Colts owner says Frank Reich firing wasn’t ‘personal,’ defends decision to hire Jeff Saturday

Nov 25, 2022

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay fired head coach Frank Reich after the Colts fell to 3-5-1 on the season.

Irsay’s next decision, hiring former Colts' player Jeff Saturday as interim head coach, sparked a wide debate as Saturday has no coaching experience beyond the high-school level.

Irsay defended his decision to fire Frank, telling ESPN that the decision was not personal.

"It's not personal. It's the very opposite from being personal," Irsay said.

"Frank is a treasured friend of my family and all my daughters," Irsay said. "We go back a long, long way. I'm very, very close to Frank, and I've known Frank for many decades. He's like family."
