Frank Reich, the Indianapolis Colts head coach, was fired by the team management after their loss against the New England Patriots. The Colts are currently last in the NFL when it comes to total points scored yet. They are 27th when it comes to yards gained.

The Colts announced the move on Monday, one day after it went 0 for 14 on third down and totaled just 121 yards of offense in an ugly 26-3 loss at New England.

Indy (3-5-1) has the league’s lowest scoring offense. Team officials are expected to speak about the decision Monday night.

Reich was hired in 2018 after serving as offensive coordinator for the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles. He led the Colts to the playoffs in two of his first four seasons and had them on the cusp of making it last season. But Indy lost its last two games to miss the postseason.

The Colts have also announced that former center Jeff Saturday will be serving as the interim coach. After the decision was made, the Colts released a press statement on their official website with only the message “The Colts on Monday parted ways with head coach Frank Reich”.

Reich is now the second NFL coach to be shown the door in the middle of the season. On October 10, 2022, the Carolina Panthers had fired head coach Matt Rhule.

Colts players like Isaiah Rodgers Sr and Nick Cross have taken to social media to pay tribute to the departing Reich.

Some fans have even taken to social media to say that it was the failure of the team management to have given Colt five different quarterbacks to work with in the five seasons he has been in charge of the team. In 2018, he had 

Andrew Luck in the team, in 2019 Reich had to play Jacoby Brissett and Brian Hoyer, in 2020, he had Philip Rivers at his disposal, who was 39 years old by then.

This was followed by Carson Wentz in 2021 and Matt Ryan and Sam Ehlinger in 2022.
