Upon surprising the NFL world and making Jeff Saturday the crew’s interim head coach, a definite vibe emerged from Colts proprietor Jim Irsay that he already had determined, unofficially, to provide the job to Saturday after the season. That didn’t cease a slew of candidates from interviewing for the job.
And so, apparently, Irsay is utilizing the method to legitimize the unofficial resolution to rent Saturday. The longer Saturday stays within the combine, the higher the possibility he will get the job.
That’s the massive takeaway from the information that. He’s in it. And he could very effectively win it.
Some assume that it’ll come right down to Saturday and Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. It’s finally Irsay’s resolution. If he needs to rent somebody that didn’t even get an interview with any of the opposite 4 groups on the lookout for head coaches, that’s his enterprise.
And it finally comes right down to enterprise. Even because the Colts had been falling aside with Saturday working the present, of us crammed up the stadium. Which provides Irsay the flexibility to let Saturday safe on-the-job expertise to make up for the expertise that he essentially lacked — earlier than he acquired eight video games of on-the-job expertise to finish the 2022 season.
