The Indianapolis Colts have found their next head coach.
They have decided to hire Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen.
After a long and tedious process, the Colts decided to go with the sharp offensive mind.
The hiring of Steichen means that Jeff Saturday will be relieved of his duties as interim head coach.
Hiring Saturday was one of the surprises of this past NFL season.
He did not have any previous coaching experience, and he was not even an assistant on the team.
Yet, Saturday stepped in and did the best the could.
As a player, Saturday was loved in Indianapolis.
He was a great center and a big reason for their success during the Peyton Manning era.
Despite not having much success as the interim head coach, Saturday still sent out a heartfelt message to Colts fans.

Even though he will no longer be coaching the team, Saturday could still provide some assistance if necessary.
With Steichen now at the helm, he will have to make many tough decisions surrounding his team.
The first and most important is what to do at quarterback.
Any good offense in the league has a good quarterback, yet the Colts do not have one on their roster.
It seems likely that they will be looking to use the fourth overall pick on a quarterback.
Steichen needs to have a young player that he can develop.
Just like he did with Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Some of the top options in the draft include Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, and Will Levis.
Any of which would be a good fit for the Colts.
Overall, Steichen seems like a very good hire and someone that can help bring the Colts back to relevancy.NEXT: The Colts Are Following An NFL Head Coaching Trend
