Colts announce special teams coach leaving staff

Published:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis Colts special teams coordinator Marwan Maalouf will not be back on coach Chuck Pagano's staff next season.

The team says Maalouf and the Colts mutually agreed to part ways.

Maalouf followed Pagano from Baltimore to Indianapolis last year. Under Maalouf, punter Pat McAfee averaged 48.2 yards per punt, kicker Adam Vinatieri continued to make game-winning kicks and the punt and kickoff coverage units improved.

The Colts did not say what Maalouf plans to do next. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is expected to be a candidate for head coaching jobs in Chicago, Philadelphia and San Diego.
