Colts To Run A Variation Of The West Coast Offense In 2013
New Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton ran the West Coast offense at Stanford, which revolves around a shorter, more efficient passing game as well as a power running attack and it appears the Colts offense will be a similar according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
“It’ll be a variation of the West Coast (with) West Coast principles,’’ Hamilton said. “The short, efficient passing game, a high completion rate.
“But I enjoy watching our guys just come off the ball, the guys up front, and trying to knock the opponent back. I’m a big believer of the power-running game and . . . I think that ultimately opens up your passing game, the play-action passes.’’
Hamilton, 38, said it’s premature to elaborate on how different the playbook will be in terms of scheme and terminology.
“I’ve got to take a look at what they were able to do this past season,’’ he said. “They were very successful as an offensive unit and as a football team overall.’’
