Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is happy that Jim Irsay kept Chuck Pagano


Was keeping Chuck Pagano risky?

There were so many rumors as last season came to an end that Chuck Pagano and Ryan Grigson were both going to be canned after the season, but their owner decided to let them keep working together.  This move was a little gutsy but their star quarterback really likes the move, and even admitted it is gutsy.

“I think Mr. Irsay showed a lot of guts keeping coach Pagano and Ryan,” Luck recently told the Indianapolis Star’s Zak Keefer. “I think the easy thing is to start all over, I really do. I think that was an awesome, gutsy move. I think it surprised me, but then again, I think any decision would’ve surprised me.”

Luck is fired up to return and make a difference.  Jim Irsay talked to Keefer and said this:

“I’ve never seen him more motivated,” Irsay said, via Keefer. “That fire is in his eye in a special way.”
