Ravens reportedly trying to lure back Chuck Pagano
Chuck Pagano may be out of a head coaching job in the NFL, but that does not mean he won’t have options.
The Baltimore Ravens reportedly are trying to lure him back as defensive coordinator, according to The Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec and Mike Preston.
The Ravens have spoken to former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, trying to lure him back to Baltimore to be the defensive coordinator, per colleague @MikePrestonSun. Ravens have other options, but he appears to be their focus at this point.

Preston says the Ravens are also interested in Vic Fangio.
The Ravens are in the market for a new defensive coordinator after Dean Pees retired.
Pagano served as the team’s defensive backs coach from 2008-2010 before becoming defensive coordinator in 2011. He then took the Colts head coaching job the following year.
Although Baltimore failed to make the playoffs this season, they were sixth in the league in points allowed per game and would be attractive to a defensive coach thanks to their talent.
