Colts Fire Head Coach After Poor Start

The Indianapolis Colts were expected to be a genuine contender in the AFC in 2022, with an offence led by veteran Matt Ryan along with Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor, but unfortunately, they've struggled to build any kind of consistency all season long, and after scoring just 3 points in a disappointing 29-3 loss to the Patriots in Week 9, the team have relieved Head Coach Frank Reich of his duties. 

The team have struggled to give him a Quarterback to build around over the past few years, and after Nick Sirriani left for the head coaching job of the Eagles, this offence has just not been able to put anything together. Reich leaves after four and a half years at the helm of the Colts, in which they reached the playoffs just twice, failing to pick up a postseason win on both occasions.

Indianapolis will look to bounce back with young Sam Ehlinger at the helm and potentially make a run at the AFC South, but they'll need to get something going if they are to do that, and looking at all their talented pieces underperform in 2022, it's hard to see that happening. Either way, the Colts have fired their Head Coach after a 3-5-1 start to the year where they've managed the 32nd best offence in the NFL, and we will see where it goes from here.
