One week ago, Frank Reich was celebrating a Super Bowl title with the Philadelphia Eagles after they defeated the New England Patriots, 41-33, in Minneapolis. Today, Reich is looking toward the future, as he has been hired as the new head coach of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.
The team announced Reich as its head coach on Sunday. The former Maryland quarterback is expected to be formally introduced in a press conference on Tuesday. This marks the first time that Reich will be a head coach in his coaching career.
