Chuck Pagano reportedly told he’ll be back for 2017
INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Chuck Pagano has reportedly "received assurance" that he will be back as head coach next year.
Alex Marvez of SportingNews.com tweeted the report Friday morning.
Haha. Nothing on Grigson but I would be more surprised if he's fired than if he's retained. Jim Irsay likes him a lot & wants him to succeed https://t.co/iC8u1ddgL4— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) January 6, 2017
Eyewitness Sports Director Dave Calabro was told later that morning that the Colts' position had not changed since Monday: Pagano is under contract to return next season and the team won't have a statement unless that changes.
I trust @alexmarvez and his reporting, always have. For now no confirmation or denial from Colts. Still working on it.— Bob Kravitz (@bkravitz) January 6, 2017
