Colts promote Rob Chudzinski to offensive coordinator
Friday January 8th, 2016

The Indianapolis Colts have promoted associate head coach Rob Chudzinski to the role of offensive coordinator, the team announced Thursday.

Chudzinski replaces former offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, who was fired by head coach Chuck Pagano on Nov. 3. Chudzinski took over play-calling duties after the team decided to part ways with Hamilton.

The 47-year-old was hired by the Colts as a special assistant to Pagano before the 2014 season. The two have history working together going back to their college coaching days, working at Miami from 1996-2000.

Chudzinski spent one unsuccessful season as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, finishing with a 4–12 record in 2013. He previously worked as the offensive coordinator of the Browns from 2007-2008 and the Carolina Panthers from 2011-2012.

The Colts ended the season with an 8–8 record, finishing second in the AFC South and failing to make the playoffs.
