One name to watch for Colts head coaching job: Eagles OC Frank Reich. He’s one of the candidates on a short list and they’re expected to put in an interview request, sources tell @MikeGarafolo and me. Was an assistant in Indy from 2008-11.
I think they will be better off  
Dave on the UWS : 2/7/2018 10:35 am : link
Reich was going to get a HC job sooner or later. JM has proven himself to be a dick. I think they will be thankful when all is said and done
Which would mean  
ryanmkeane : 2/7/2018 10:36 am : link
DeFilippo would most likely get the promotion to OC
It's strange how  
Pete in MD : 2/7/2018 10:36 am : link
he has been sort of overlooked in this whole process. He seems to check a lot of the boxes (former player, multiple year coordinator, recent success, etc. ) Reich as HC and DeFilipo as OC isn't a bad place to start building a staff IMO.

Reich has absolutely emerged as a strong candidate in Indy. On a very short list.

If Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich were to get Colts job, then perhaps Eagles promote QB coach John DeFilippo to offensive coordinator and he's out as Vikings possibility.
Sweet!

This is how McDaniels’ bolting Colts could affect Giants OC decision. If Reich leaves Philly, Flip could bump up instead of going to Vikings. That would affect Stefanski, which affects Giants.
that would leave the Giants still looking for an OC

And I used to hear biggie shout “frank white” on a track, I thought he was saying frank Reich. I found it odd that he’d constantly be referencing the bills backup qb but figured he must have really been impressed by that comeback against the oilers
Same agent as GM Ballard but so did McDaniels

An obvious candidate for the Colts now is Eagles OC Frank Reich. Coached with Colts from 2008-11. Has same agent as GM Chris Ballard. And did a heck of a job with Wentz, Foles and the Eagles offense this year

I feel terrible for Chris Ballard who shares an agent with Josh McDaniels

Bob Lamonte represents Chris Ballard and Josh McDaniels
Frank Reich will probably make a better head coach than

Josh McDaniels anyway.

Al Golden, last year's TEs coach, is moving to LBs coach. And David Corrao is joining the team as Ernie Adams, I mean, director of football research

Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers)
2/7/18, 11:03 AM
Lions announce Paul Pasqualoni as defensive coordinator, Jeff Davidson to coach offensive line, Al Golden moving to linebackers, George Godsey moving to quarterbacks and Brian Stewart and Chris White coming aboard to coach defensive backs and tight ends, respectively.
He's a good fail safe

Ballard said "had an agreement in place" with McDaniels. Had agreed to terms. Then got call Tues night he was going in different direction

Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora)
2/7/18, 11:11 AM
Ballard has not taken questions yet, but there was no fully signed contract I'm told. They did have a term sheet agreed to

Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo)
2/7/18, 11:18 AM
Ballard on whether he pressed McDaniels for reasons: "Either you're in or you're out. I didn't want the explanation."

“Just know this, just know this. Obstacles happen. That’s what makes this league great. That’s what makes football great.” - Chris Ballard trying to channel his inner Nick Foles

Ballard says because of the playoffs they couldn't talk to certain coaches yet. Will start that process now

This is the most pissed-off I've seen Chris Ballard. I mean, he's being totally professional, but you can tell he's freaking fuming.

As we’ve said this morning, Ballard says none of the initial interviews are still in the mix. So Kris Richard and Matt Rhule are out.

"The rivalry is back on."
Ballard finished the press conference  
jvm52106 : 2/7/2018 11:30 am : link
by answering a question about whether this was Josh or Bob Kraft and Belichek (he said I don't deal with New England don't deal with that stuff).. As the PC closed he leaned in to the mic and said the Rivalry is back on..

+1.
Reich: backup to Kelly..groomed under Levy...made a QB out of Flacco..made a QB out of Cole's. I think his drawback is hes a little bit of a Dick on personal relationships but smart.
If he gets the job you Terps fans should be happy.

I thought it was strange that DiFelippo and Staley had been mentioned so often but there was barely a peep about Reich.

Reich is still under contract so he is not leaving Philly for a lateral position or a demotion. His name was talked about for head coaching vacancies, but was always in the next tier with guys like Steve Wilks behind Shurmur and the New England coordinators

Totally agree........now all of a sudden he maybe gets his break.

Probably better with him, than McDaniel as many have already said.

Yes this could really hurt the Giants. As they might miss out on their top two choices now DeFilippo and Stefanski.

This might actually work out for the Colts. I was never a fan of McDaniels but Reich is very intriguing.

A nice ploy to get juice back into a seemingly deflated fan base.
Fantastic. Let's start tearing that staff apart.

I dont think its permission as much as its league rules require notification/courtesy documentation sent to the impacted team of any coach currently under contract. The Eagles can't block it since it would be a promotion.
There is zero chance

I had mentioned Dan Campbell last night as someone who could be on the Colts radar because DeGuglielmo and the DC they hired both have ties to organizations that Campbell played or coached for so he might be willing to accept the head coaching position knowing that they are already in place
McDaniels may not have hurt himself if all works out as he hopes in  
wgenesis123 : 2/7/2018 1:44 pm : link
New England but he hurt other OC's and DC's down the road on playoff teams. Teams will be less inclined to wait as the Giants did for Shurmur, the Lions did for Patricia, and the Colts did for McDaniels. No one wants to be searching for a HC in February!

So Colts’ HC interview schedule for now:

Saints’ asst HC Dan Campbell interviews for job Thursday.

Eagles’ OC Frank Reich interviews for job Friday.

Nah, its not a trend. Teams have been 'waiting' for OCs and DCs for years.. this was the first time its happened.
If the Pats keep winning someone will offer him a HC job in

a few years. Short memories and people desperate to win and always thinking their situation is different.
