"I was surprised," Huey said. "I think people can look at what I've done here. I feel like I've contributed and the people I've coached and been responsible for have produced."
The Colts' ground game has struggled the past three seasons, ranking 29th (92.7 yards per game) in 2010, partly because of injuries at running back and on the offensive line. However, Huey also coached four different backs to 1,000-yard seasons, including NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk, Edgerrin James, Dominic Rhodes and Joseph Addai.
