Why the Colts fired Chuck Pagano as head coach after 6 seasons

Countdown To Kickoff: Texans - Colts

"Chuck Pagano provided Colts fans with many exciting wins and memories as head coach of the Colts", Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay said in a statement.

The Colts made an announcement after the game that they are parting ways with Pagano after six seasons. In his first three years at the helm in Indianapolis, he took his team to the postseason, advancing as far as the AFC Championship Game during the 2013 year, winning 11 games each season. "Throughout his tenure in Indianapolis, he impacted the lives of the players he coached, those who he worked with in the organization and Colts fans across the globe".

Pagano's first season as coach started with a hard personal fight.

The dramatic 2017 tailspin was complicated because the franchise went the entire season without quarterback Andrew Luck taking the field due to complications with his right shoulder.

Ballard will lead the search for Pagano's replacement in January.

The Indianapolis Colts are expected to fire head coach Chuck Pagano, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Pagano's early success coincided with Luck starting 54 consecutive games to begin his career. He missed most of that season, played through the injury in 2016, and was not able to play in any games this season. Ballard's former colleague with the Bears and Chiefs, Kansas City special teams coordinator Dave Toub, is also likely to be on the Colts' short list.

NFL Media's Mike Silver tweeted Saturday afternoon that Tom Cable, the' Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach, will receive "serious consideration" to replace Pagano.
