Indianapolis Colts Fire Frank Reich, Hire Jeff Saturday as Interim Head Coach: The Indianapolis Colts’ bizarrely dismal season took an even worse turn on Monday when the team was dismissed.
Former Pro Bowl centre Jeff Saturday was appointed temporary head coach by head coach Frank Reich. On Sunday, the Colts suffered a humiliating loss to the New England Patriots. Of course, their most despised adversary lost 26 to 3 and went on to lose 3, 5, and 1 for the year.
Frank Reich is no longer the head coach, sadly, as it is not an unique incidence. Since 2018, he has amassed a record of 40-33-1, with two playoff outings in which he placed first and second. Reich, of course, received a pretty bad hand and a new quarterback every game.
So the problems are more than just him. His offence frequently showed no signs of life, as they perform poorly in almost every significant metric and are in the bottom half of the league.
The defensive consultant John Fox was a head coach before Gus Bradley, the current defensive coordinator. He has experience as a head coach.
