The Indianapolis Colts confirmed today the hiring of former Stanford University offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton to the same role with the Indianapolis Colts. Hamilton replace Bruce Arians who was named head coach of the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday.
“Pep Hamilton is a sharp, detailed and innovative coach who is a rising star in this business,” said Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson. "Everything I have gathered about him besides his impressive football background is that he expects greatness from himself and those around him. His great success at Stanford and his familiarity with Andrew and Coby is obviously a major plus for us moving forward. That combined with his prior NFL experience makes this a very strong and positive acquisition for the Horseshoe. We couldn't be happier to have Pep part of the Colt's family."
Hamilton's previous NFL experience includes stints with the Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49'ers and Kansas City Chiefs. He served as an offensive assistant coach with all three teams. Additionally, Hamilton interned in player personnel for the Chiefs, Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens.
“I am thrilled to have Pep as our new offensive coordinator,” said Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano. “He’s had success everywhere he’s been and his familiarity with guys like Andrew and Coby will make him a great fit for our team. I can’t wait to start working with him as we get ready for next year.”
