The Indianapolis Colts of the NFL announced Monday the firing of Frank Reich as their head coach after five seasons with the team.
Reich’s dismissal came after Indianapolis suffered a 26-3 loss last Sunday to the New England Patriots in week nine of the 2022 NFL season.
The coach born in Freeport, New York, left the Colts with a mark of three wins, five losses and a tie that places them in second place in the South division of the American Conference in which the Titans are leaders with a record of 5 -3.
Seven QB in 5 seasons
The 60-year-old coach found no stability for his team at quarterback. In five seasons he tested seven quarterbacks.
Andrew Luck played in 16 games, Jacoby Brissett was in 15, Brian Hoyer was in one, Philip Rivers in 16, Carson Wentz was in 17, Matt Ryan in seven and Sam Ehlinger, who ran the team in the loss to the Pats. He started two games.
In his attempt to improve the performance of his attack, Reich last Tuesday fired the team’s offensive coordinator, Marcus Brady, who had held that position since 2021.
The Colts’ offense is through week nine the least productive among the 32 teams in the league, averaging 14.7 points per game. Their defense, ranked 13th, receives an average of 20.3 points per game.
Reich took charge of Indianapolis in 2018, since then he has forged a record of 40 wins, 33 losses and one tie.
In five seasons, he qualified the Colts twice for the playoffs. In 2018 he lost in the division game against the Kansas City Chiefs and in 2020 he fell in the wild card duel against the Buffalo Bills.
Reich became the second coach to be fired in the 2022 season, the first being Matt Rhule, released from the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 10.
