Jason La Canfora, citing league sources, reports that Colts owner Jim Irsay has grown “increasingly frustrated” with the team’s start to the 2015 season, and is considering in-season staff changes should they not get things turned around soon.
Another concern for Irsay is the fact that franchise quarterback Andrew Luck appears to have regressed this season, even though the Colts were expected to content for an AFC Championship and potentially a Super Bowl.
Colts HC Chuck Pagano and GM Ryan Grigson’s time with the team is believed to be in doubt, which means major changes could be coming to Indianapolis in 2016.
In fact, La Canfora reports that it’s “virtually certain” Pagano won’t return to the Colts next year. Interestingly enough, La Canfora mentions that the opening at the University of Miami would hold “considerable interest” to Pagano.
Colts OC Pep Hamilton reportedly under duress as well, given that Luck has struggled. With this in mind, La Canfora mentions that a change of coordinators is also being considered.
If the Colts were to part ways with Hamilton, La Canfora believes assistant head coach Rob Chudzinski and QBs coach Clyde Christensen likely being replacement options.
There has been talk that the Colts are likely to make changes during their Week 10 bye, considering that this would give them enough time to move in a new direction.
We’ll have more regarding the Colts and potential changes as the news is available.
