The anticipation continues to grow as to who will be the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. As conference championship weekend arrives, it’s still unknown how many coaches will make it to the second round of interviews for the top job at West 56th Street.
Brian Callahan, Eric Bieniemy, DeMeco Ryans, Wink Martindale, Jeff Saturday, the list goes on and on for who could be the next leader in Indianapolis.
-Jeff Saturday: +150
-Eric Bieniemy: +375
-DeMeco Ryans: +650
-Dan Quinn: +750
A bit surprising to me.

On top of this “option overload” the Colts also are competing with other teams in need of a head coach. That includes a division foe in the Houston Texans who have their eyes set on similar names.
#49ers DC DeMeco Ryans has emerged as a top candidate for the #Texans, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. He’s expected to meet with Houston at some point next week after the game. There is mutual interest and if all goes well, he could be their next head coach. pic.twitter.com/Wj2htQYEd1

We know that this is still a quarterback driven league but, if the Colts fail to get the coaching hire right, it could set the franchise back years.
