INDIANAPOLIS – The on-going shuffling of Frank Reich’s coaching staff includes the addition of Kevin Mawae.
Mawae is joining the Indianapolis Colts staff as assistant offensive line coach, according to a source with knowledge of the decision. Stephen Holder of The Athletic was first to report the action.
Mawae brings a deep NFL resume and rare pedigree to the Colts. He was a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019 following a 16-year career that included 241 games, six All-Pro selections and eight Pro Bowls. He was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 2000s.
A second-round pick of Seattle in 1994, Mawae spent his first two seasons at right guard before switching to center in ’96. He spent time with the Seahawks (1994-97), New York Jets (1998-2005) and Tennessee Titans (2006-09), and blocked for a 1,000-yard rusher in 13 of his 16 seasons.
Mawae has been working as an offensive analyst on Herm Edwards’ staff at Arizona State.
