Indianapolis hires new special teams coordinator

The Indianapolis Colts have hired Tom McMahon as their new

special teams coordinator.

McMahon replaces Marwan Maalouf, who left after one season with

what the team described Thursday as a mutual agreement.

McMahon was the special teams coach in Kansas City last season.

He had the same job with St. Louis from 2009-11 and was the

assistant special teams coach with Atlanta in 2007 and 2008.

Previously, McMahon had coached exclusively in the high school

and college ranks, starting his career as the secondary coach at

Carroll College in 1992. He was a graduate assistant and coached

linebackers, defensive line and special teams at Utah State from

1995-2005 before spending one season as Louisville’s outside

linebackers coach and special teams coordinator.
