The terminations of the Teerlinck’s are the latest in a series of personnel decisions that have completely reshaped the team’s front office and coaching staff following their disappointing 2-14 season. Earlier this week the Colts made the decision to fire head coach Jim Caldwell despite the three-year coach posting winning records in his first two seasons. Indianapolis also fired longtime front office mainstays Bill and Chris Polian immediately following the season.
