Colts announce two more staff moves


Colts Coach Chuck Pagano is keeping two assistants from last season on in new roles for 2016.

Veteran coach Jim Hostler will be the tight ends coach, and Tim Berbenich will stay as offensive assistant/assistant quarterbacks coach after being a defensive assistant in 2015.

Hostler had been the team’s wide receivers coach. In 16 NFL seasons he’s also been an assistant with the Bills, Ravens, 49ers, Jets, Saints and Chiefs.

The team’s release on Hostler and Berbenich said the 2015 staff has been finalized. The Colts cleaned out their defensive staff, hired and shuffled some offensive coaches and lost assistant special teams coach Brant Boyer to the Jets. Former Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin came on as assistant head coach and will work with the offensive line.

  1. I find it pretty ironic the Philbin is the Offensive Line coach. It was the Dolphins OL players that ran amok, and it’s the coaching staff that failed to police that behavior in the locker room & practice field.

  2. Good luck to the Colts with Coach Joe as Offensive Line coach.
    He was a large part of the problem with the offense/ The locker room behavior was ridiculous. Jonathon Martin was what he was, say no more, and now /Ritchie is back with Buffalo and made the Pro Bowl. That was a complete waste of time and money. Only one person caused all of that, and he’s not playing anymore because no one wants him.
