Joel A. Erickson confirms the news and adds that the Colts are also interviewing Washington DBs coach Chris Harris for their defensive coordinator job. 

The Colts are looking to replace DC Matt Eberflus, who has agreed to become the Bears’ new head coach.

Breer says that the Colts are looking at a number of outside candidates to bring in for this position. 

Cullen recently interviewed for the Ravens’ defensive coordinator vacancy, but they opted to go in a different direction. 

Cullen, 54, began his coaching career at UMass as their RBs coach in 1990. He later worked for several schools before working his way up to defensive coordinator.

The Lions hired Cullen as their DL coach in 2006. From there, he’s had stints with the Jaguars, Browns and Buccaneers before joining the Ravens as their DL coach in 2016.

The Jaguars hired Cullen to be their defensive coordinator last season.

Harris, 39, is a former sixth-round pick of the Bears back in 2005. He played nine seasons in the NFL before taking his first coaching job with the Bears as their defensive quality control coach in 2013.

After two years in Chicago, Harris was hired as the assistant defensive backs coach for the Chargers. Washington brought him to coach defensive backs for the 2020 season.
