Colts finally fire Pagano

I have no idea how it took this long. It’s similar to how the Cincinnati Bengals have held on to Marvin Lewis for so long, but Chuck Pagano’s reign of terror for the Indianapolis Colts was much shorter.

On Sunday, his tenure as the team’s head coach came to an end. The Colts have fired Pagano.

He’s 53-43 over six seasons as the head honcho and that includes a trip to the AFC Championship game. But, in his last three years he’s never been better than 8-8 and they finished 4-12 in 2017.

Yes, you can say that Andrew Luck was out all year, and he was. But, there just isn’t much you can point to in defense of keeping Pagano around with another year or contract.

The coaching carousel begins.
