The Colts fired Pagano on Sunday in the wake of a 4-12 campaign — his worst mark in his seven years as Indy’s head coach.

Pagano posted a 53-43 record in Indianapolis. After posting three consecutive 11-5 marks that culminated in an appearance in the 2014 season’s AFC Championship Game, the Colts failed to make the playoffs in 2015 after an 8-8 season hampered by injuries to franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.
Indy missed the playoffs again in 2016 following another 8-8 season before Luck’s shoulder woes, which sidelined him for the entire 2017 campaign, made it virtually impossible for the Colts to be a contender in the resurgent AFC South.
