Reich was interviewed Friday and New Orleans Saints assistant head coach/tight ends coach Dan Campbell had talks with the Colts on Thursday.

The 56-year-old Reich, a former National Football League quarterback, began his coaching career in 2006 as an intern with the Colts and eventually was promoted to coach the quarterbacks and wide receivers until 2012. But when McDaniels backed out of the deal eight hours later, the Colts had to start over.

"As the role of offensive coordinator, that's what you do: you coordinate", Reich said. McDaniels called Colts general manager Chris Ballard later that evening and reneged on the agreement, saying he chose to stay with New England. Garafolo reported the two sides agreed to a five-year deal (though, as we learned this week, nothing is completely official until a contract is signed). Shortly after the Eagles won their first Super Bowl in franchise history, he was eventually hired as the head coach of the team that gave him his first coaching job, the Indianapolis Colts.

Reich is also a sharp offensive mind who has helped bring out Wentz's and some of Rivers' best work in recent years, an obvious selling point as he prepares to try and rebuild Luck's career.

After McDaniels decided not to take the Colts job, Indianapolis' general manager Chris Ballard declared that their rivalry with the Patriots was "back on". "He was a valuable member of our staff, and we have all benefited from working with him over the last two years", Eagles coach Doug Pederson said in a statement. He also served as receivers coach in Arizona and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach with the San Diego Chargers.

Reich, with his experience at the quarterback position, should help realign the Colts and ignite them back into the AFC playoff picture.
