Colts Add Robert Mathis to Coaching Staff

The Colts website says Mathis will serve as the team's "pass rush consultant", specializing in player development.

INDIANAPOLIS  – After years on the field, Robert Mathis is taking his place on the sidelines.

Mathis has been given the title of "pass rush consultant/player development". His role was announced Monday, on the heels of Sunday's 16-13 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals. 

Mathis, the franchise's all-time sacks leader, retired at the end of last season. He spent all 14 years of his career in Indianapolis.

In a feature posted to the team website, Mathis said he's excited about his role:

"This is the only place that I know, the only place that took a chance on me, so I feel this is my way of giving back. "I love this organization. I feel like I’m a loyal guy. I feel at home here. It gives my family the best opportunity for success being here."
