Colts complete head coach interview with Wink Martindale

The Indianapolis Colts completed their head coach interview with New York Giants defensive coordinator Wink Martindale, the team announced Sunday.

This was expected that Martindale would interview regardless of the outcome of the playoff game between the Giants and Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday night.

Martindale is the 13th candidate to interview for the vacancy since the end of the regular season, and there’s still one more on the docket with San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans.

After coaching in the college ranks from 1986-2003, Martindale made the leap to the NFL by being hired as the linebackers coach for the Oakland Raiders, a role he held for five seasons (2004-2008). He held the same role when he joined the Denver Broncos (2009) while also spending one season as their defensive coordinator (2010).

Martindale then joined the Baltimore Ravens as their linebackers coach for six seasons (2012-2017) before taking on the defensive coordinator role for four seasons (2018-2021).

After his stint in Baltimore was concluded, Martindale was hired by Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen to be the defensive coordinator of the Giants.

The head coaching search will be led by general manager Chris Ballard, but the decision ultimately resides with owner Jim Irsay.
