Goodwin to coach Colts' offensive line; two other coaches let go

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts have hired Harold Goodwin as their new offensive line coach and have fired two more coaches.

The moves came Tuesday, less than a week after Chuck Pagano was hired as the Colts' new head coach.

Indy also fired tight ends coach Ricky Thomas and assistant offensive line coach Ron Prince, the latest part of an offseason overhaul. The team has already fired vice chairman Bill Polian, general manager Chris Polian, coach Jim Caldwell and most of Caldwell's staff.

Goodwin was Pittsburgh's offensive assistant since 2007 and assisted with game preparation, video analysis and scouting opponents.

The team also confirmed that Bruce Arians will take over as offensive coordinator. Arians was Indy's quarterbacks coach during Peyton Manning's first three NFL seasons and was Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator the last five seasons.
