The Colts officially made Bruce Arians their new offensive coordinator on Tuesday, but the old one doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere.

Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports that Clyde Christensen will remain with the Colts as quarterbacks coach in 2012. Per La Canfora, the Colts considered moving in another direction and also considered moving Christensen to work with wide receivers, which he did for three years before becoming the coordinator, but settled on moving him to the quarterback spot.

If the Colts move on from Peyton Manning and select Andrew Luck, there will be some interesting symmetry between the two men. Manning’s first quarterbacks coach in Indy was Arians and his last offensive coordinator was Christensen.
