‘It’s about getting it right’: Colts’ coaching search continues

Chris Ballard let the NFL world know what his head coach search would look like. On Jan. 10, during the GM’s end-of-season press conference, a reporter asked him what he had learned going through the process the first time. In 2018, the Colts hired Frank Reich after Josh McDaniels backed out of his handshake agreement to be the team’s head coach.

Ballard’s response? Don’t start with the end in mind. A lot of times, he explained, you have a vision of what you want beforehand, making it easier to ignore someone who is, in his words, “really freaking good.”  

Ballard made it clear that patience and thorough interviews, with all the candidates considered, would be paramount this time around. 

“I don’t care if it takes until mid-February to hire the head coach,” he said. “It’s about getting it right.”

That wasn’t said in jest. 

February just started, and it doesn’t appear that the Colts are particularly close to naming a head coach. According to NFL Network, Indianapolis is considering a “rare” third round of interviews. That’s after a second round that reportedly included eight candidates. Interim coach Jeff Saturday is reportedly still in the mix, and Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan’s name has popped.

The team had initial interviews with 13 coaches, more than any of the other four teams looking for a new leader. And the candidates come from far-ranging backgrounds, with expertise on defense, offense and special teams. 

It’s a diverse group, highlighting one of the most exhaustive head coach searches we’ve seen in recent NFL history. It’s been so thorough that it has come across as comical to some league observers, and frustrating to some Colts fans. Of the five teams that had openings this cycle, the Colts are one of two teams — the Cardinals being the other — that hasn’t made a hire.
