The Arizona Cardinals interviewed Frank Reich for the team’s open head-coaching position on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

ESPN’s Dan Graziano was the first to report the move.

Reich was most recently the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts from 2018-22 before getting fired on Nov. 7.

In his only career stint at the helm, he went 40-33-1 for a .555 winning percentage to go along with a 1-2 playoff record.

The one playoff win was in his lone season with quarterback Andrew Luck, who unexpectedly retired during the preseason in 2019.

Before that, Reich won Super Bowl LII with the Philadelphia Eagles as an offensive coordinator, where he served in that position from 2016-17.

Other stops in Reich’s coaching career featured the San Diego Chargers from 2013-15, where served as the offensive coordinator (2014-15) and quarterbacks coach (2013).

He was also the Cardinals wide receivers coach in 2012 under then-head coach Ken Wisenhunt after being the Colts wide receivers coach in 2011, quarterbacks coach from 2009-10, offensive coaching staff assistant in 2008 and coaching intern from 2006-07.

In the entirety of Reich’s coaching tenure, he has been the position coach, coordinator or head coach of Hall of Famer Peyton Manning (2006-11), WR Larry Fitzgerald (2012), QB Phillip Rivers (2013-15) and Luck (2018).

Reich has also already interviewed for the Carolina Panthers’ open head-coaching position.

As a player, he was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the third round (No. 57 overall) of the 1985 NFL Draft out of Maryland.

Reich finished his career as a quarterback with a 40-36 touchdown-to-interception ratio while throwing for 6,075 yards and having a 72.9 passer rating.
