Why the Colts fired Chuck Pagano as head coach after 6 seasons

Fantasy football, Week 17: Start or sit Colts WR TY Hilton vs. Texans? Why the Colts fired Chuck Pagano as head coach after 6 seasons

The team's 12 losses this season are their most since 2011, but the Colts haven't been a viable AFC contender in years.

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano reacts as he walks off the field after the game against the Houston Texans Sunday, Dec. 31, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The Chuck Pagano era has officially come to an end with the Indianapolis Colts after six seasons, the team announced on Sunday. Chuck's first season was one of the more inspirational stories in National Football League history as he courageously battled and overcame leukemia.

Matt Nagy has become a rising young coach during his tenure in Kansas City, and he's helped to turn around the Chiefs' offense by taking over the play-calling duties after they hit a midseason lull. As a result, his CHUCKSTRONG Foundation has raised millions for cancer research.

"We are thankful for Chuck's contributions to our franchise and community".

Rewari added he had friends that were failing school because of video game addiction. In 2016, a group of Oxford researchers wanted to know how addictive gaming can be.

And like Caldwell's final season, sabotaged by Peyton Manning's neck injury, Pagano's was marred by the absence of Andrew Luck all year following shoulder surgery. Pagano has been on the hot seat the last two years and acknowledged in early December he knew his "shelf life" wasn't long.

Pagano guided the Colts to a 56-46 overall record (including the postseason) after joining the team in 2012. After a trio of 11-5 seasons and two AFC South titles, the Colts had consecutive 8-8 seasons before the disappointing 2017 campaign.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is expected to interview with the New York Giants in the next week and reportedly has emerged as a favorite for the team's head-coaching opening.

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.
