    One of the guiding forces behind the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl victory will be the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
    Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich signed a contract Sunday to become the Colts' head coach, the team announced. It's a five-year deal, a source informed of the talks between the sides told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Indy's decision wraps up a whirlwind coaching search for the Colts after New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels withdrew from an announced agreement to become the team's head coach on Tuesday.
    "We are extremely excited to announce Frank Reich as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts," Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay said in a statement. "Frank has all the ingredients of a successful head coach: intelligence, innovation, character, organizational and leadership skills, and a commanding presence. He also has a stellar reputation, and his myriad of life experiences and the people he has worked with make him the perfect fit for us and our fans. I feel extremely fortunate and could not be more excited for Colts Nation and the future of our franchise."
    Reich, 56, emerged as the favorite for the job after meeting with Colts general manager Chris Ballard on Friday. The Colts also interviewed New Orleans Saints assistant head coach/tight ends Dan Campbell and Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.
    The team is expected to introduce Reich at a news conference Tuesday.
    "We are excited to have Frank Reich as our new head coach," Colts general manager Chris Ballard said. "Frank is a leader of men who will demand excellence from our players on and off the field. I look forward to working with Frank to deliver a championship-caliber team to the city of Indianapolis."
    Getting a head coach into the facility as soon as possible was a priority for the Colts even though Ballard stressed on Wednesday the team had no specific timetable. Reich was considered among the possible candidates for a head coaching job this offseason -- a distinction enhanced by quarterback Nick Foles leading the Eagles to victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
    With Reich leaving for Indy, Eagles coach Doug Pederson has two prominent vacancies in his offensive coaching staff. Quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo was hired as the Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator Friday.
    Reich, who has more than a quarter-century of NFL experience as a player and coach, was hired by Pederson in 2016 to run his offense. He helped Carson Wentz establish himself as one of the league's premier rookies last season and helped the quarterback develop into a legitimate MVP candidate before he suffered a torn ACL and LCL in December.
    Before his coaching stint in Philly, Reich served as the San Diego Chargers' offensive coordinator for two seasons after initially being hired as the team's quarterbacks coach in 2013. He worked as the Arizona Cardinals' wide receivers coach in 2012.
    Reich's coaching career actually began with the Colts in 2006 when he was hired as an intern before being promoted to offensive assistant and later quarterbacks coach. Working with Peyton Manning, he helped the soon-to-be Hall of Famer pass for more than 9,200 combined yards over the 2009 and 2010 seasons. He worked as Indy's wide receivers coach in 2011 after Manning missed the season because of injury.
    The Colts are hoping Reich's success with Manning, Rivers, Wentz and Foles will carry over to Andrew Luck, who missed the entire 2017 season due to a nagging shoulder injury -- a development contributing to the team's 4-12 season and coach Chuck Pagano's firing. The Colts' brain trust will be leaning hard on Reich to ensure the former No. 1 overall draft pick will rediscover his form in 2018. Getting the most out of Luck will be critical for a team eager to erase its three-year playoff drought.
    The other challenge for Reich will involve his coaching staff. Multiple assistant coaches signed Colts contracts thinking they'd be working under McDaniels. Former Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus, who will be Indy's defensive coordinator, is among those under contract. Although Ballard expressed confidence Wednesday in these coaches working well with whoever they hired to lead the team, most head coaches typically have the freedom to hire their assistants.
    Still, Reich's hiring will help the Colts move on from what's been a strange and turbulent week for the franchise following McDaniel's flip-flop. Ballard has plenty of areas on his roster that need tinkering, but it appears he's confident Reich can help Indy climb back to the top of the AFC. Having him in the building more than two weeks before the start of the NFL Scouting Combine will help the franchise move closer toward normality.

    He was bound for a head coaching job. Said it before the superbowl he was going to be a head coach before we know it.

    Eagles qb coach is legit too. If he also leaves, eagles could take a bit of a dive. But I don't think he will.

    Patriots coverage in the sporting arena is akin to Trump coverage in the political arena

    Just fucked up

    I'm glad they hired an offensive guy. FINALLY

    Colts have had the qb in place for the last 20 years and then ALWAYS hire a defensive head coach but the defense never approves ( USUALLY GETS WORSE). Andrew Luck will be their best player so hopefully Reich can take him to another level.

    I'll never forget Reichs' comeback when he was on the Bills and substituting for Jim Kelly against Houston. Greatest comeback ever!

    Anther level would be all pro which is what he will be. He is an actual franchise qb. Colts should focus on 2 things....

    1. Protecting luck
    2. Pass rush

    thats it. You have the hardest part completing as far as being good.. the franchise qb is in place.

    Luck alone makes a 3-13 team a 10-6 team
