Ron Meeks has resigned as defensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts, the club announced Tuesday.
The Colts led the NFL in scoring defense in 2007 but dropped to seventh last season and were eliminated from the AFC playoffs in the wild-card round by San Diego.
The 54-year-old Meeks began his NFL coaching career with Dallas in 1991 as a defensive assistant. He later coached with Cincinnati, Atlanta, Washington and the Rams.
