Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said he’s looking forward to working with new head coach Frank Reich, who steps in after serving as offensive coordinator for the Super Bowl winning Philadelphia Eagles.
Reich said during his introductory press conference last week that wants his offense to be a “multiple, attack, up-tempo offense” that is “aggressive.” Luck said he loves the idea of working in a fast-paced offense.
“That sounds great,” Luck told Colts.com. “I know all the best offenses that I’ve been a part of in my career, we’ve not been static and we’ve attacked. And I’m sure he’ll have a great flavor and we’ll involve as many people as we can, and attacking defenses is what it’s all about.”
While Luck did not address his rehab with the team’s official website, he did speak profusely about his new head coach.
Reich spent 13 seasons as an NFL player, most famously as Jim Kelly’s backup in Buffalo for nine seasons, including their run to four Super Bowl appearances. As a coach, Reich has worked with Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz and Nick Foles — and Luck says that intrigues him, as he believes he can learn from Reich’s experience both as a player and coach.
“Going back to [Reich’s] playing days, he’s incredibly successful, and he’s been around some awesome quarterbacks,” Luck said. “And I hope I can learn from him and ask him how Peyton or Carson or Philip did it, and find the best way for me.
“You can learn something from everybody, and certainly our history shapes so much of how we think and [our] thought process, and I’m really excited to hear his thought process and how he did it as a player and how he’s seen other players do it, and how he’s done it as a coach. I think that could have a very positive impact on our team.”
