    Ravens DC Chuck Pagano leaves to become Colts HC

    this should hurt the Ravens a little...


    Colts Hire Chuck Pagano As Next Head Coach

    By Joel Thorman - NFL Editor



    The Colts interviewed a number of candidates but have reportedly decided to hire Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano as their next head coach.

    Jan 25, 2012 - The Indianapolis Colts coaching search appears to have settled on Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano. According to Pro Football Talk, the Colts have hired Pagano as their new head coach.

    Pagano is coming off his first season as the Ravens defensive coordinator and the stats show he clearly did well as the Ravens finished third in both points and yards allowed.

    Pagano first jumped from the college ranks to the NFL when he took a job with the Cleveland Browns in 2001 coaching the secondary. He held the same position in Oakland. He spent one season as North Carolina's defensive coordinator before returning to the NFL as the Ravens secondary coach.

    Pagano was among a number of candidates who reportedly interviewed with the Colts including Jim Tressel, Jerry Gray and Brad Childress.

    They didn't want Arians ? After all, Arians is the reason for Peytons success.

    So Jim Tressel is out for the head coach of the colts. How about QB coach for the steelers after Randy gets the OC?

    Makes you wonder if LUCK will be their guy since they hired a DEFENSIVE guy....you'd think they'd want an OFFENSIVE guy to develop the youngster.

    Luck ran a power run pro style offense at Stanford. I bet the Colts want to get away from the pass happy O they had with Peyton.
    1) Chidobe Awuzie - CB, Colorado.
    2) Tim Williams - LB, Bama.
    3) Josh Jones S, NCState.
    3 Comp) Isaiah Ford, WR - VTech.
    4) Kareem Hunt - RB, Toledo.
    5) Josh Dobbs - QB, Tenn.
    6) Greg Pike - G/OT, Georgia.
    7) Isaac Rochell - DL, ND.

    Browsing the Rats boards after this news broke. They were hoping this off-season that Cam Cameron would get the ax. Instead their beloved DC is gone and per one of their inside reporters Cam will be back. Talk about rubbing salt into their wounds right after that brutal loss. Hahaha.

    The guy they're hearing will replace him is Dean Pees. Don't know anything about him, but he's an in-house guy and they don't seem that thrilled with it. I guess they have a few defensive UFAs that they think might follow him as well. No big names, but decent backups.

    Maybe they'll bring Fat Rex back once the Jets tire of his shenanigans...

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I doubt that this is a factor. I would think that a QB coach and the OC would have a much stronger hand in the development of a QB.

    Remember, the Ravens brought in an offensive mind in Brian Billick back in the day, and they won with dominant defense and pedestrian offense. Go figure.
