Luck: Pep Hamilton's firing a 'gut punch'

Andrew Luck, whose association with Pep Hamilton dates back to the quarterback's days at Stanford, said Wednesday he was disappointed to see the offensive coordinator let go by the Colts.

Luck played under Hamilton with the Cardinal in 2011 and then again with the Colts from 2013 until the coach's dismissal on Tuesday. The Colts tabbed Rob Chudzinski take over as offensive coordinator for the rest of the season.

"It does feel like a gut punch, but again, we have to move on. We have," Luck said, per the team's official website. "We trust Coach Pagano's plan. We trust his vision. This locker room, we're on the same page moving forward. That's what we need to do to go out and win."

Luck, who leads the NFL with 12 interceptions, said his play this season isn't Hamilton's fault.

"I don't think the turnovers have anything to do with who the coordinator was," said Luck. "That falls on my shoulders and my shoulders only."
