INDIANAPOLIS – Saturday, ESPN reported that the Buffalo Bills have requested to speak with Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. The Bills are searching for a head coach following Doug Marrone’s resignation earlier this week. They are requesting to speak with Hamilton presumably about the vacant head coaching position.
Hamilton’s play calling was met with much frustration in 2013, his first season as an NFL offensive coordinator, but he has helped create, at times, the NFL’s most explosive offense in 2014. This season, the Colts rank third in total offense (406.6 YPG), first in passing yards (305.9 YPG) and sixth in points (28.6 PPG).
Quarterback Andrew Luck has also experienced the most statistically successful season of his young career, leading the NFL in total yards (5,034) and touchdowns (43).
In the event that the Colts lose Hamilton to Buffalo or any other team with a head coaching vacancy, it would be the Colts’ third offensive coordinator in four years. The Colts had present Arizona Cardinals head coach calling the offense in 2012.
