INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says that Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has accepted the same position with the Indianapolis Colts, where he will be reunited with quarterback Andrew Luck.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Friday because the deal has not yet officially been announced by the Colts. Team owner Jim Irsay tweeted that the Colts' offense ``could have some pep to it this fall.''
Hamilton will see familiar faces in Luck, last year's No. 1 overall pick out of Stanford, and tight end Coby Fleener. Luck set NFL rookie records for attempts and yards passing and fell just short of the league's rookie marks for completions and touchdown passes. He tied the league's single-season record for most winning drives in the fourth quarter (seven) and produced a league-high nine wins in one-possession games.
Hamilton will replace Bruce Arians, who was hired this week as the new head coach for Arizona.
