Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has been told by owner Jim Irsay that he will return next season, according to a report from the Sporting News' Alex Marvez.

Pagano just completed his fifth season in Indianapolis, and the team has gone 8–8 in each of the past two seasons.

There had been speculation about Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson's job security with the team since the season ended because the team has missed the playoffs for two consecutive years. Pagano agreed to a four-year contract extension at the end of last season.

Pagano, 56, has a 49–31 record with three playoff appearances during his time in Indianapolis.
