The Colts are moving on to a second round of interviews for their head coaching job and interim head coach Jeff Saturday reportedly remains in the mix.

Saturday went 1-7 after taking over the team in the wake of Frank Reich’s firing, but neither that record nor his lack of coaching experience appear to be working against him at this point. Rob Maaddi of the Associated Press reports that the Colts plan to interview Saturday again.

Broncos defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero is also set for a second interview and, per the report, seven or eight total candidates are expected back for another meeting.

While the team is moving to second interviews, Maaddi also reports that they’d like to interview 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans for the first time. Ryans will not be able to interview with the team until the 49ers season is over, however, and a win on Sunday would mean that the Colts would have to put the rest of the process on hold until mid-February to make that happen.

  1. Exactly what about Saturday’s interim tenure helped him make it to the second round. Was it his extensive coaching history? Did he promise to drink with Irsay 2 nights a week instead of 1?

    One of the worst interim headcoaches in NFL history and helped eliminate Matt Ryan from ever making the hall of fame by masterminding the worst regular season collapse in NFL history.

    But sure, may the best man get the job. Wow.

  2. He is Irsay boy. If he does not get the head coaching job, he will be slotted into a high office position.

  3. Can you imagine rolling forward with this guy? Hey, I’m sure Irsay knows what he’s doing.

  4. If the Colts hire this guy they deserve all the punishment they will take on the field and off next year. Stupid is as stupid does.

  5. Go ahead, Irsay, do it. If you want Saturday, hire Saturday. How did the Colts ever manage to win a SB?
