Eagles coach Nick Sirianni’s emotional speach on Frank Reich. 2022

Eagles Coach Nick Sirianni looked excited on the sidelines immediately after his team’s win against the Colts. He forced himself out of his headphones before leaping onto the bench to shout at a group of Philadelphia supporters.

For Sirianni, it was not just winning that improved the Eagles’ record to 9-1 after an unsatisfactory loss in Week 10; however, it was something more profound.

“I’m emotional because I love Frank Reich,” Sirianni told reporters following the 17-16 win. “He’s one of the best damn football coaches I’ve ever been around. In this game, I had hoped that he and I might coach against one another.

Reich was dismissed from the Colts in November. Seven after the team’s 3-5-1 beginning to the fifth time he was in Indianapolis. Sirianni was Colt’s offensive coordinator during the first three seasons that Reich was in Indy and was the catalyst for him to be offered the position of head coach in Philadelphia.

“I spent a lot of time here. Here is where one of my children was born,” Sirianni said. “It was sweet to come here, especially with what happened with this organization the last couple weeks, and get the win. A win! Leave Indianapolis. With. A. Win.”

The Colts appointed Jeff Saturday as the team’s interim head coach after Reich’s demotion. The Colts began their season with a surprise victory in the previous week’s game and held a slender lead against the Eagles until the final eight minutes after Jalen Hurts ran into the end zone to score the winning goal.

“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 think,” Sirianni told Reich. “I love him. So I got a little emotional about that.”

A harrowing win amid a tight, challenging game could do wonders for the top-ranked Eagles in the future. Hurts acknowledged their emotions toward Sirianni after the game and handed him the ball for the game, adding a positive aspect to Philadelphia’s 2022 season.

“I know it’s special for him,” said Hurts. “He was a big fan of spending time with us in Indianapolis. The city has lots of memories here. It was a great return home for him. I’m happy we got the victory for him. As he left the stadium, I could hear he was a bit emotional. It was probably because I did not help him by throwing the ball.

“Coach doesn’t get enough credit for what he does and what he’s been for us. He does a great job. I’m happy he got to get this win.”
