Colts hold second HC interview with Jeff Saturday
The Indianapolis Colts are expected to interview interim head coach Jeff Saturday a second time for their head coach vacancy Wednesday.
While Saturday is the least-qualified candidate for the role, it was expected that owner Jim Irsay would want him to be among the finalists. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Saturday’s interview is scheduled for Wednesday, and that the team is expected to interview seven finalists.

Saturday had an incredible playing career with the Colts, but his tenure as the interim head coach went about as poorly as possible. The team went 1-7 during the final eight games of the season while ending the campaign on a seven-game losing streak.
It has become clear through the process of the Colts searching for a new head coach that Saturday wouldn’t be on the list for general manager Chris Ballard. But Irsay’s involvement has made him a finalist.
