According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has emerged as a candidate for the Vanderbilt Commodores head coaching position which was recently vacated by the departure of James Franklin to the Penn State Nittany Lions after three seasons at the helm.


The Colts were just bounced from their playoff run by the New England Patriots over the weekend, so Hamilton is free to explore the opportunity.

Hamilton spent significant time in the National Football League ranks before landing in college with the Stanford Cardinal in 2010 as the wide receivers coach. The next season, he was promoted to offensive coordinator under David Shaw, a position he spent two seasons in.

This past season was his only in the NFL, but it was for a reason as he worked with his former Cardinal QB Andrew Luck as the Colts made their playoff charge.
