Indianapolis Colts' Defensive Coordinator Ron Meeks Steps Down

NFLGridironGabSenior Analyst IJanuary 20, 2009


Jim Caldwell will have a new defensive coordinator in his first season with the club, as it was announced today that Ron Meeks has stepped down after seven seasons on the job. Meeks started coaching in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys in 1991 and has coached for the Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Falcons, Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams before joining the Colts in 2002.

There were rumors that Meeks was not going to be brought back by Caldwell, and he may have seen the writing on the wall and decided to simply step away instead of being fired. Look for Caldwell to make a move quickly and have someone already in mind for the position.
