The Indianapolis Colts finally hired a new head coach in former Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Shane Steichen.
After re-tooling the coaching staff, this franchise hopes to get back into title contention soon.
Although, throughout the hiring process, the Colts were given a ton of flack for giving Jeff Saturday a chance. Especially since his run as the interim head coach didn’t go over too well.
With that in mind, Saturday won over football fans everywhere after he sent a classy message to the Colts for hiring Steichen as the new head coach.

Just absolute class. Even though he’s not going to be the long-term head coach of the Colts, Jeff Saturday proves to be a great example of a human being.
Additionally, NFL fans are all for it too.
Hey Siri, define class act. Siri: “Jeff Saturday…”

Lucas is very grateful.
Jeff, all I have to say is thank you for thinking about my team. You stepped up in the middle of the misery, but you did it for the Colts. Although it might not have been the best decision, you tried to do everything you could for our team. That’s something I will never forget!

So, the Colts move on with a new head coach while Jeff Saturday wins the football world over again. Hopefully, we see him back on ESPN, as he’s a solid analyst.
