Colts Fans Stunned By Interim Coach Decision

Colts fans

The Indianapolis Colts sent shockwaves around the NFL this morning after making the decision to fire head coach Frank Reich. 

Indianapolis, not wasting any time, has reportedly already found an interim coach. 

To the surprise of many fans, the Colts named former center and ESPN analyst Jeff Saturday to their interim coach role Monday morning. 

"Breaking: The Colts have named Jeff Saturday as their interim head coach, per @AdamSchefter," ESPN tweeted Monday morning. 

News of Saturday being named interim coach has sent social media ablaze. 

As ESPN's Field Yates tweeted just after the announcement was made, Saturday made history by becoming one of the least-experienced NFL coaches on record.

"As best as I can tell, Jeff Saturday becomes the first person in NFL history to be named a head coach without any coaching experience at either the NFL or college level. He now takes over in Indy," Yates said Monday.

NFL fans were quick to note this lack of experience, too.

"jeff saturday sent in his resume and this all it said," Steph tweeted Monday. 

The Colts, now 3-5-1, hope Saturday can turn around their disappointing 2022 season Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.
