The Indianapolis Colts and Jim Irsay experienced a roller-coaster season that finished with a seven-game losing streak. Even though Jeff Saturday, Indianapolis’ temporary head coach, presided over the Colts’ demise, Irsay hasn’t ruled out his return as the team’s permanent head coach for the upcoming campaign.
Frank Reich served as the Colts’ head coach to begin the year. He was, however, removed by Saturday following a 3-5-1 start. Before losing the following seven games, Indianapolis won their first game under Saturday.
But Saturday is still a strong candidate to be the Colts’ next head coach. Jordan Schultz of The Score reports that Irsay, who thinks he has what it takes to be an NFL head coach, is one of his supporters.
Due to Irsay’s faith in Saturday, Schultz stated that the Colts might take their time selecting their next head coach. In addition, Saturday allegedly would choose his own staff if given the permanent job of head coach.
Jeff One of the more bizarre moves in recent NFL history was the hiring on Saturday. Even though he is a member of the Colts’ ring of honor, Saturday has never served as an NFL head coach. His administration began well before ultimately crumbling. Indianapolis fell to the lowly Texans in the waning minutes of the team’s season finale.
Jim Irsy, though, is a fan of Saturday. And Saturday will have a chance to keep his job as long as Irsay is in charge. But significant adjustments would be made. The Colts will need better, actually much better, performance on the field if they are to bring back Saturday.
