 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Former Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Larry Coyer has been hired to run the Indianapolis Colts' defense.
The Colts on Friday also announced wide receivers coach Clyde Christensen will be assistant head coach and University of South Carolina assistant Ray Rychleski (rich-LESS-kee) will become special teams coordinator.
The moves come as the Colts fill out their staff under new coach Jim Caldwell, who took over after Tony Dungy retired last month.
Coyer spent the last two seasons at Tampa Bay and previously spent seven years with the Denver Broncos, the final four as defensive coordinator.
The Colts led the NFL in scoring defense in 2007 but dropped to seventh last season.
