The Indianapolis Colts made the decision to remove Frank Reich as Head Coach and then throw a “Hail Mary” in naming franchise legend Jeff Saturday as his replacement.
Jeff Saturday was a excellent football player, but he is very inexperienced in the field of coaching. Is he really the right man to rescue the Colts from the mediocrity?
Saturday seems unfazed by all the outside talk. He is ready to bring the toughness he displayed as a player. “I’m completely comfortable in who I am as a man, bro. I know I can lead men. I know I know the game of football, and I’m passionate about it. I have no fear about, ‘are you as qualified as somebody else?’” Saturday told reporters, as per Adam Schefter.
Jeff Saturday listed his credentials as a player, saying that he is no stranger to adversity and that he has always risen to the whatever daunting challenge is ahead of him. He also recognizes the possibility that he could fail at his first major coaching gig, but he remains steadfast that he can handle the monumental task ahead of him.
