Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said Saturday night that former coaches Tom Moore and Howard Mudd will begin their roles as team consultants on Aug. 1, according to the Indianapolis Star.

While Moore, the former offensive coordinator, and Mudd, the former offensive line coach, won't work under those titles any more, Irsay said they will perform similar duties to those they'd done since 1998.

"They're coming back," Irsay said to the Star. "They're coming back as consultants and they're going to be involved big time. Jim Caldwell will determine what that will be."

The two retired last month because of concerns with changes to the NFL's pension program.
