INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The Colts' new head coach has landed in Indianapolis.

The Colts tweeted a picture around 12:15 p.m. Tuesday showing Frank Reich and his wife getting off the plane. Reich is scheduled to speak at his first press conference as head coach at 3:30 p.m.


Reich was announced as the new coach Sunday. The Colts had a little fun with the announcement tweeting a photo of him actually signing his contract and another picture of him holding that morning's newspaper to prove that it actually happened in light of Josh McDaniels' backing out of his handshake agreement to take the job.

In his press conference about McDaniels backing out, Colts general manager Chris Ballard said that just because someone's the first choice doesn't make them the right choice. In his column Sunday, WTHR.com's Bob Kraviz ran with that, saying Reich may not have been the Colts' first choice but he could very well be the right one.
