What Is Going On with the Indianapolis Colts?

First, Tony Dungy retires...then Jim Caldwell takes over as HC. Followed by changes on the coaching staff including Tom Moore and Howard Mudd both resigning their positions. The Colts then name WRs Coach Clyde Christensen as OC. Then this morning while watching FirstTake on ESPN2, they mentioned that Tom Moore has returned as the Colts OC! I'm confused...What is going on with Indy?

Last I knew Moore and Mudd were being brought back as consultants.

Thats what I thought too! According to their website, the Colts don't have an OC listed. Clyde Christensen is an Asst. HC/WRs Coach.

Maybe the people that run their website are a little slow to update???
I bet the Colts worked out some sort of deal with Moore. It sounds like neither the Colts or Moore wanted this OC Change; but, changes in the NFL's coaches pension plans forced the issue...

"Shuffling staff members in May is unusual, but when NFL owners approved changes to the coaches' pension plan earlier this year, 67-year-old Mudd and 70-year-old Moore were almost forced into retiring. Otherwise, they would have lost some of their retirement benefits."

Basically, they found a loophole so they keep the coaches and they get the benefits by a simple title change.
We're beating them this year
losing moore is a huge drop off if hes not there, but im sure peyton probably has the whole offense ingrained in his head so theyll be fine

a lot of there older coordinattors were leaving out b/c of the new pension plans a lot of clubs were going with. They felt it was time to get out. so maybe they just want back in. Colts gonna suffer a bit and someobdy else gonna wint that division.

Offensive gurus Tom Moore and Howard Mudd are officially back with the Colts as consultants.
The NFL's ruling last week paved the way for Moore and Mudd to be on the field or in the booth on Sundays. "They'll play a serious role," said Colts owner Jim Irsay. That should dispell any notion that the Colts offense would take a hit this season due to a new coaching staff.
Their transitions are why many people are seeing the Texans as a "trendy" pick to win their division. I'm not 100% sure but the last two years or so I think the Texas have been around 8-8 or a little better but haven't made the playoffs cuz they are in the AFC.
doesnt Peyton Manning call his own plays
