DACULA, Ga. - The Indianapolis Colts announced a coaching change Monday, naming former Hebron Christian Academy football coach and five-time Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
Saturday, 47, played for the Colts from 1999-2011 and was a two-time first-team AP All-Pro center, helping lead the Colts to the franchise's first Super Bowl on Feb. 4, 2007.
After two seasons as an assistant football coach for Hebron Christian Academy, Saturday took over as head coach at HCA, leading the Lions for three seasons from 2017-2019 and compiling a 21-16 record. During the 2019 season, he led HCA to its deepest playoff run in school history, defeating Mount Vernon and Mount de Sales Academy to reach the quarterfinals of the GHSA state playoffs.
Saturday has acted as a consultant for the Colts during the last few years, while also serving as an analyst for ESPN since 2013.
While Saturday will lead the Colts into a week 10 matchup at the Las Vegas Raiders this Sunday, the Lions are set to make another playoff run on Saturday, hosting Pickens County in the opening of the GHSA state playoffs with kickoff set for 6 p.m. at Burlingame Field.
