INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - New Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton is eager to get started.
Just minutes after Indianapolis made the hiring official Saturday, Hamilton told reporters he was eager to reunite with three of his former pupils at Stanford - quarterback Andrew Luck, tight end Coby Fleener and receiver Griff Whalen.
All three have some idea of what kind of offense Hamilton will use in the NFL. Hamilton replaces Bruce Arians, who was hired as Arizona's head coach Thursday.
Fleener told reporters during a conference call he doesn't expect the offense to be an exact replica of what Hamilton used at Stanford.
Different players and different hash marks on the field are just two things that could create changes. But Fleener does believe the three ex-Stanford players' knowledge of the offense may make the transition easier.
