The Indianapolis Colts are conducting interviews for their vacant head coach position. After his stint as interim head coach, Jeff Saturday has returned for a second interview with the organization, indicating he’s of significant interest to step into the role full-time. CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson reports that owner Jim Irsay “has desires” to hire Saturday as the full-time head coach, but may be receiving some pushback from his front office.

Via Anderson on Twitter:

“In Indy, I’m told Jim Irsay still has desires to hire Jeff Saturday, but some who work w/ the owner or have his ear, while feeling Saturday is a great person—are not in favor of him as a HC, per source. We’ll see if the #Colts make it through the list of expected 2nd interviews.”

Per Anderson’s report, the consensus around the Colts’ front office is that, while they value Saturday and consider him a great person, he’s not the right man for the head coaching job.

It seems the Colts are tip-toeing around the fact that Saturday did an abysmal job during his tenure as interim head coach, and is wildly inexperienced to be an NFL head coach, having never coached football beyond the high school level. Despite that, his ties to Irsay seem to be paying dividends for him, as the owner appears to be strongly considering making Saturday the organization’s full-time head coach.

The front office may not be on board, but they’ll have to convince Irsay that there’s a better fit for the vacancy.

Saturday took over as the Colts’ head coach in a surprise move following the firing of Frank Reich midway through the season. In eight games as the Indianapolis Colts head coach, Jeff Saturday led the team to a 1-7 record, winning his first game before dropping seven straight to close out the year.
