Sirianni reportedly “received a strong recommendation” from Indianapolis head coach Frank Reich, who was previously on the Eagles’ Super Bowl LII-winning staff under Sirianni’s predecessor, Doug Pederson.
The Eagles have stolen Nick Sirianni from the Indianapolis Colts. We bet Nick Sirianni thought there was at least an outside chance he’d be working with Carson Wentz in 2021, but until recent weeks, we doubt he envisioned it in this capacity.
The Eagles have found their man. According to multiple reports, Philadelphia will hire Indianapolis offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as head coach. Sirianni has spent the last three seasons as the Colts’ offensive coordinator under head coach Frank Reich.
The early stages of the offseason have been cruel to Indianapolis Colts fans, who probably want nothing more than to fast forward to the start of the new league year when the front office can begin re-signing players and making further additions to the roster.
Reich worked as Philadelphia's offensive coordinator in 2016 and 2017 before becoming head coach of the Colts in 2018. Reich helped Wentz lead the Eagles to an 18-11 record and a Super Bowl title in those two seasons.
Sirianni spent five years with the Chargers before joining Frank Reich‘s Colts staff. The OC guided the Colts through their transition after Andrew Luck‘s retirement and kept things afloat with Philip Rivers under center.
