Browns assistant head coach Pep Hamilton has accepted the position of assistant head coach/passing-game coordinator at the University of Michigan.
The Browns are cleaning house with their defensive staff and will have hirings to make on offense, too. The former Colts offensive coordinator, Hamilton played second fiddle to offensive-minded Hue Jackson during his one year with the Browns. At Michigan, Hamilton will reunite with Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh after the two coached together at Stanford in 2010. Jan 9 - 5:36 PM

Updating an earlier report, Browns coach Hue Jackson said he expects associate head coach/QBs coach Pep Hamilton to remain with the team.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has been telling recruits that Hamilton will join his staff, but Jackson is still holding out hope that he'll stay in Cleveland. "I feel very comfortable that Pep will stay," said Jackson. "We want him to stay." Hamilton has ties to Harbaugh having worked with him at Stanford in 2010.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has been telling recruits "for a few days" that Pep Hamilton will be part of the team's coaching staff.

Rapoport reported Saturday that Hamilton was expected to join Michigan's staff and now it looks like the move is indeed happening. Hamilton will be the second coach to leave the Browns this offseason after the team fired DC Ray Horton and immediately replaced him with Rams DC Gregg Williams. Hamilton served as Harbaugh's WRs coach at Stanford in 2010 before Harbaugh left to coach the 49ers a year later.
Jan 8 - 10:39 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Browns assistant head coach/offense Pep Hamilton is considering leaving the organization for a job with the University of Michigan.

Normally we assume coaches are being forced out in situations like this, but Rapoport reports the Browns want Hamilton to stay. Hamilton is as close to an offensive coordinator as the Browns have, but head coach Hue Jackson runs the show. Perhaps Hamilton wants more responsibilities or, as Rapoport reports, just likes coaching in college more than the pros. Hamilton worked under Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh when he was at Stanford in 2010.
Jan 7 - 9:06 AM

Browns hired Pep Hamilton as associate head coach/offense.

Hamilton was canned as the Colts' offensive coordinator in November but will get a second chance in Cleveland alongside Hue Jackson. The Browns still need a quarterback, but at least it looks like they'll get Josh Gordon back.

Browns coach Hue Jackson is meeting with Pep Hamilton on Friday.

Hamilton was fired as the Colts' offensive coordinator back in early November. The Browns axed most of their coaching staff, but have so far retained OC John DeFilippo and QBs coach Kevin O'Connell. It's possible the Browns are considering Hamilton as a replacement for DeFilippo or WRs coach Joker Phillips. Hamilton was previously a wide receivers coach for the Jets in 2005.

Colts fired OC Pep Hamilton.

We were tough on Hamilton as a rookie coordinator in 2013, but his play-calling was not the issue this season, or in 2014 when the Colts scored 458 points. Andrew Luck's wildly erratic play and GM Ryan Grigson's hollowed-out roster are why the Colts are 3-5. That being said, the man replacing Hamilton — assistant Rob Chudzinski — could very well be an upgrade. Being bandied about as a potential head coach before the season, Hamilton will land on his feet.

The Raiders interviewed Colts OC Pep Hamilton for their head-coaching vacancy on Sunday night.

The interview took place mere hours after Indianapolis' Wild Card Round win over Cincinnati. Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie was present for this interview after allegedly not accompanying owner Mark Davis to interview Broncos DC Jack Del Rio. Interviewing Hamilton satisfied the Rooney Rule for the Raiders, so Oakland is free to hire a head coach immediately.

The Bills have requested to interview Colts OC Pep Hamilton for their head-coaching vacancy.

Buffalo is casting a wide net in their search. Hamilton joins Bengals OC Hue Jackson, Lions DC Teryl Austin, Chargers OC Frank Reich, Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, ex-Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, among others to be linked to the Bills' opening. Hamilton called plays for the NFL's No. 1 passing offense in 2014.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Raiders have requested to interview Colts OC Pep Hamilton for their head-coaching vacancy.

Hamilton has run the Colts' offense the past two seasons. After a mind-numbing stubbornness to run the ball in 2013, Hamilton cut loose this season and put the ball in his young, stud quarterback Andrew Luck's hands. Hamilton guided the Colts to a No. 3 overall offensive finish with the league's top passing attack. Hamilton worked under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford before coming to the NFL.

Colts OC Pep Hamilton has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Vanderbilt head-coaching job.

Hamilton was viewed as a finalist for the gig, and Vanderbilt reportedly had a plane ready to pick him up Friday morning. He wants to remain with the Colts. Hamilton's offense was on the dry side for the vast majority of the season, but he finally decided to open things up a bit late in the year and put the ball in Andrew Luck's hands instead of running Trent Richardson into the backs of his offensive linemen. Hamilton is a bright mind but has to do a better job of utilizing Luck's arm in 2014. Vanderbilt hired Stanford DC Derek Mason.
Fri, Jan 17, 2014 10:24:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Colts OC Pep Hamilton is a candidate for Vanderbilt's head-coaching job.

Hamilton didn't distinguish himself as the Colts' play-caller this season, but had better luck as Stanford's offensive coordinator from 2011-12. Hamilton has more NFL than college experience, but his success at an academically-minded football school is likely what's piqued Vandy's interest. For the Colts, losing their coordinator could be a blessing in disguise, as Hamilton had a rocky first year as Indy's coordinator. Aside from his unwavering commitment to the Colts' go-nowhere run game, Hamilton stuck with Darrius Heyward-Bey as his No. 2 receiver for far too long, waiting for ages to get young wideouts LaVon Brazill and Da'Rick Rogers more involved. If Hamilton stays for 2014, he has to do a better job of utilizing Indy's most-valuable asset, Andrew Luck's arm.
