INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts new offensive coordinator won't need directions to the team's West 56th Street headquarters. Marcus Brady has been working there for the last three years.

Brady became the the Colts offensive coordinator Monday, less than a week after former coordinator Nick Sirianni took the head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Brady has been with the team the last three years, the last two as quarterbacks coach. In 2020, Brady was part of an Indianapolis offense that ranked in the top-10 in the NFL in points per game (28.2, ninth), rushes of 10-plus yards (64, sixth) and first downs per game (22.8, tied-10th). He worked with quarterback Philip Rivers, who completed 369-of-543 passes for 4,169 yards with 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for a 97.0 passer rating.

Prior to the Colts, Brady spent 16 years in the Canadian Football League as a coach (2009-2017) and player (2002-08). He won three Grey Cups (2009, 2010 and 2017) during his CFL career. Brady served as the offensive coordinator for the Toronto Argonauts for five seasons (2013-17) and was the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for the Montreal Alouettes for one season (2012).
