Pep Hamilton on Colts radar to replace Arians

PEP HAMILTON AP

As the Colts try to replace offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, they’re going to start with a guy who has already proven to be able to handle what they do.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton is “a leading candidate” to take over the same job in Indianapolis.

Hamilton’s actual title at Stanford is “Andrew Luck Director of Offense,” since the position was endowed by an anonymous donor who wanted to honor the former Stanford and now-Colts quarterback. That makes it sound more academic, I suppose.

Hamilton was also mentioned as a candidate for the Jets coordinator job, but his familiarity with Luck (and the fact he’s Andrew Luck and not Mark Sanchez) probably makes the Colts job a better fit.

    An anonymous donor has donated money to Stanford for that title.

    Still trying to figure out whether the “Andrew Luck Director of Offense” line was a joke or serious.

    I thought Greg Roman was Andrew Luck’s OC at Stanford?

    Roman was Lucks oc there…this story is misleading

    Roman was Luck’s OC until Andrew’s last year. Hamilton was his OC in 2011, when Shaw took over as HC for Harbaugh.

    No, you just can’t read. Nowhere in the article does it say he was Andrew Luck’s OC. His job title is “Andrew Luck Director of Offense”. If you go luck at Stanford’s website you would see he was Luck’s OC for his last season.

    This would be a great fit.
