Joe Judge Reportedly Following McDaniels to Indianapolis to Become Colts Special Teams Coordinator

New England Patriots special teams coordinator reportedly following Josh McDaniels to Indianapolis to fill same role

Considering that Josh McDaniels has still not ‘officially’ been named the Indianapolis Colts next head coach, his supporting cast of coordinators and position coaches sure is beginning to fill out. There is still a bit of uncertainty surrounding the offensive coordinator position as we’ve heard that Darell Bevell and Jake Peetz were being considered recently, but it appears that the special teams coordinator is one lest position that needs to be filled.

WEEI’s Kirk Minihane is reporting that Joe Judge — current Patriots special teams coordinator — will be coming to Indianapolis along with McDaniels to fill the same position with the Colts.

Beginning in 2009 Judge began working under Nick Saban at Alabama, as a special teams assistant (2009-11), and then moved on to the Patriots with Bill Belichick in the same role from 2012-14, and then as the special teams coordinator for the last 3 seasons. Previous to that, Judge played college ball at Mississippi State from 2000-04 and went on to become a graduate assistant from 2005-07 before moving on to Birmingham-Southern where he was the linebackers coach for a season in 2008.

We should be hearing something very soon in regards to McDaniels being given the job, as well as a fairly continuous hiring process to fill out the rest of his staff. We’re finally there folks.
