Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano hired Jim Herrman as linebackers coach and Darren Krein as head strength and conditioning coach Wednesday, then continued his staff shake-up by announcing offensive line coach Hal Hunter would not return.
Rob Chudzinski spent the last two seasons with the Colts, most recently as associate head coach this season.
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.
Greg Manusky presided over a defense that was never able to match the offense’s productivity, and this season, the Colts’ defense was ranked No. 26 overall, No. 25 against the run and No. 24 against the pass.
According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport the Indianapolis Colts have fired defensive coordinator Greg Manusky.
Chuck Pagano received a four-year deal to replace his expiring contract while Ryan Grigson got three-years added to the one year he had on the original deal he signed in 2012.
After Pagano and team owner Jim Irsay met most of Monday afternoon, team spokesman Avis Roper said no announcement was expected to come before Tuesday.
