The Indianapolis Colts signed both general manager Chris Ballard and head coach Frank Reich to contract extensions that tie them to the team through the 2026 season.
Reich gave a statement following Wednesday’s light practice, giving thanks to owner Jim Irsay.
“On a personal note, just extremely thankful and grateful to Mr. (Jim) Irsay and the Colts organization for the confidence and support with the extension,” Reich told the media Wednesday. “Obviously, incredibly excited to work with this team, the players on this team, the leadership on this team.”
Reich has proven to be an above-average head coach and one that connects with his players in a very high regard. He’s a skilled offensive play-designer and seemingly gets the most out of the quarterback position regardless of who is under center.
Doing so with a roster that has been constructed by Ballard, the tandem will continue working to better the roster every season.
Then for me as the head coach, maybe the most exciting thing is the relationship with Chris Ballard, he and I working together along with Mr. (Jim) Irsay really to try and continue to take this team down the road that we want to go. Bright things are ahead,” Reich said. “I could not be more excited with the roster that has been built with the way we’re doing things and the direction that we’re headed.”
