Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday announced Wednesday pass game specialist/assistant quarterbacks coach Parks Frazier will be the team's offensive playcaller for the remainder of the 2022 season.

Saturday said he decided on Frazier in part because he was trying to keep consistency in roles for other assistant coaches.

"We have a number of really good coaches on the staff," Saturday said. "I'm excited to work with each and every one of them. I made the decision based on where the coaches were and trying to move as few pieces and parts as I could. And with Parks being the floater, he's been here the longest — he's been here since 2018. He knows the offense extremely well.

"We've had two guys on staff who have called plays, being (running backs coach) Scottie Montgomery and (quarterbacks coach) Scott Milanovich, so both of those guys, they're going to be heavily involved and we're all going to be heavily involved and trying to help Parks put together the best game plan and we got full confidence he's gonna do the right thing and put us in the right place."

Frazier joined the Colts coaching staff in 2018 as an assistant to head coach Frank Reich, and was promoted to offensive quality control in 2020, assistant quarterbacks coach in 2021 and pass game specialist/assistant quarterbacks in 2022.

Frazier has worked extensively with quarterback Sam Ehlinger over the last two years, too.

"Parks has been amazing since I got here," Ehlinger said Wednesday. "He's kind of been, when I was drafted, he was the guy that taught me the offense. We've been very close since then and I'm really fired up for his opportunity."

The Corinth, Miss. native played quarterback at Northeast Mississippi Community College and Murray State and began his coaching career as a defensive quality control assistant with Samford and Middle Tennessee State in 2015. He served as a graduate assistant working with quarterbacks at Arkansas State from 2016-2017 before being hired by the Colts.
