Recently hired wide receivers coach Reggie Wayne seems to be having a great time coaching up the wideouts for the Indianapolis Colts.
After several requests, Reggie Wayne finally joined the Indianapolis Colts as a coach. This offseason, he was hired as the wide receivers coach and tasked with developing a young room of wideouts to help improve Indy’s passing game.
After turning down invitations to be a full-time coach for years, Wayne finally accepted and it seems to have been perfect timing because he’s all in. From the NFL Draft to OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Reggie Wayne seems to be loving his new role.
Wayne’s joy was already evident in his interviews and photos released, but fans got to see it in full action after Wayne tweeted out a video of him coaching during the offseason program.
Reggie Wayne is having fun coaching with Colts
In this two-minute clip, Wayne looks like a coach that any player would want to play for. He brings the energy, has jokes, and also the necessary knowledge to help the receivers improve. You could tell that the receivers are already comfortable with Wayne by their joking relationship.
Indianapolis had something special in Wayne as a player and it appears that Indy has something special in him as a coach as well. Earlier in the offseason, Chris Ballard said the Colts didn’t feel pressured to add a veteran receiver because Wayne is essentially the perfect veteran receiver, this clip shows that.
Hopefully, Wayne’s passion and relationships with these young receivers translate into their development. Many of the young guys have flashed talent but haven’t been able to consistently put it all together.
If Wayne can help build them into consistent receiving threats it will greatly benefit the Colts. Indy’s wide receiver room is the unit under the most scrutiny for this team. They will have to have a big season to silence all critics. Hopefully, Coach Reggie Wayne will be able to help them accomplish that.
