According to the Indy Star’s Joel Erickson, former Edmonton Football Team head coach Scott Milanovich of the CFL is expected to become the Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks coach—having previously been ‘considering the offer’:

Regarding Milanovich:

“Milanovich was a former NFL quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1996-99) and also played for NFL Europe’s Berlin Thunder (2000), the XFL’s Los Angeles Xtreme (2001), the Arena Football League’s Tampa Bay Storm (2002), and the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders (2003).

He has been Edmonton’s football coach for one year (although this past season was cancelled due to COVID-19), having previously served as the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterbacks coach (2017-19) and the Toronto Argonauts head coach (2012-16)—the latter where he was named the 2012 CFL Coach of the Year.

With the Jaguars as quarterbacks coach, Milanovich coached the likes of Blake Bortles, Chad Henne, Cody Kessler, Gardner Minshew, and Nick Foles.

He has over 18 years of professional coaching experience including other stints with NFL Europe and the CFL in various quarterbacks coach or offensive coordinator roles respectively.”

Milanovich has had a close working relationship with newly promoted Colts offensive coordinator Marcus Brady previously and has been highly regarded by Indianapolis head coach Frank Reich in the past:

He’ll join a Colts quarterbacks room that so far only has soon-to-be 2nd year quarterback Jacob Eason under contract—although the addition of a high profile veteran or top rookie starter is expected at some point this offseason.
