Here's what I do know, as Reich becomes the Indianapolis Colts coach: He has the potential to be a good fit.
Reich, then, has familiarity with the Colts organization, which perhaps was considered a positive since McDaniels ultimately never became comfortable enough to make the move. Reich was previously an offensive assistant for the Colts from 2008 through 2011.
Less than a week after their plan to hire New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels fell through, with McDaniels changing his mind shortly after the team's official announcement, the Indianapolis Colts have found their new head coach.
It's likely easy for Colts fans to envision a high-flying offense with Luck at the helm considering what Reich did with Foles on the sport's biggest stage.
The hiring of Reich ends the Colts' drama-filled coaching search after Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels made a decision to pass on the job after he already accepted the it.
After launching his coaching career in Indy, Reich was receivers coach in Arizona ('12), and quarterbacks coach ('13) and offensive coordinator in San Diego ('14-'15) before being named the Eagles" offensive coordinator in "16.
After McDaniels' reversal, general manager Chris Ballard launched a second search that included interviews with New Orleans' assistant Dan Campbell, Reich and Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. He seems like the type of person who would be willing to work with those Colts assistant coaches who were recently hired under the expectations McDaniels would be the coach. Reich led the Bills back from a 35-3 deficit for a 41-38 win.
Reich's path in National Football League coaching has featured a lot of faith and determination, two things the Colts need with Luck. According to the NFL Network, the Colts are hoping Reich can bring out the best in quarterback Andrew Luck.
"As the role of offensive coordinator, that's what you do: you coordinate", Reich said.
