Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Colts actually hired psychologists to help improve the relationship between HC Chuck Pagano and GM Ryan Grigson.
Sources tell Schefter that one person compared the meetings to a couple going to marriage counseling that required the help of a third party to resolve their issues. According to Schefter, the issue between the two came to down to their communication problems.
Colts HC Jim Irsay alluded to as much during his press conference on Saturday to announce that they’ve fired Grigson.
“There was a lot of work going on within our organization to evaluate how interaction happens, how people communicate and how we get better,” Irsay said. “It wasn’t just sitting and staring outside at the Indiana winter. Through that process, I think both men grew and understood where they have to change.”
The Colts plan to keep Pagano in place and a report from this morning mentioned that executive Jimmy Raye III is the favorite to be hired as the team’s full-time GM.
