A San Diego Connection to the New Coach in Indianapolis
The Indianapolis Colts have named there new head coach as of yesterday. Indianapolis hired Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano. Chuck Pagano is the brother of current Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano, who has been a member of the San Diego coaching staff for the last 16 years, and was recently named defensive coordinator. Chuck Pagano makes the fourth Ravens defensive coordinator to be named a head coach in the last 10 years. That list contains Marvin Lewis, Mike Nolan, Rex Ryan, and now Pagano. It will be interesting to see if the hiring of Pagano is the end of the Payton Manning era in Indianapolis. If Manning is on the market, expect the NFL to go crazy over the coming months.
