Chuck Pagano's revamped staff in Indianapolis is expanding.
In addition, Philbin will also serve as assistant head coach, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports.
Earlier this week, reports had Philbin heading to New York to work on new Giants coach Ben McAdoo's staff. Clearly, something changed.
Protecting franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, who sat out most of the season with a lacerated kidney after taking a beating behind a shoddy line, should be one of Pagano's focal points in 2016. The Colts allowed 37 sacks in 2015 and were 29th in the league in rushing. In hiring an experienced coach in that department, the Colts have taken a step in the right direction.
