Colts officially part ways with head coach Chuck Pagano

The Indianapolis Colts are expected to fire head coach Chuck Pagano, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The team later confirmed the move.

Chuck Pagano's "last rodeo" with the Indianapolis Colts is complete.

But Pagano's Colts missed the playoffs in his final three seasons - the longest such stretch since prior to the Manning-Bill Polian regime - and he survived the firing last offseason of GM Ryan Grigson, with whom Pagano was supposedly contractually tied via matching extensions from owner Jim Irsay just one year earlier, and arrival of Ballard.

In the first three seasons of Pagano's rein, the Colts earned three consecutive postseason berths.

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

Instagram brings recommended posts feature to their app
The Facebook-owned company has given a two-liner on how it determines which posts appear in the " Recommended for You " section. I don't even see 75% of the people I'm following posts but now @ Instagram is sticking " recommended posts " in my feed.

Following an inspirational 2012 season in which Pagano overcame his battle with leukemia and the Colts rallied to the playoffs, he formed The CHUCKSTRONG Foundation, which has raised more than $4.7 million for cancer research over the past five years. As a result, his CHUCKSTRONG Foundation has raised millions for cancer research.

But the team failed to compile a winning record the past three seasons as they were hampered by multiple injuries to quarterback Andrew Luck.

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

Chris Ballard did his best to work with Pagano - who was lucky to keep his job after last season - but it's no surprise that first-year general manager would want an opportunity to pick his own coach. Although his tenure in Denver did not end well, he has been one of the league's most successful offensive coordinators during two different stints with the Patriots. Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy and Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable have been reported to be possible replacements for Pagano.
