Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has expressed his delight at the recent appointment of Rob Chudzinski, reports ESPN.

The 45-year-old former Cleveland Browns head coach was hired as a special assistant at the Lucas Oil Stadium, and will call upon his 20 years of coaching experience in a bid to aid old friend Pagano for the 2014 season onwards.

Chudzinski and Pagano have plenty of history together, starting from their spell on the coaching team at the University of Miami in 1995.

They were reunited at the Browns in 2004, and will now be working alongside each other for a third time in Indiana.

"Rob and I have a long professional relationship and his résumé speaks for itself," said Pagano. "He brings a wealth of knowledge and will be a tremendous help to our entire team moving forward.

"Needless to say, we're excited to have 'Chud' joining our family."

Chudzinski also enjoyed two seasons as offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers, during which time he helped quarterback Cam Newton become the first rookie to throw for 4,000 yards.

Under his guidance, the Panthers also set team records for total yards (6,237) and first downs (345) in 2011.

It's not yet clear exactly what Chudzinski's role will be with the Colts, but he has the attributes to help in a number of different areas, from practice to game planning.
