BREAKING: Colts agree to contract extension with head coach Chuck Pagano

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has agreed to a contract extension, the team announced Monday night.

Pagano’s original contract expired at the end of this season and he reportedly had several meetings with the team to discuss his future.

Pagano said prior to the Colts’ Week 17 game against the Titans that he fully intended to remain the coach of the Colts.

“I will fight my a– off to be the coach here,” he told reporters Wednesday. “I’m worried about Tennessee right now. But do I want to be the coach here? Yes.”

ESPN’s Mike Wells reported that the relationship between Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson had fallen apart, and that the team could have to fire one or the other, if not both, at the end of the season. Grigson will be retained, Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo reports.

Pagano, 55, had coached the Colts to a 41–23 record in four seasons. He reportedly turned down a one-year contract extension in the off-season. The Colts finished a disappointing 8–8, with quarterback Andrew Luck battling injuries and missing nine games. Indianapolis went 11-5 in each of Pagano’s first three seasons as coach and made the AFC championship game last season, falling to the Patriots.
