Pagano plans to coach Colts for ‘years to come’

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano released a statement to downplay his job security with the team.

Pagano is entering the final season of his original four-year deal and reportedly the Colts won’t offer him a contract extension before the 2015 season begins.

Pagano released a statement Friday night suggesting he plans to be with the Colts for a long time.

“Be where your feet are,” Pagano wrote. “What do I mean? Cancer taught me to be thankful for today. All I’m concentrating on is today. Then tomorrow. My focus right now is on the draft, bringing in players that can help us continue to grow, get better, and continue to ‘Build the Monster.’ I look forward to coaching the Colts this season and for many years to come.”

Since taking over the Colts, Pagano has helped lead the franchise to three consecutive 11-5 seasons that included trips to the playoffs. This past season, the Colts reached the AFC Championship and lost to the New England Patriots 45-7.

According to an NFL.com report on Thursday, the Colts have no plans to extend Pagano before next season. Another report said the Colts offered Pagano a one-year extension with a small salary increase, which he declined.

Pagano signed a four-year contract in 2012. He missed most of his first season while battling leukemia. Bruce Arians took over, earned Coach of the Year honors and was hired by the Arizona Cardinals.

General manager Ryan Grigson, who hired Pagano, also is entering the final year of his contract, although the team has an option for 2016.
