Veteran NFL quarterback Frank Reich (Rike) enters his first season with the Cardinals after being named wide receivers coach on 2/8/12. He is in his fifth season as an NFL assistant coach after spending the previous four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. He served as the Colts wide receivers coach in 2011 after working with the team’s quarterbacks in 2009-10 and as an offensive staff assistant in 2008. He was a coaching intern with Indianapolis from 2006-07.

Last year, the Colts featured a pair of receivers in Reggie Wayne (960 yards) and Pierre Garcon (947 yards) who both went over 900 yards receiving despite All-Pro quarterback Peyton Manning missing the entire season. Reich previously coached Manning for two seasons, including in 2010 where he set team single season records for completions (450), attempts (679) and yards (4,700), while his completion total also set the NFL season record. Manning was selected to his 11th Pro Bowl in 2010, surpassing Johnny Unitas for the most by a Colts QB and tying Brett Favre for the most ever by an NFL QB.

In 2010, the Colts top ranked passing offense produced a franchise-record 13th consecutive season with 5,000+ net yards, and Manning extended his own NFL records with his 13th consecutive 25+ TD (33) season and an 11th 4,000+ yardage season. Manning finished the season with his 11th double-digit victory season, the most by an NFL QB in the Super Bowl era, and ranked 3rd in NFL history in touchdown passes. 

As part of the NFL’s second-ranked passing attack in 2009, Reich helped Manning achieve a 99.9 passer rating and a franchise record 68.8 completion percentage (393 of 571). He won an unprecedented fourth Associated Press Most Valuable Player Award (2003-04, 08-09), along with a 10th Pro Bowl bid. Manning also became the 4th NFL QB with 50,000 career yards. The Colts had seven fourth-quarter comeback wins, the most by any team since the 1970 NFL Merger, including a league-record five consecutive fourth-quarter comeback wins. 

Reich played quarterback in the NFL for 14 years after he was drafted in the third-round (57th overall) of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills out of the University of Maryland. He played in Buffalo from 1985-94 before signing with Carolina in 1995. Reich spent 1996 with the New York Jets and concluded his playing career with the Detroit Lions from 1997-98.

During his playing career, Reich engineered two of the greatest comebacks in football history. He first led the University of Maryland back from a 31-0 deficit in 1984 to a 42-40 victory over Miami. At the time, it was the greatest comeback in college football history. Then, in a 1992 AFC Wild Card Playoff game, starting for injured QB Jim Kelly, Reich led Buffalo back from a 35-3 third-quarter deficit to a 41-38 overtime comeback victory against Houston. It still stands as the greatest comeback in NFL history. Reich started the next game and led Buffalo to a victory against Pittsburgh in the Divisional Playoffs before Kelly returned to help lead the team to the Super Bowl.

Reich and his wife, Linda, have three children.
