When the Colts hired offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, they already had an offensive coordinator in Clyde Christensen.
On Tuesday, the Colts officially announced that Christensen will remain with the team.
He’ll be the quarterbacks coach for 2012, which means that he’ll continue to work directly with Peyton Manning in the unlikely-but-still-not-impossible event owner Jim Irsay decides to pay Peyton another $28 million to stay in Indy.
As to that latter point, there’s apparently a new development. Stay tuned for more.
Meanwhile, the announcement that Christensen will remain with the team was included in a press release unveil the other new additions to Chuck Pagano’s coaching staff. They are: assistant special teams coach Brant Boyer, defensive line coach Gary Emanuel, linebackers coach Jeff Fitzgerald, assistant offensive line coach Joe Gilbert, secondary coach Mike Gillhamer, offensive quality control coach Frank Giufre, tight ends coach Alfredo Roberts, defensive quality control coach Brad White, and wide receivers coach Charlie Williams.
