The Colts have their new head coach.

The Colts have a new head coach. Again.

After Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels backed out of the job, Indianapolis' front office went back to their search. They've reportedly landed on another Super Bowl OC.

According to multiple reports, the Colts are hiring Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich. The 56-year-old assistant had been with Philly since 2016.

NFL Network insider Mike Garafalo first reported that the hire was official. It's reportedly a five-year deal.

"Frank Reich will be the Colts’ new coach. Five-year deal with the team has been agreed to and about to be finalized, source says. ESPN reported earlier he was the fave," he reported.

This is a coming home of sorts. Reich began his coaching career in Indianapolis.

The offensive guru was an assistant in Indianapolis from 2008-11. He played collegiately at Maryland and then played in the NFL for more than a decade.

An official announcement on Reich's hiring should come soon.
