Rob Chudzinski is staying in Indianapolis.
The Colts announced Thursday that Chudzinski will remain the offensive coordinator going forward after assuming the reigns from a fired Pep Hamilton in early November.
Whereas reports surfaced that Hamilton was foisted upon Chuck Pagano after Bruce Arians left for Arizona in 2013, Chudzinski has a close relationship with the Colts head coach going back to their time together at the University of Miami in the late 1990s.
Considering the deck stacked against him, Chudzinski did well to close out the season with back-to-back victories.
"(We) make a change and go beat an undefeated Denver team with our starting quarterback," Pagano said this week, via the Indianapolis Star. "I think everybody saw a glimpse of what could be the vision we all had and where this team could go."
Now that Chudzinski's job is safe, the question is whether general manager Ryan Grigson overhauls the offense for the second offseason in a row.
Herremans is already gone, and the Gore-Johnson tandem is no lock to stick around for a second season in Indy.
