One candidate for the Indianapolis Colts head coach position appears to have a powerful backer in his corner.

The Colts have set up a second interview with Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, according to reports. Callahan’s candidacy is noteworthy for one reason: according to Albert Breer of The MMQB, he has an advocate in Colts legend Peyton Manning.

Callahan got his start in coaching as an offensive assistant with the Denver Broncos from 2010 to 2015, a period of time that overlapped with Manning’s four seasons with the team. He became Cincinnati’s offensive coordinator in 2019, and has been credited for the work he has done with Joe Burrow.

Colts owner Jim Irsay appears to be fixated on another Colts legend as one of his preferred candidates for the vacancy. Perhaps a Manning endorsement could be enough to help sway him in another direction.
