As the interview requests begin pouring in, the Raiders are reaching out to a coach who not so long ago could have driven to their facility. They have requested an interview with Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator, Pep Hamilton. This according to sources close to ESPN's Josina Anderson.
Hamilton came to Indianapolis from Stanford University where he coached Andrew Luck. When Luck was drafted by the Colts in 2012, a year later Hamilton was hired to the Colts staff as his offensive coordinator.
He had some NFL experience prior to his time with the Colts. He was a QB coach for the New York Jets (2004), San Francisco 49ers (2006), and Chicago Bears (2007-09) before heading to Stanford as wide receivers coach for Jim Harbaugh's staff and then a QB coach and offensive coordinator on David Shaw's staff.
This season the Colts offense was ranked third in yards and sixth in points with Andrew Luck leading the league with 40 touchdown passes. This has made Hamilton an interesting name as teams look for a new head coach.
