Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck lost his offensive coordinator Bruce Arians to the Arizona Cardinals, as he was named their new head coach.
But he is getting a familiar face as his new offensive coordinator. The Stanford “Andrew Luck Director of Offense” Pep Hamilton has agreed to become the new Colts offensive coordinator.
He was on a short list to succeed Arians, and interviewed with the team on Firday. He also interviewed for the vacant New York Jets offensive coordinator that went to former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg as their offensive coordinator.
He came to Stanford in 2010, as their wide receivers coach. He was promoted to Stanford’s Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach in 2011, before being named the “Andrew Luck Director of Offense” this past season.
Prior to Stanford, he was the Chicago Bears quarterbacks coach from 2007 through 2009. He also spent a season as quarterbacks coach with the San Francisco 49ers in 2006.
He spent three seasons with the New York Jets from 2003 through 2005. In 2003, he was the Jets Offensive Quality Control Coach, before being promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2004.
He was the Jets wide receivers coach in 2005. He also spent four seasons early in his career at Howard University.
He was the team’s quarterbacks coach from 1997 to 1998. He was the team’s offensive coordinator from 1999 to 2001.
