Colts Part Ways With Head Coach Chuck Pagano

Intro: The Indianapolis Colts on Sunday announced that they have parted ways with head coach Chuck Pagano, who just wrapped up his sixth season at the helm of the franchise.


INDIANAPOLIS —The Indianapolis Colts have parted ways with Head Coach Chuck Pagano.

"Chuck Pagano provided Colts fans with many exciting wins and memories as head coach of the Colts," said Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay. "Throughout his tenure in Indianapolis, he impacted the lives of the players he coached, those who he worked with in the organization and Colts fans across the globe. Chuck's first season was one of the more inspirational stories in NFL history as he courageously battled and overcame leukemia. As a result, his CHUCKSTRONG Foundation has raised millions for cancer research. We are thankful for Chuck's contributions to our franchise and community and we wish him, Tina and the entire Pagano family nothing but the best moving forward."

Pagano guided the Colts to a 56-46 overall record (including the postseason) since joining the team in 2012. From 2012-14, he led the team to three consecutive 11-5 seasons and playoff appearances, including a trip to the AFC Championship at the end of the 2014 campaign. In 2015, Indianapolis increased its consecutive wins against AFC South opponents to 16, which set an NFL record. Pagano also coached 10 Pro Bowl players during his tenure with the Colts.

Following an inspirational 2012 season in which Pagano overcame his battle with leukemia and the Colts rallied to the playoffs, he formed The CHUCKSTRONG Foundation, which has raised more than $4.7 million for cancer research over the past five years.
