Colts introduce Caldwell as new coach
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS -- Jim Caldwell wants to build on Tony Dungy's success, not be a carbon copy of his former boss.
Caldwell, 53, was introduced today by the Colts as Dungy's replacement.
The move was not a surprise: The Colts announced their succession plan last year when Caldwell was elevated to associate head coach.
Caldwell has a four-year deal, but team owner Jim Irsay would not disclose the financial details other than to say it was competitive for a first-time NFL head coach.
Caldwell's only prior head coaching experience came at Wake Forest, where he went 26-63 in eight seasons.
