The Indianapolis Colts sacked head coach Frank Reich following a dismal start to the 2022 season. A humiliating loss to the New England Patriots sealed the fate of the head coach.
Despite Reich's earlier accomplishments, owner Jim Irsay thought it was time to move on. Reich talked with Fox59's Mike Chappell about the team's decision and the next steps
after having some time to relax. He expressed his desire to coach again. "I think you keep all your options open," Reich told Chappell. “Obviously my desire is to be a head coach.
There’s disappointment and hurt,’’ Reich said. “It hurts. It hurts to have it happen in the middle of the season, but I understand the business side of things. I have a tremendous
amount of respect for Mr. Irsay and I’ve come to trust his instincts and his knowledge of the game. I just know he’s doing what he thinks is best for the team.
I can live with that. I gave my heart and soul to the job, to the guys, to everything I did there. I didn’t take anything for granted.’’ In his four-plus years as head coach,
Reich led the club to two postseason trips. His failure to identify a dependable quarterback option contributed significantly to the team's recent troubles.
