After a wild offseason, the Colts have found their new head coach in Frank Reich and he continues to fill out his coaching staff in Indianapolis.
Because of the complications from the Josh McDaniels situation following the Super Bowl, Frank Reich didn’t have the benefit of hiring his entire coaching staff. The Colts had already signed a few assistant coaches to work under McDaniels, and they will honor their contracts under a different head coach in 2018.
Reich did get to hire most of his coaching staff along with the Colts’ front office, and there is a nice mix of established veteran coaches and young up-and-coming minds coming to Indianapolis.
We’ve written up profiles on many of the Colts’ new assistant coaches, which can be found at the bottom of this article, but there have been a few recent additions.
New assistant quarterbacks coach Marcus Brady played quarterback in the Canadian Football League, and he has been a coach in the CFL since 2009. He’s been an offensive coordinator in the CFL since 2012, but this will be his first NFL coaching job.
Bobby Johnson will be the assistant offensive line coach under Dave DeGuglielmo. He brings 22 years of coaching experience to Indianapolis, including seven years in the NFL. Johnson has spent the last three seasons coaching tight ends for the Raiders.
David Overstreet II will join the Colts’ coaching staff as a defensive quality control coach. He adds some youth to the staff, but not much experience after spending three years coaching at the collegiate level.
Frank Ross will work under Bubba Ventrone as the assistant special teams coach on Frank Reich’s coaching staff. Ross worked with player personnel for the Patriots for five years. He also worked for a year as a quarterbacks coach and was a special teams coordinator/running backs coach for another year at John Carroll University.
Gunnard Twyner will also join the staff as an offensive quality control assistant. He has been a coach for 14 years, with 8 of those years coaching in college. His most recent job was coaching wide receivers at Lafayette College in 2017. He worked with the Colts during a summer internship program in 2009 as an assistant quarterbacks coach when Frank Reich was the quarterbacks coach in Indianapolis.
