Online petition launched to prevent Jeff Saturday from becoming coach

Jeff Saturday is one of four reported finalists so far for the Colts head coaching job. It’s a growing list that could reach at least seven candidates and features former head coaches, Super Bowl-winning assistants and current coordinators.

These are coaches with experience and reputation in the coaching profession, which Saturday is not. His inclusion in this finalist group for this kind of job has rubbed some of the Colts fan base the wrong way.

Now they are trying to do something about it.

Colts fans are sharing a petition through Change.org titled: “Don’t hire Jeff Saturday as head coach.” It was launched on Wednesday afternoon and by evening it had more than 900 verified signatures.

Shawn Ward, the fan who launched the page, sent his message to owner Jim Irsay.

“We as Colts fans will always cherish the memories of the (Super Bowl) XLI team, but we don’t want Jeff Saturday as the head coach of this team!” Ward wrote. “Hire someone with experience and save your fan base from revolting.”

By signing and sharing the petition and tweeting the hashtag #SaturdayLeave at Irsay, fans are voicing their frustrations to the man ultimately in charge.
