The coaching carosel around the NFL continues this week and perhaps the most intriguing situation is in Indianapolis where the Colts are looking to start a brand new era. One of the determining factors in Jeff Fisher choosing St. Louis over Miami was the presence of a franchise QB, a high draft pick and cap space. Indianapolis presents the same benefits as St. Louis, with the added bonus of being able to take the #1 QB in the draft.
If I'm part of the brain trust in Indianapolis then I'm taking a long look at Chud. ESPN are reporting that the Colts will be looking for an offensive mind at HC, and really I can't think of a better one to take over a team built around the pass than Chudzinski. He has proven success with a rookie QB, he'd have the TE he needs in Dallas Clark, he previously coached Reggie Wayne at Miami and he would have a cadre of other WRs to support a young QB.
It's not all roses in Indy, however. Whoever is the next HC will need to navigate the Peyton Manning mess (unless Rob Lowe is right), and deal with the fact that long term center Jeff Saturday may retire. This leaves the Colts with one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL and a new QB... it's not a perfect situation.
While this is all speculation I would definitely keep an eye out. For a maverick owner like Jim Irsay it wouldn't be outside his wheelhouse to take a gamble on Chud, and as a coach he'd be arriving in a pretty favorable situation. Time will tell, but I'm watching Indy to emerge as a team to grab our OC.
