After years of hedging and wavering between making coaching or front office changes, the Colts are preparing to conduct a coaching search this week, with sources close to Chuck Pagano saying the head coach expects to be relieved of his duties after the season. Pagano has led the Colts to a 3-12 record in 2017 and will coach the team in their season finale against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
The Indianapolis Colts are expected to fire head coach Chuck Pagano, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
But Pagano's Colts missed the playoffs in his final three seasons - the longest such stretch since prior to the Manning-Bill Polian regime - and he survived the firing last offseason of GM Ryan Grigson, with whom Pagano was supposedly contractually tied via matching extensions from owner Jim Irsay just one year earlier, and arrival of Ballard. Chuck's first season was one of the more inspirational stories in National Football League history as he courageously battled and overcame leukemia.
"We are thankful for Chuck's contributions to our franchise and community". After the Colts reached the AFC championship game in 2014, injuries derailed the team's postseason hopes over the last three years. After a trio of 11-5 seasons and two AFC South titles, the Colts had consecutive 8-8 seasons before the disappointing 2017 campaign.
Much of that is due quarterback Andrew Luck's injury to his throwing shoulder he suffered during the 2015 season.

Irsay fired general manager Ryan Grigson a year ago, but kept Pagano at the time.
One thing that likely doomed Pagano more than anything else was his combined 0-8 record against the Steelers and Patriots, losing by an average of more than 24 points to each perennial AFC contender.
While many have speculated the Giants will take a quarterback at No. 2 overall, newly hired general manager Dave Gettleman would not commit to that.
NFL Media's Mike Silver tweeted Saturday afternoon that Tom Cable, the' Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach, will receive "serious consideration" to replace Pagano.
