Colts HC Frank Reich actually married an Indianapolis couple.
For anybody who thought that Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich was exerting all of his energy preparing for training camp and the upcoming season, well, you’re wrong. However, it’s not for the reason you probably think.
As it turns out, the 58-year-old — who’s an ordained minister — was busy tying the knot for an Indy-based couple, who actually have legitimate ties to the Colts organization.
The husband, Parks Frazier, was hired by the franchise in 2018 to serve as an assistant to the head coach, whereas the wife, Caroline Cann, is a former reporter for Colts.com, which is actually how she met her new life partner.
The story is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
“As an ordained minister, one of the greatest privileges is performing a wedding,” said Reich. “It’s just so fun to see two people coming together. It was especially, especially meaningful for when you know them both. And then on top of that, when you know them like they’re family.”
“For the two of them to ask me to perform the wedding, I was blown away. It was a great privilege and it was a lot of fun. It was a special day. It was a special day. There are a great couple and really, I was privileged to be part of that ceremony” the third-year head coach continued.
Seriously, how can you not love this guy? Most coaches keep a low-profile during the offseason away from football. We’re not necessarily surprised that the Colts boss doesn’t adhere to those standards.
However, not in a million years would we have expected Reich to reveal that he stays busy marrying couples.
Fans in Indianapolis should be thrilled to have Reich as the Colts coach of the future. Of course, lengthy tenures are never guaranteed, especially in the NFL, but Reich clearly has the backing of general manager Chris Ballard and the rest of the front office.
This probably wasn’t the news that Colts Nation was expecting to hear with training camp officially underway, but the sheer uniqueness of this story should satisfy their appetites for the time being.
