The Indianapolis Colts have begun their search for the club’s next Head Coach.
Outspoke Colts Owner, Jim Irsay gave Frank Reich his walking papers following a lackluster start to the club’s 2022-23 campaign. In a move that was dubbed premature media and fans alike, the Colts still find themselves looking for their next coach.

Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Prediction
The pick to become the next Head Coach of the Indianapolis Colts is former Atlanta Falcons Head Coach and current Dallas Cowboys Defensive Coordinator, Dan Quinn.
As previously mentioned, the Colts have made several consecutive offensive-minded head coaching hires. While Dan Quinn’s time as the Atlanta Falcons Head Coach didn’t quite live up to expectations, especially towards the end of his tenure, his now second-time as a Defensive Coordinator in the NFL has exceeded expectations. Prior to Quinn’s arrival in Dallas, the Cowboys struggled mightily on defense, which is now the key part of their success in 2022, thus far.
