Reggie Wayne is one of the most prolific receivers in Indianapolis Colts history. And now he’s making a name for himself as one of their coaches.

The Colts fired experimental head coach hire Jeff Saturday after a disappointing end to the 2022 season and replaced him with 38-year-old Shane Steichen, who is the third-youngest head coach in the NFL.

Despite Wayne’s NFL pedigree, Steichen made the legend re-interview for the wide receivers coaching position.

“I had to submit my resume, and I had to do my interviews and things like that and show that I was worth coming back for another year,” Wayne told Stephen Holder of ESPN.

“I had some unfinished business,” he added.

Wayne even successfully lobbied the Colts to draft former North Carolina Tar Heels wide receiver Josh Downs in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Wayne, at 44 years old, is the second-youngest head coach on Steichen’s offensive staff, and that’s by design according to the new frontman.

“I kind of wanted to go that route offensively,” Steichen said. “Young energy, youth, hungry. I kind of wanted to build that kind of culture offensively from a coaching staff, just being able to relate to the players, bring that energy, bring that relatability. Times are changing … Just [bringing] that energy into that building every single day is what we want to get done.”

Colts fans will certainly hope the new approach brings better results for their team.
