    Default Colts Reportedly hire Chuck Pagano as Head Coach

    Multiple reports are surfacing that the Colts have picked Chuck Pagano as their new Head Coach.

    The Indianapolis Colts coaching search appears to have settled on Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano. According to Pro Football Talk, the Colts have hired Pagano as their new head coach.

    Pagano is coming off his first season as the Ravens defensive coordinator and the stats show he clearly did well as the Ravens finished third in both points and yards allowed.

    Pagano first jumped from the college ranks to the NFL when he took a job with the Cleveland Browns in 2001 coaching the secondary. He held the same position in Oakland. He spent one season as North Carolina's defensive coordinator before returning to the NFL as the Ravens secondary coach.

    Pagano was among a number of candidates who reportedly interviewed with the Colts including Jim Tressel, Jerry Gray and Brad Childress

    Kravitz tweeted he is currently trying to confirm this report.

    If this is true, count me as pleased. This marks a fundamental change in the play-style of our prolifically weak defense.

    Ya I agree.. I was happy to hear he was coming for an interview.. Very good to see it seems we have picked a defensive guy over an offensive guy.

    Hopefully he'll be able to turn the defense around. It'll probably take a while, as the Colts will need to bring in the proper personnel.

    And hopefully he and Grigson will give Luck a better defense than Manning ever had.

    Absolutely. And not only that, but we may--albeit 5 years down the line with good drafting--shake the "soft" image we seem to have with so many people. I would love to have NFL teams respect the Colts D in the same way that I would have to assume NBA teams are starting to respect that of the Pacers.

    I am very happy the Colts hiring Pagano.

    Obviously when you are hiring a guy who hasn't been a head coach before you really don't know exactly what you are getting. From what I do know I do like Pagano...a lot.

    Great hire to me personally. We needed to get a tough defensive minded coach. Now just getting the right personnel for his strategy. I would think that we already have a lot of players that can adjust to his defense. Hopefully they can turn that defense around. We have talent there, but better used in something other than the tampa 2 defense. I wonder how he and Peyton will get along, unless they already have determined him to be gone.

    It will be interesting to see if/how soon we implement a 3-4 defense. If Mathis re-signs, I'd love to see him play some LB/DE standing up at the line of scrimmage - like a Terell Suggs.

    Like the apparent shift to an aggressive defensive philosophy. Very interested to see how the rest of the paradigm shift plays out vis a vis coaching staff, draft, other avenues for player acquisition, and, of course, the Manning decision.

    If he starts dying his hair jet black and leaving the sideburns white, then we might have a real problem. At least his name isn't Jim

    ...plus he seems to really believe in defense...

    Well I definately like this move I guess after the possibility of Tressel or Childress at the helm anyone seems better in comparison.

    The Colts will hold a 3 pm press conference to introduce Chuck Pagano.

    I can't wait to hear what he has to say. I know a lot might be thinking the Colts will switch to the 3-4 but I will be surprised (not that I wouldn't might mind see them switch to that) because the way Grigson talked he wanted to try and "salvage" things if he can. It will be interesting.

    I'd be pretty damned surprised if he doesn't employ a 3-4 defense.

    Won't it take more than one off season to get the 3 linemen needed though? In theory they could but I just thought it might be difficult since the Colts will be limited on money and wont be able to draft them all.

    I'm sure it will be difficult, but that's his style. He can and will make it work I'm guessing.

    Honestly now is a PERFECT time to employ 3-4 defense... Mathis is a FA... we could trade Freeney for a big DT or other skilled player.. Angerer, Brackett, Wheeler, Sims, Connor all good choices to choose from at LB.

    Or you play Freeney/Mathis as LBs....
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
