Rob Chudzinski isn't leaving Indianapolis.

The Colts announced Tuesday morning they agreed to a new contract with Chudzinski and named him associate head coach.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that both the San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams wanted to talk to Chudzinski for their offensive coordinator openings.

"We're excited to keep Chud in our family," coach Chuck Pagano said. "He's been a critical part of our operation and we're looking forward to sharing even more success in the future."

Chudzinski joined the Colts in 2014 as special assistant to the head coach. Most notably during his 11-year NFL coaching career, Chudzinski was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns in 2013 after serving two previous stints with the team in 2004 and from 2007-08.

Keeping both offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton and Chudzinski around quarterback Andrew Luck should help the continuity of an offense that is looking to add playmakers beyond T.Y. Hilton.
