According to ESPN senior NFL reporter Adam Schefter the Philadelphia Eagles are hiring the Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni to be their new head coach.
Eagles are hiring Colts' OC Nick Sirianni as their head coach, sources tell ESPN. Sirianni spent three seasons as a Chiefs' assistant coach, five seasons with the Chargers, and the past three with the Colts. Now the 39-year-old Sirianni becomes the lead man in Philadelphia.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 21, 2021
Sirianni has been the Colts offensive coordinator since 2018 when he agreed to coach for the Colts under newly appointed Colts head coach Franck Reich. Sirianni has strong ties to Reich having both coached together before in San Diego for the Chargers. Although Sirianni didn’t call plays during the game for the Colts he did have a huge role to play in game plans. Before his time in Indianapolis Sirianni worked for the Chargers from 2013-2017 working his way up from offensive quality control coach to quarterback coach and then to wide receivers coach.
Sirianni started out his NFL coaching career in Kansas City for the Chiefs. He had several roles during his time with the Chiefs between 2009-12 such as offensive quality control, assistant quarterback coach and wide receivers coach.
It will be interesting to see if Sirianni tries to or does take any current Colts coaches with him to Philadephia to be apart of his staff over there.
