Chuck Pagano reportedly has ‘doubts’ he will be with Colts in 2016
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano is off to an 0-2 start in what is essentially a make or break season for his job status, and he seems to be very aware of his current situation.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Pagano has told people close to him that he has “doubts” about whether he will still be coaching in Indy in 2016.
“So often we talk about coaches on the hot seat, the reality is, Pagano put himself on the hot seat,” Rapoport said on NFL Network Sunday morning. “He declined a one-year contract extension from the Colts, choosing to bet on himself and hopefully cash in at the end of the year. But now they have started 0-2 and, as I said, there are some doubts from him that he will return.”
There have been multiple reports indicating that Pagano and Colts general manager Ryan Grigson are not getting along. Pagano contributed to the speculation that he is unhappy with his current situation when he went off in his press conference after an embarrassing Week 2 loss to the New York Jets.
The Colts need to turn things around, and fast. Andrew Luck has looked completely lost in the first two games of the season, albeit against very tough defenses. He and his teammates will have a chance to right the ship against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
