Colts hired Jim Hostler as WRs coach.
It's one of the more desirable position coach jobs out there. Hostler will get to coach current stud T.Y. Hilton and be tasked with bringing up potential studs in Donte Moncrief and Duron Carter. Hostler was the 49ers' OC in 2007 before being fired after one season. Frank Gore publicly laid into Hostler that year for horrid play calling and league-worst offense. Fri, Feb 6, 2015 08:41:00 AM

Colts OC Pep Hamilton referenced the Patriots' 2007 "Spygate" scandal during his Wednesday presser.

A Jets assistant from 2003-05, Hamilton was asked about Gang Green's matchups with the Pats. "I do know for a fact that it was always a 60-minute chess match," Hamilton said. "It was ever-changing looks and disguises and they always tend to find ways to figure out some of your signals." It's a veiled reference, but an unmistakable one. Between Hamilton's comments and the signing of ex-Pat Deion Branch, the Colts are signaling they want to bring the fight to the Pats instead of vice versa.

Colts hired former Stanford OC Pep Hamilton as offensive coordinator.

Per CBS' Bruce Feldman, Hamilton recently interviewed for the head-coaching job at Oregon, left vacant by Chip Kelly's departure for the Eagles. Instead, Hamilton will reunite with Andrew Luck in Indianapolis after coordinating Luck's Stanford offense in 2011. The move is logical after the Colts lost Bruce Arians. Luck will be comfortable in Hamilton's system, which combines a power-running attack in frequent two-tight end sets with an intermediate to downfield passing game. Hamilton is also very familiar with Coby Fleener's strengths.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Stanford OC/QBs coach Pep Hamilton is a "leading candidate" to replace Bruce Arians as the Colts' offensive coordinator.

Hamilton is a logical target for Indy because he worked closely with Andrew Luck in 2011, and in 2010 was Stanford's wide receivers coach. The Colts' likeliest alternative would be to stay in-house with QBs coach Clyde Christensen. Christensen called plays in the Wild Card Round, when Arians was ill. Per Mort, the Colts are interviewing Hamilton on Friday.

The Colts announced Saturday morning that special teams coordinator Marwan Maalouf and the team have mutually agreed to part ways.

This is an interesting development considering the fact the Colts didn't necessarily struggle on special teams this season. While they ranked 20th for combined kick and punt returns, the overall unit was strong and Pro Football Focus ranks them tenth for the regular season. Maalouf's replacement has yet to be named.

Colts OC Bruce Arians has been released from the hospital, and is expected to begin interviewing for head-coaching jobs after a few days of rest.

Arians had been hospitalized since Sunday with an inner-ear infection. Arians has been linked to each of the Chargers, Bears, Browns and Eagles, but the Associated Press reports he's been crossed off one team's list. It's unlikely it was San Diego's, as Arians is considered the odds-on favorite to replace Norval Turner. The Bolts named Colts VP of football operations Tom Telesco their new general manager on Wednesday.

Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was hospitalized on Sunday morning with an inner ear infection and will not coach or call plays on Sunday versus the Ravens.

The Colts stress that Arians is "fine," but it's certainly a big loss for the Indianapolis offense. Quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen will call the plays on offense, but there's not expected to be a noticeable difference. On a separate note, Arians has been linked to head-coaching jobs with the Chargers and Bears this week.

Interest between the Chargers and Colts OC Bruce Arians is believed to be "mutual" regarding San Diego's head coaching vacancy.

Arians is clearly interested in a head coaching job, as he's already scheduled an interview with the Bears and figures to line one up shortly after the Bolts hire a general manager. A Tom Telesco-Arians package deal could make sense in San Diego. Arians and Telesco were both in the Colts' organization in 2012.

Appearing on The Herd Monday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen mentioned Colts interim HC Bruce Arians and Bengals OC Jay Gruden as potential candidates for the Chargers' head-coaching vacancy.

Gruden would bring a conservative-style West Coast offense to San Diego. Arians, who is a legitimate candidate for NFL Coach of the Year after effectively holding down the fort in Indianapolis following Chuck Pagano's leukemia diagnosis, will be a hot commodity in the coming weeks. His offense is also more similar to Norv Turner's with a downfield passing attack and power running game, so there would be less of a transition for Philip Rivers.

Colts replay consultant Jim Tressel has left the organization to take an administrative job at the University of Akron.

An Akron alum, Tressel is expected to serve in a Vice President capacity. The former Ohio State coach was briefly considered for the Colts' head-coaching job, but ultimately lost out to ex-Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano.

Clyde Christensen will stay with the Colts as QBs coach.

Christensen was believed to be on the Bears' radar as passing game coordinator/QBs coach to complement Mike Tice. With Bruce Arians now running the show, Christensen will likely surrender play-calling duties in Indy.

Colts hired Bruce Arians as offensive coordinator.

So much for Arians' "retirement." Forced out in Pittsburgh thanks in part to his reluctance to run the ball, Arians has landed in a place where passing is the tradition. One of the league's most aggressive play-callers during his five seasons with the Steelers, Arians' hiring is excellent news for whomever the Colts take with the No. 1 overall pick (assuming it's Stanford's Andrew Luck or Baylor's Robert Griffin III), and could be a sign the Colts don't plan to leave the training wheels on Peyton Manning's replacement for long.

XTRA 910 Arizona's Mike Jurecki reports former Steelers OC Bruce Arians is expected to accept the same position in Indianapolis.

Jurecki likely has the news because Arians was under consideration to be the Cardinals QBs coach. A notoriously pass-first play-caller, Arians would be an intriguing mentor for presumptive No. 1 pick Stanford QB Andrew Luck. Coincidentally, rumors surfaced Saturday that former Colts coach Jim Caldwell was meeting with Steelers coach Mike Tomlin with regards to replacing Arians.

Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman reportedly interviewed for the Colts' head coaching vacancy over the weekend.

Trestman worked in the NFL as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator from 1985-2004 before leading the Alouettes to back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010. Viewed by many as an offensive mastermind, Trestman would be a bold but welcome departure from the norm by free-thinking owner Jim Irsay.
Tue, Jan 24, 2012 08:00:00 PM reports the Colts will interview 49ers ST coach Brad Seely for their head-coaching vacancy.

Seely has coached NFL special teams in some capacity since 1989, and sported an elite unit in his first year in San Francisco this season. Seely is one of at least seven candidates believed to be under consideration to replace Jim Caldwell in Indianapolis.
