The Indianapolis Colts are putting the finishing touches on a deal to make Josh McDaniels their next head coach and he reportedly will be bringing New England Patriots special teams coach Joe Judge with him.
The Colts lost their own special teams coach in Tom McMahon, someone who was coveted in the organization as he left for the Denver Broncos in the same position.
It seems, though, that Judge will be following McDaniels to the Colts for the same position he held with the Patriots, per WEEI’s Kirk Minihane.
Judge entered the NFL in 2012 with the Patriots after serving three seasons under Alabama head coach Nick Saban as the Crimson Tide special teams assistant.
He held the same position with the Patriots (2012-14) before being promoted to the special teams coach in 2015, a role he has held since then.
The Colts haven’t yet announced McDaniels as head coach and while that is expected to happen soon, it seems his supporting cast is coming together.
