Former Maryland QB Frank Reich hired as Colts head coach

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.

Maryland football’s Twitter account gave Reich a shout out after the announcement.

Reich was the Eagles offensive coordinator from 2016-17. In fact, he got his start in coaching with the Colts in 2008, where he served in several coaching roles through 2011. He also made stops with the Arizona Cardinals and the San Diego Chargers before landing in Philadelphia.

Reich played for the Terrapins from 1982-84, throwing for 1,704 total yards and 10 touchdowns in 18 games in that span.
