In June, Pagano, 58, told reporters that he was hoping to return to the sidelines soon after being fired from Indianapolis following a 4-12 season in 2017.“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.”
He could get his wish with Green Bay, which has interviewed at least him and another former Colts head coach in Caldwell.
In his first three seasons in Indianapolis, Pagano led the Colts to back-to-back-to-back 11-5 seasons in Andrew Luck’s first years in the league. He then authored consecutive 8-8 campaigns before finishing 4-12 while Luck missed the entire season with an injury.
As Silverstein notes in his tweet, Pagano has significant ties to the Packers’ current staff, having worked with defensive coordinator Mike Pettine in Baltimore and having hired Green Bay’s current interim coach Joe Philbin with the Colts.
Pagano spent this season as a consultant for the NFL working with officials.
