Hamilton, 38, coached Luck during his last two seasons at Stanford. Colts tight end Coby Fleener also played under Hamilton's direction.
“You're getting a guy first and foremost who knows how to train quarterbacks,” Shaw told the Star. “You're getting a guy who knows how to attack defenses and you're getting a guy who is passionate about the game of football.”
Hamilton worked in the NFL as quarterbacks or receivers coach for the Jets, 49ers and Bears before going to Stanford. He had interviewed for the University of Oregon head coaching job before the Colts made their offer.
