Colts plan to interview Leslie Frazier for head coaching job

Grant SmithFeb 11, 2018

The rivalry arguably continued into Andrew Luck's tenure with the Colts, as the two met in the playoffs in 2013 and 2014.

On Tuesday morning, the Colts announced that McDaniels accepted the role that became available when the team fired Chuck Pagano after a 4-12 season.

Moreover, Pederson has lauded the impact Reich has had in terms of game-planning and play-calling. The Colts reportedly have several interviews lined up with various assistant coaches from around the league. Since 2012, Toub has had interviews with the Miami Dolphins (2012), Chicago Bears (2013), Los Angeles Chargers (2017), Denver Broncos (2017), and now the Colts.

Instead, Indianapolis GM Chris Ballard used that time to discuss what had transpired, and how the Colts were going to recover. And you can see the impact of when he has been in New England and the success they've had versus when he was not there. According to Ballard, what is most important is finding someone who really wants to be the coach of the Colts. I told him, 'Les, I don't have this job yet; I can't in good faith tell you that.' He said, 'Well, coach, it's been on the radio for an hour.

But, at around 7:40 Tuesday evening, the deal between McDaniels and the Colts fell apart.

After spending the entire postseason being called the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, whispers started to generate during their bye week before Super Bowl LII that McDaniels wouldn't leave.

Although McDaniels never signed his contract with Indianapolis, his stint was even shorter than Belichick's Jets tenure.

As of this time, the defensive coordinator position remains vacant, but it is easy to imagine that McDaniels will have some type of say in the decision on who to go with. One of the last things on his agenda was to meet with owners Robert and Jonathan Kraft and coach Bill Belichick.

McDaniels gave up a chance to coach Luck to remain with Tom Brady, who'll return for his 19th season at 41.

From 2006-08, he served as offensive coordinator, calling plays during New England's flawless regular season in 2007.

While Luck's status remains up in the air, the new head coach in Indy does already have a few assistant coaches in place, whether he likes it or not.

McDaniels, the son of a Hall of Fame high school coach in football rich OH, spent 14 of the past 17 seasons working with Bill Belichick in New England.
