Nick Sirianni: Frank Reich should be Colts head coach still


After an emotional one-point win over his former team in Indianapolis on Sunday, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni told reporters they don't want to know what he thinks about the Colts decision to fire Frank Reich a couple of weeks ago.

Angelo Cataldi made it clear on Monday that he definitely does want to know what Sirianni thinks.

"You know what I think," Sirianni told Cataldi on Monday's 94WIP Morning Show when asked about Reich, his former mentor. "He should be the head coach there still. You know what I think. That was a subtle, 'You don't know what I want to say, but here's what I'm saying' and you guys can read between the lines on that. I don't want to get too much into that Angelo, but I love Frank and I know this city has a fond appreciation of Frank as well."

Two weeks ago the Colts fired Reich after a 3-5-1 start and surprisingly named former center and ESPN analyst at the time, Jeff Saturday, the new head coach.

Sirianni, 41, was the offensive coordinator with the Colts from 2018-2020, under Reich. Reich, 60, spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons as the Eagles' offensive coordinator, helping the team win a Super Bowl.

Sirianni was extra emotional following Sunday's 17-16 Eagles win against his former team.

"This is an emotional game," Sirianni said. "Me getting an emotional, this isn't the first time I've gotten emotional after a tight win like that. It's an emotional game and that's OK. I think Italians are emotional as well, we show our emotions sometimes. It was a great team win. Obviously, going back to Indy and not seeing Frank on that other sideline made it a little bit more emotional for me because I really wanted to get that done for him and then seeing the players that I used to coach and some of the things they said to me after the game. That's one of the reasons you get into coaching, the relationships you have with people. As much as I like my best friends and as much as I like the guys I coach, I like beating them even better."
