The 40-year-old Telesco spent the previous 15 seasons with the Colts, serving in various roles during his tenure. This past year, he assisted new general manager Ryan Grigson in developing a roster that went 11-5 and clinched a wild-card berth after finishing the previous year 2-14.

San Diego is also in the market for a new head coach after firing Norv Turner.
