INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – For many Indianapolis Colts fans, the silence has been deafening.

Is head coach Chuck Pagano coming back? What about GM Ryan Grigson?

According to Alex Marvez of, Pagano has “received assurance” from owner Jim Irsay that he will return for the 2017 season.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter also said the Colts planned to bring Pagano back.

Pagano’s fate has been in limbo since the Colts finished a disappointing 8-8 and missed the playoffs for the second year in a row. He spoke Monday during the team’s year-end news conference and said he expected to return.

At that point, he said he hadn’t met with Irsay. The Colts owner hasn’t spoken publicly about the status of Pagano or Grigson.’s Ian Rapoport said fans should also expect Grigson to return.

Pagano and Grigson are tied at the hip after receiving contract extensions last year, when similar questions about their status with the team were raised.

The Colts said Pagano is under contract and there’s no reason to put out a statement.
