The Colts might need to make some changes on offense this offseason, but they don’t need to worry about changing coordinators.

According to Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com, Colts play-caller Pep Hamilton has pulled his name from consideration for the head coaching job at Vanderbilt.

That means he wasn’t going to get it, but it’s still good news for the Colts, who have other issues to worry about.

Hamilton’s interest in a college job isn’t unusual, given his background as the offensive coordinator at Stanford. But this keeps him working with quarterback Andrew Luck, and a chance to build on a playoff team.

UPDATE: 10:59 a.m. ET: Feldman followed up with a report that the job was offered to Hamilton, and a plane was ready to pick him up before he declined.
