The Indianapolis Colts have finally decided on their newest head coach.
Yesterday, it was announced that the Colts have hired Shane Steichen to lead their team.
Steichen comes straight from the Super Bowl runner-up Philadelphia Eagles.
During his introductory press conference yesterday, Steichen discussed a few ways that he will impact the Colts organization.
Shane Steichen on what he learned from Nick Sirianni in Philly: “He never let anything slide,” he says of holding top players accountable. He stresses that.

According to Steichen’s initial press conference, it appears that Nick Sirianni taught him a lot about what it means to coach in the NFL.
Accountability is one of the most important intangibles in any field, especially in athletics.
If players can hold themselves and their teammates accountable for their actions, the team is often more cohesive.
They develop a greater understanding of themselves, along with each other.
This was on full display for one member of the Eagles after their loss in the Super Bowl.
In the fourth quarter, JuJu Smith-Schuster was held, leading to a first down for the Kansas City Chiefs, setting up a game-winning field goal.
While many NFL fans were outraged by the call, the Eagles player in question was not.
After the game, James Bradberry was accountable for his actions, citing that the referee made the right call.
If Steichen can have a similar effect on the Colts, the team should be on the right track for the 2023 season.
After their 4-12-1 record in 2022, the Colts will have to make significant organizational changes to have any sort of sustained success.
