 The Colts decided to fire offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, and replace him with Rob Chudzinski. The announcement was made Tuesday by the team.

After the team’s loss against Carolina, coach Chuck Pagano said in a statement, “Through the first eight weeks of the season, we have felt our offense hasn’t performed at the consistent level that we need.”

“Because of this, we’ve decided to go in a different direction and relieve Pep Hamilton of his duties as offensive coordinator. As head coach of this team, it’s my responsibility to make sure I’m doing everything we can to put us in the best position to succeed. We thank Pep for his service to the team and wish him all the best.”

The Colts made big changes the past offseason, the team incorporated Andre Johnson and Fran Gore through free agency, and selected Phillip Dorsett in the first round of this year’s draft.  They joined receivers T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief and tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener to support QB Andrew Luck.

After all this, the team struggled offensively all season. At this moment the Colts are 16th in the league in yards per game and 20th in points a game, and Luck leads the NFL in turnovers with 13.

Hamilton started with the Colts in 2013, he worked as Andrew Luck’s offensive coordinator at Stanford. Chudzinski arrived in February 2014, after he was forced to leave the Cleveland Browns. Chudzinski worked with Pagano at the University of Miami from 1995 to 2000 and back in 2004 with the Browns.
