According to Fox Sports Senior Reporter Alex Marvez, former Indianapolis Colts secondary coach Mike Gillhamer has been hired to the same position for the Cincinnati Bearcats football team:
Gillhamer was fired by the Colts along with a number of other assistant coaches in early January. In his place, the Colts hired defensive backs coach Greg Williams in what was part of a complete overhaul of the team’s coaching staff.
Gillhamer spent four seasons as the Colts secondary coach (2012-15), where Vontae Davis developed into a shutdown cornerback under his tutelage.
However, the Colts secondary routinely struggled against elite quarterbacks, and new defensive coordinator Ted Monachino opted to go in a different direction entirely.
Prior to joining the Colts, Gillhamer was a secondary coach for the University of Illinois (2011), so he has prior collegiate coaching experience.
Even before that, Gillhamer worked as a secondary coach for the Carolina Panthers (2004-10).
The veteran secondary coach has over 37 years of coaching experience. We wish him well in his future coaching endeavors.
