INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Thursday that he has hired Ted Monachino as his new defensive coordinator.
The former Baltimore Ravens assistant coached linebackers the past four years and outside linebackers in 2010 and 2011, when Pagano also was part of that staff.
Monachino replaces Greg Manusky, who was let go Wednesday.
Pagano said he likes Monachino’s familiarity with the scheme Indy runs. He also called Monachino a “great motivator.”
Before going to Baltimore, Monachino spent four seasons as Jacksonville’s defensive line coach and five seasons in the same post at Arizona State. IN addition, he’s coached at Boise State, Southwest Missouri State, James Madison and TCU after coaching two high school teams in Missouri.
