The hire comes days after Josh McDaniels backed out of the position to return to the New England Patriots.
Reich was also the San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator before joining the Eagles in 2016. His first NFL was with the colts, where he started as an offensive assistant in 2008.
He is expected to fly to Indianapolis tonight to sign his contract, something the Colts really hope actually happens this time.
UPDATE, 5:37 p.m.
Reich has signed a five-year contract, making the deal official.
