Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano is the new coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
The Colts announced that a press conference will be held at 3:00 PM tomorrow.
As Aaron Wilson points out, Pagano becomes the fourth former Ravens defensive coordinator to get a head coaching job, following Rex Ryan, Marvin Lewis and Mike Nolan.
Pagano arrives in Indianapolis after a 2-14 season in the midst of a quarterback controversy between a number one draft pick and the NFL’s biggest commercial advertising super star. He spent the 2011 season as the DC in Baltimore after working the previous three as the Ravens’ secondary coach.
So where do the Ravens go from here? Fans have pointed to Jack Del Rio who was let go by the Jaguars this season and of course worked as the linebackers coach for the Ravens during the 1999-2001 seasons.
I don’t see the Ravens reaching back to the Billick era to make a hire.
Gerry Sandusky says that if the Ravens decide to promote within, linebackers coach Dean Pees would be the favorite. Pees worked as a coordinator in New England.
