Tuesday afternoon on social media, the Indianapolis Colts announced New England Patriots’ offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, as their next head coach. By Tuesday evening, it was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that McDaniels would not be taking the Colts’ job and staying in New England as the offensive coordinator.
McDaniels had already started hiring assistants to his staff, including new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. Now the Colts are on the search for their next head coach.
One name that may come up with the #Colts, as they try to return to normalcy: #Bills DC Leslie Frazier. Won a ring with the #Colts, close with Jim Irsay, would restore order... and has experience doing it.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 7, 2018
Frazier has history with Colts’ owner Jim Irsay, where he won a Super Bowl in 2006 as the assistant head coach and defensive backs coach. Frazier also has head coaching experience in Minnesota as he took over after the first 10 games of the year in 2010. Frazier was fired at the end of the 2013 season, with an overall record of 21-32-1 as a head coach.
We discussed Frazier’s head coaching chances in December.
