Indianapolis Colts Intend to Hold Onto Defensive Coordinator Bradley

The Indianapolis Colts have made major changes to their coaching staff this offseason, but they'll apparently limit their adjustments to the offensive side of the ball. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, defensive coordinator Gus Bradly will remain with the team.

The Colts shook up their staff by hiring Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen as their next head coach. The Colts finished 2022 a disappointing 4-12-1 due in large part to an offense that finished 30th in points scored and 32nd in giveaways.

Hanging onto Bradley is a mature, measured decision by the Colts. His defense wasn't the problem last year; the Colts finished 15th in yards allowed and ninth in yards allowed per drive. Cleaning house would have been typical after such a disappointing season, but there's plenty of reason to believe the Colts can be a competent defense once they're no longer sabotaged by their offense.
