The Colts announced today that they hired Rob Chudzinski as special assistant to the head coach.
“Rob and I have a long professional relationship and his résumé speaks for itself,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said in a statement. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and will be a tremendous help to our entire team moving forward. Needless to say, we’re excited to have ‘Chud’ joining our family.”
We're not sure what a 'special assistant' does, but it's fair to say that Chudzinski will have plenty of input on the offensive side of the ball. Known to run a TE-friendly offense, the hire is likely good for Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, but if both players are healthy they'll likely cap each other's upside.
