Chuck Pagano Wants To Coach Again

Chuck Pagano wants to get back in the game. Pagano says that he hopes to return to the NFL sidelines, one year after going 4-12 in his final year with the Colts.

Absolutely. I’m young. I’m 57 years old,” Pagano said (Twitter link via’s Ian Rapoport). “I’ve got a couple years left in me. I’ve got unfinished business. I’d love to have another opportunity, I just love being around the guys, being on grass and competing.”

Things didn’t go as planned for Pagano and the Colts in 2017 (particularly since they were without the services of Andrew Luck), but he did coach the team to three consecutive 11-5 campaigns from 2012-2014. In 2014, the Colts advanced to the AFC Championship game but were defeated by the eventual Super Bowl-champion Patriots.

All in all, Pagano owns a career 53-43 regular season record as an NFL head coach. Before the Luck-less ’17 season, Pagano was 49-31 over five years.

    A great guy and an excellent football coach. He fell victim to a terrible GM and nightmarish roster.

      What makes him awful? I blame his GM for not giving him anything to work with. When he had a decent roster, he made the playoffs

        poor in game decisions poor clock management. ran the most vanilla defense. fake punt vs the pats, need i say more?

          And Pagano’s team fell apart without Luck. Pats can stick anyone at QB and succeed. So there’s that too.
