Colts hire Ron Prince

The Indianapolis Colts have added another former college head coach to their staff, as former Kansas State coach Ron Prince is the latest assistant brought on board.

Tom Dienhart of Rivals reports that Prince will serve as assistant offensive line coach. Pete Metzelaars had been the Colts’ assistant offensive line coach, and he’ll take on the role of offensive line coach with the retirement of Howard Mudd.

Prince was the head coach at Kansas State from 2006 to 2008. In 2009 he was the special teams coach at Virginia. He was an offensive line coach at four different schools in the 1990s.

Prince is the second former college head coach the Colts have hired as a position coach. Last week the Colts hired former Illinois head coach (and Bears offensive coordinator) Ron Turner as receivers coach.

  1. College head coaches- worried about getting poopcanned? Not to worry. You can always go the NFL and get a wonderful job as an assistant………..offensive…………line……………coach.
    Sure, you’d make more money working less hours selling used cars, but hey- someday maybe your boss may retire and you can be offensive……….line…………coach.
    Unless you land with the Raiders, in which case you’ll be running the place in no time.

  2. Don’t worry obout Ronny boy not getting paid, he and his agent stole $2.5 mil on the way out of K-State for payment on no bowl appearances and very little in the way of wins. This guy is human trash and he knows it. He is with the Colts to be paid and nothing more, to call him a coach would be an insult to those who actually perform their coaching duties to, you know, make players better. I wish nothing but the worst for this A$$HOLE.

    Don’t beat around the bush, tell us how you really feel. lol
    I agree with you completely. It’s stunning how much these coaches walk away with for failing. There should be clauses in coaches contracts that allow the school to lower buyouts if certain milestones have not been met.
