Former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has agreed to take over the same duties with the Colts, the Indianapolis Star reported Sunday.

Arians declined comment when reached Saturday, but the paper cited a source with knowledge of the situation in reporting the hiring.

Arians, 59, was the Colts' quarterbacks coach for the first three years of Peyton Manning's NFL career beginning in 1998.

The Colts hired Chuck Pagano as head coach last week.

Arians coached for the Steelers for eight seasons, including the last five as Mike Tomlin's offensive coordinator. Although the Steelers announced he retired at the end of the season, Arians said he was not offered a new contract.

The paper also reported Clyde Christensen, the Colts' offensive coordinator the past two seasons, might remain return to duties as the wide receivers coach, a job he held from 2002-09.
