The Indianapolis Colts promoted from within to fill their offensive coordinator opening, elevating Marcus Brady to replace Nick Sirianni, the team announced Monday.

Brady has been an assistant on head coach Frank Reich’s staff for three seasons, the past two as quarterbacks coach. Sirianni left to become the head coach in Philadelphia.

Marcus Brady becomes the fourth Black offensive coordinator in the league, joining new Lions offensive Anthony Lynn, the Buccaneers’ Byron Leftwich and the Chiefs’ Eric Bieniemy.
