Colts Hire Two More Coaches For The Offense

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Colts bring in two more assistant head coaches to help new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.

New offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton will likely bring 'Spider 3Y Banana' to the Colts offense in 2013. However, to do it, he's going to need some assistants. The Colts have completed filling their coaching staff vacancies, hiring Hal Hunter as the team's assistant offensive line coach and Tim Berbenich as an offensive assistant.

Sadly, neither has a name as fun as Jim Bob Cooter. Ah, the good ole days!

Hunter comes to Indianapolis via San Diego. He spent last season as the offensive coordinator-offensive line coach for the Chargers, but was let go after head coach Norv Turner was sent packing. From 2006-2012, he worked as San Diego's offensive line coach. Prior to that, he worked as offensive coordinator for Indiana University during the 2000-2001 season, back when Antwaan Randle El was slinging passes for Cam Cameron's team in Bloomington.

Joe Gilbert was promoted as the Colts new offensive line coach after Harold Goodwin, last season's o-line coach, followed Bruce Arians to Arizona. Hunter will be working with Gilbert to mold a better interior line. Andrew Luck was sacked over 40 times in 2012.

Tim Berbenich worked as the Assistant Wide Receivers Coach in Tampa Bay last season. Prior to that, Berbenich worked with Pep Hamilton when the two were assistants with the New York Jets in 2004. That Jets team ran a version of the West Coast Offense with Chad Pennington as their quarterback.
