Bio

Reich was hired as the Chargers' offensive coordinator on Jan. 14, 2013 after spending one year as the quarterbacks coach. 

He spent the previous seven seasons coaching with the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals after earning a coaching internship with the Colts in 2006. After two seasons (2006-07) as an intern, the Colts promoted him to offensive assistant in ’08, working with their wide receivers and quarterbacks. Reich worked with a talented cast that included quarterback Peyton Manning and wide receivers Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon. He spent the 2012 season as the wide receivers coach for the Arizona Cardinals where he worked with six-time Pro Bowl pass-catcher Larry Fitzgerald.

A third-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 1985, Reich played 14 NFL seasons, including 10 with Buffalo (1985-94), one with Carolina (1995), one with the New York Jets (1996), and two with Detroit (1997-98).  He retired in 1998.

Reich was involved in two of the greatest comeback victories in football history, one as a collegian and the other as a pro. During his senior season at the University of Maryland in 1984, Reich led the Terrapins to a 42-40 win over the University of Miami in a game that his squad trailed 31-0. At the time, it was the largest deficit ever overcome in a college game. Nine seasons later as the backup quarterback for the Buffalo Bills (1992), Reich started for an injured Jim Kelly in an AFC Wild Card Playoff game against Houston and rallied the Bills from a 35-3 deficit in the third quarter to a 41-38 win over the Oilers. To this day, it is still the greatest comeback in NFL history.           

A native of Freeport, N.Y., Reich grew up in Lebanon, Pa., where his father was a high school coach. His younger brother, Joe, is currently the head coach at Wingate (N.C.) University.    

Reich and his wife, Linda, have three children.
