Pep Hamilton

Another coach who has a great track record with quarterbacks is Pep Hamilton, who was the offensive coordinator from 2013 to 2015 with the Indianapolis Colts. He helped Andrew Luck to develop into one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, where he would make the Pro Bowl in two of those three years, including throwing 40 touchdowns in 2014.

He most recently has had success helping rookie quarterbacks in Los Angeles with Justin Herbert in 2020 and then this past year with Davis Mills, as quarterback coach in both spots. While the Texans struggled Davis Mills played surprisingly well. The former third-round pick finished the year with 2,664 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions with a case to be made that he was the second-best rookie quarterback behind only Mac Jones.

If the focus is to put coaches around to support and elevate Josh Allen, Pep Hamilton is another coach with a great track record and would be a good fit as offensive coordinator.
