The Indianapolis Colts busy offseason rages on. Newly hired head coach Frank Reich is currently in the process of filling out his coaching staff - and now thanks to the hire of former Iowa State offensive coordinator Tom Manning, he now has his tight ends coach.

Despite having no experience in the NFL, Manning has gained respect at the collegiate level. Over the past two seasons when he was calling plays, he lead Iowa State to their two most productive passing offenses in the Cyclones history.

In addition to being the offensive coordinator, Manning is also held the title of offensive line coach. In 2015, he was named Football Scoop Offensive Line Coach of the Year.

Here is a complete list of Manning’s coaching experience:

2016-17 Iowa State – Offensive Coordinator, Offensive Line

2012-15 Toledo - Offensive Line

2011 Mount Union - Offensive Line

2010 Toledo - Director of Football Operations

2009 Toledo - Graduate Assistant

2007-08 Emory & Henry (VA) College - Offensive Line, Run-Game Coordinator

2006 Massillon (OH) Jackson H.S. - Offensive Line

The addition of Manning is an intriguing one, and will be interesting to see what he can do to improve the play of the tight end position by a group that is lead by Jack Doyle who is coming off his first pro bowl season.
