When the Indianapolis Colts decided to hire Jeff Saturday as their new head coach, people were shocked.

However, an NFL coach is revealing how he too is shocked by this hire.

So which NFL coach seems shocked by Saturday’s hiring in Indianapolis?

A friend of the former Colts head coach gives his opinion on Saturday’s hiring

Matt Eberflus, who is friends with former Colts head coach Frank Reich, was “taken back” by Saturday’s hiring.

The shock from Eberflus is a feeling many fans have, as Saturday has no previous NFL coaching experience.

However, the decision to hire him in Indianapolis came from team owner Jim Irsay.

He sees Saturday’s inexperience as a plus, despite many seeing it as a negative.

But will he be fearless in his first NFL game as a head coach?

Saturday will have to rely on other coaches in Indy to help him

Without that NFL coaching experience, Saturday will have to rely on the team’s other coaches.

While he might not use analytics, which Irsay might like, he needs someone to make the right play calls.

This means relying on offensive and defensive managers more than ever to make the right calls.

While he may have some advantages to being a coach without experience, this lack of experience could also hurt him.

Unless he has some magic formula for playing on Sunday, he needs the other coaches to help him.

Irsay has now created an interesting situation in Indianapolis by letting Saturday take over the coaching duties.
