In the midst of a disastrous winless season, the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday fired defensive coordinator Larry Coyer.
The Colts are 0-11 and have surrendered a league-high 327 points.
“The move was made to improve communication and production,” Colts coach Jim Caldwell said in a statement released by the team. “We feel this is the most effective and realistic way to move forward and win games this season. We appreciate all of the effort and hard work Larry Coyer put forth in his three years with the Colts.”
Longtime linebackers coach Mike Murphy was elevated to take over Coyer's position.
Indianapolis will face the New England Patriots on Sunday.
