Meeks lands in Carolina

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

Ron Meeks resigned in Indianapolis when it became clear the Colts were going to go a different direction under Jim Caldwell.

Meeks has landed in Carolina, where he will take over for the departed Mike Trgovac as John Fox's defensive coordinator.

Trogovac turned down an extension and went to coach the defensive line in Green Bay.

Fox lauded Meeks after landing him for a staff that's had major defections.

"He's an outstanding teacher who has enjoyed great success as a coordinator in the league and brings a strong background of coaching championship defenses," Fox said.
