Indianapolis Colts Are Considering 3rd Round of Head Coach Interviews

The Indianapolis Colts marathon head coaching search doesn't appear likely to come to an end any time soon. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo, the team is considering conducting a third round of interviews among a select group of finalists. The Colts conducted second interviews with eight head coaching candidates, including Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, and Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen. Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday is also considered a favorite for the job.

Whoever the Colts end up with is likely looking at a serious rebuild. The Colts bottomed out this season, finishing 4-12-1 and 30th in scoring. It wasn't just that they swung and missed in free agency by acquiring Matt Ryan via trade with the Atlanta Falcons, either: Ryan drastically outplayed his backups, averaging 5.55 net yards per attempt compared to 4.23 and 3.52 marks for Sam Ehlinger and Nick Foles. Getting the Colts offense on track won't be a matter of simply finding the right quarterback.
