Colts name Reggie Wayne as WRs coach

The named Reggie Wayne as the team’s wide receivers coach on Monday.

Wayne, 43, certainly knows a thing or two about the position. The six-time Pro Bowl selection ranks second only to Pro Football Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison on the franchise list in catches (1,070), receiving yards (14,345) and receiving touchdowns (82).

Wayne played in 211 career games (197 starts) with the Colts, who inducted him into their Ring of Honor in 2018.

“He’s a winner,” Colts coach Frank Reich said of Wayne, who is the team’s all-time postseason leader in receptions (93), receiving yards (1,254) and receiving touchdowns (nine). “He’s a really smart player, a really motivated guy, very structured in how he works and what he does. And very analytical and intellectual in how he approaches the receiver position.

“So we’ve been talking about this for four years. The timing has not been right but now the time is right. So really excited for what he’s going to bring to the room and to the team.”

Wayne replaces Mike Groh, who served as the team’s wide receiver coach from 2020-21 before accepting an offer for the same position with the New York Giants.

Also on Monday, the Colts announced the hiring of six other coaches: Offensive quality control coach Brian Bratton, assistant linebackers coach Cato June, defensive backs coach Ron Milus, assistant defensive backs coach Mike Mitchell, defensive line coach Nate Ollie and linebackers coach Richard Smith.
