Owner Jim Irsay almost made this move twice in recent years, and with the franchise struggling and the future of Andrew Luck in doubt and with rookie general manager Chris Ballard embarked on a long-term reshaping of the organization, more changes are coming in 2018, league sources indicated.

After the Indianapolis Colts' first losing season in six years, the team has fired head coach Chuck Pagano.

"Chuck Pagano provided Colts fans with many exciting wins and memories as head coach of the Colts", Irsay said in a statement.

What did Chuck Pagano accomplish in Indianapolis?

The Colts went went 4-12 this season and missed the playoffs for the third straight year. Pagano finished out his four-year deal in 2015, and owner Jim Irsay surprised everyone by bringing Pagano back and extending the contract of G.M. Ryan Grigson, amid rampant reports of dysfunction among them. "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".

However, Pagano's coaching tenure with the Colts may mostly be remembered for overcoming leukemia in 2012, starting the "Chuck-strong" mantra, and being an inspiration to many, many people on the positive side of things-including raising both research fundraising and overall awareness for combatting cancer.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck says shortly after going on IR he pursued treatment in the Netherlands for his shoulder.

Irsay fired general manager Ryan Grigson a year ago, but kept Pagano at the time. After a trio of 11-5 seasons and two AFC South titles, the Colts had consecutive 8-8 seasons before the disappointing 2017 campaign.

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.
