Colts Find Fall Guy; Fire Offensive Coordinator Pep Hamilton

PepHamiltonThe Indianapolis Colts stand at 3-5 after a Monday night overtime loss to the Carolina Panthers. While they somehow find themselves in first place in the terrible AFC South, Colts management made a change on Tuesday when the team fired offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.

Sure, it’s easy to pin the blame on Andrew Luck’s failing health. He suffered a shoulder injury during a Week 3 win over Tennessee and reportedly during the same game suffered broken ribs.

BUT SHHHHH.

The Colts believe in integrity and level playing fields.

Forget about the issue of them possibly illegally withholding information regarding Luck’s health in order to gain a competitive advantage; or them firing their offensive coordinator who isn’t responsible for his franchise quarterback throwing 12 interceptions in six games.

Keep choppin’ wood, Indy.

Rob Chudzinski now takes over Indy’s 16th ranked offense as the team’s offensive coordinator. Previously, Chudzinski led the Browns to a 4-12 record as head coach in 2013.

His last stint as offensive coordinator came in 2011 and ’12 with the Carolina Panthers. During that period, Carolina’s run game ranked third and ninth respectively in Chudzinski’s two years as offensive coordinator.
