Reich also served as the San Diego Chargers' offensive coordinator for two seasons after initially being hired as the team's quarterbacks coach in 2013.
The person spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had yet been made.
Indianapolis announced that Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had agreed to take the job on February 6 and scheduled an introductory news conference for the next day. McDaniels backed out of the deal eight hours later. He didn't start coaching until a decade after he retired from his 14-year National Football League playing career. Losing both Reich and DeFilippo would disrupt a coaching staff that helped the Eagles to the Super Bowl, although it's one of the consequences of success.
The Eagles won Super Bowl LII by shredding the Patriots' defense in a 41-33 win last Sunday. And now he will be paired with the architect of the second-biggest playoff comeback in Andrew Luck.
"We are excited to have Frank Reich as our new head coach".

Reich is about to join Dallas' Jason Garrett, Pederson and New Orleans' Sean Payton as the fourth head coach who played quarterback in the NFL.
His coaching career began with the Colts in 2006 when he was hired as an intern before being promoted to offensive assistant and later quarterbacks coach.
Now, after having his name bandied about the past couple of years as a head coaching candidate, he'll have a chance to run the show.
Josh McDaniels was the hot-shot offensive guru whom teams wanted to be their next head coach over the past few years.
Luck missed the entire 2017 season after having surgery for a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, going on injured reserve in November because of lingering pain after he started throwing a football.
Despite the ugliness of the McDaniels situation, Colts general manager Chris Ballard still went through with a previously scheduled press conference on Wednesday that was originally supposed to include McDaniels.
