Watch: Mathis gives Chuck Pagano game ball after possible last game

Sunday January 3rd, 2016

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano received the game ball after a Week 17 win Sunday. 

Pagano was given the ball by longtime Colt Robert Mathis in the locker room after the game. Pagano likely coached his last game with the Colts on Sunday, according to multiple reports. If so, Pagano went out on top, defeating the Titans 30–24.

The Colts also posted video of Pagano’s postgame speech.

Pagano joined Indianapolis in 2012, going 11–5 and making the playoffs in each of his first three seasons. The Colts regressed to 8–8 this year, battling injuries to the quarterback position for much of the season.
