Reports that the Colts had decided to move on without head coach Chuck Pagano on Friday were met with a quick response from the team saying that they hadn’t made any decisions regarding the position.
It appears the end of the regular season on Sunday and a meeting with Pagano on Monday hasn’t gotten them to that point. According to multiple reporters in Indianapolis, the Colts announced on Monday afternoon that the team would have no announcement or press conference regarding Pagano’s status before the day is out.
Pagano, who turned down a one-year contract extension before the season, said last week that he planned to “fight my ass off” to remain the Colts’ coach.
The lack of a decision about the future is also true for General Manager Ryan Grigson, whose personnel moves and reportedly poor relationship with Pagano have been seen as part of what wrong for the Colts this season. His position in the organization has been portrayed as stronger than Pagano’s at points this season, but the delay in making a move makes it hard to read exactly what the Colts are going to do this week.
