Hamilton was with the Colts as their offensive coordinator, but was fired by the team on November 3rd of last year with the team struggling.
Wilson comes to the team from Minnesota, where he was the club’s running back coach.
As for Horton, the hiring ends a few days of back and forth as to if he was even available or not to be hired. It was reported Sunday he was ‘disrespected’ by the Titans when he talked with them about the head coaching job, but then later on he came out and disputed the report.
