The Indianapolis Colts will reportedly fire head coach Chuck Pagano, according to ESPN's Mike Wells.

According to Wells, the Colts will retain general manager Ryan Grigson to help in the coaching search, but may not keep him on for the 2016 regular season. Owner Jim Irsay will also be involved in the coaching search.

Pagano was named the Colts head coach in 2012 and went on to three consecutive 11-5 seasons and lost to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game just last year. This year, after a slew of quarterback injuries, he's managed just a 7-8 record headed into the season finale.

Pagano is a career 40-23 in the regular season and 3-3 in the playoffs.

I'd like to think the 51-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars had something to do with this.
