1 regular season record.

I doubt he will get another crack as a head coach anytime soon, but I fully expect someone to snatch him up as an offensive coordinator next season.
