Colts fire Reich and choose Saturday as interim coach

- Staff and wire reports

The Indianapol­is Colts fired coach Frank Reich after another lackluster offensive performanc­e in the team’s third straight loss.

The Colts announced the move Monday, one day after they went 0 for 14 on third down and totaled just 121 yards of offense in an ugly 26-3 loss at New England.

Indianapol­is hired former All-Pro center Jeff Saturday as interim coach.

Reich led the Colts to the playoffs in two of his first four seasons. Saturday’s only coaching experience came at a Georgia high school.
