NFL World Reacts To Colts’ Jeff Saturday Announcement – AthlonSports.com

The Indianapolis Colts appear to be in the home stretch of their search for a new head coach, with reports out of Indianapolis indicating that the team has identified a handful of candidates to receive second interviews.

The search could end up right back where it started.

According to Josh Alper of ProFootballTalk, one of the candidates who is receiving a second interview is Jeff Saturday. Saturday, of course, spent the final eight games of the 2022 season serving as the team’s interim head coach following the firing of Frank Reich.

Colts owner Jim Irsay was widely criticized for hiring Saturday in the first place. Saturday, who played center for the Colts for 13 seasons, had never coached at the college or NFL level prior to being tabbed as the team’s interim.

Saturday won his first game with the Colts, but the team lost each of its final seven contests.

Based on the reactions from fans on social media, hiring Saturday full-time might actually be less popular than his hiring as the team’s interim coach.
