INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Indianapolis Colts hired Pep Hamilton as the team's offensive coordinator Saturday.
Hamilton comes to Indianapolis following three seasons on the Stanford University coaching staff, his last two as the team's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
"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."
Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano says Hamilton's knowing some players will lead the season in a good direction.
"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."
Andrew Luck is also looking forward to reuniting with Hamilton in Indianapolis next season.
"First of all, I'm very happy for Coach Arians and I wish him nothing but the best in Arizona," said Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. "I really enjoyed working with him this season, and I'm very thankful for all of his guidance. I'm thrilled to be able to reunite with Coach Pep here in Indianapolis. He was a tremendous mentor of mine at Stanford and he is going to have our offense playing at a high, energetic level."
