Wayne played his entire career with the Colts from 2001 to 2014. He was a six-time Pro Bowler and reached the 1,000 yard mark eight times during that span. He does not have any formal coaching experience, though he did spend time with the Colts as a volunteer receivers coach in the past.
Wayne would seem to have the necessary work ethic to succeed in the role based on his commitment to the team. He would definitely be a popular hire if this does come to pass.
