Strausser joined the Colts coaching staff during the 2019 offseason as the offensive line coach and held the role for four seasons since the team parted ways with former offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo.
The Colts offensive line allowed the second-most sacks (60) in the NFL during the 2022 season.
The Colts are currently building out their coaching staff under new head coach Shane Steichen, and there is one leading candidate for the role.
Regardless, Strausser will be staying in the division as the offensive line coach for the Texans new head coach in DeMeco Ryans.
