“I’m emotional because I love Frank Reich,” Sirianni told reporters after the 17-16 victory. “He’s one of the best damn football coaches I’ve ever been around. I was hoping he and I would be able to coach against each other in this game.”
Reich was fired by the Colts earlier this month when the Colts were 3-5-1 start to what was his fifth season in Indianapolis. Sirianni served as the Colts’ offensive coordinator for the first three seasons of Reich’s tenure in Indy.
“You don’t want to know what I think about whether he should be here or not, because you guys can probably imagine what I really think,” Sirianni said of Reich. “I love him. So I got a little emotional about that.”
