There will be at least two significant changes in Indianapolis under Dungy's successor, Jim Caldwell.</p> <p>So while we wait on official word of a new defensive coordinator and special teams coach, let's examine the rest of the staff. I'd like to hear from you on this, Colts fans:</p> <p>Who's the team's best assistant coach?</p> <p>I know two stalwarts of the offensive staff are the prime candidates here.</p> <p>Offensive coordinator Tom Moore is an innovator who runs a system through <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1428" target="_new">Peyton Manning</a> the likes of which we don't see anywhere else. Manning's ability to put the offense in the best play based on what he sees a defense doing all starts with Moore.</p> <p>Offensive line coach Howard Mudd is going to be a popular choice, and he's an excellent coach who's not always been given premium talent. His line, however, had not always done its best work in the postseason.</p> <p>Does defensive line coach John Teerlinck deserve a mention too, considering just how good <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3539" target="_new">Dwight Freeney</a> and <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4596" target="_new">Robert Mathis</a> have been and how he's hardly had top-level interior talent?</p> <p>Let me hear from you on this with comments here or notes to the mailbag. We'll circle back to the topic later in the week and name a "winner."</p>
