The Indianapolis Colts have a defensive coach opening for their head coach.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Colts have requested permission to interview New York Giants defensive coordinator Vink Martindale.
Martindale’s defense did a great job on Vikings star wide receiver Justin Jefferson. Jefferson only had 47 yards on seven receptions.
The Giants’ defense held Kirk Cousins to less than 300 yards through the air.
The NFL community was quick to respond to this report.
“Well, Ballard sure is interviewing a lot of candidates. Let’s see if Irsay lets him hire any of them,” read one tweet.
“Ballard will have 12-15 candidates at the end of this. All or better of them are qualified and well suited for the HC position in Indy. It would be malpractice if Irsay tries to sell the fan base that Saturday is better than everyone else them,” read another tweet.
Do you think Martindale would be a good fit for the Colts?
