Reports earlier on Sunday noted that Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich was the favorite to land the Indianapolis Colts' head coaching job.

Reich got his start in coaching with the Colts, serving as an offensive assistant in 2008. The team announced it was "surprised and disappointed" when McDaniels told the Colts he was staying with the Patriots "after agreeing to contract terms" with Indianapolis. McDaniels' change of heart opened up one National Football League head-coaching job.

It seems the Indianapolis Colts have zeroed in on their next head coach and this time they're being thorough. Highly respected quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo left the Eagles to become the Minnesota Vikings' next offensive coordinator. He played quarterback in the National Football League from 1985-98. He was the Chargers' offensive coordinator for two seasons, and then he spent the next two years as Philadelphia's offensive coordinator. He's best known for leading Buffalo back from a 35-3 deficit against the Houston Oilers in the 1992 AFC Wildcard Playoffs after taking over for an injured Jim Kelly late that regular season. Reich, as offensive coordinator, helped devise a game plan that put up 41 points on the Patriots in the win. This will be the first former quarterback that will be Andrew Luck's head coach in Indianapolis.
