HEAD COACH COMPARISON

HEAD COACH COMPARISON COLTS HEAD COACH CHUCK PAGANO Coaching Years in NFL: 12th Year Colts Head Coach: 2nd Year Overall Regular Season: 15-6 (.714) Overall Postseason: 0-1 (.000) CHARGERS HEAD COACH MIKE McCOY Coaching Years in NFL: 14th Year Chargers Head Coach: 1st Year Overall Regular Season: 2-3 (.400) Overall Postseason: 0-0 (.000) Chuck Pagano's 2012 season proved to be one of the most inspirational stories in NFL history. Named head coach of the Indianapolis Colts on January 25, 2012, Pagano was forced to take a leave of absence just three games into the season after being diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia, a curable form of the disease, which is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow cells. Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians assumed interim head coaching duties and he and the Colts defied the odds and rallied to a 9-3 record. During that time frame, Indianapolis secured a playoff berth and accomplished one of their primary goals – extending the season for Pagano. Some of the victories during Arians' term included a comeback win against Green Bay (Week 5) after trailing by 18 points, an overtime victory on the road at Tennessee (Week 8) and a last second victory in Detroit (Week 13). In all, the Colts posted a 9-1 record in one-possession games in 2012, including winning their last eight. As much as Chuck Pagano inspired the 2012 Colts, the team did just the same for their ailing head coach. From his hospital bed, Pagano was in constant communication with the coaching staff and players. He analyzed practices while continuing to game-plan schemes. Along the way, Pagano continued to make his presence felt. After the team's Week 9 victory against Miami, the head coach gave a moving postgame speech to the contingent in the locker room. "I've got circumstances," Pagano told the locker room. "You guys understand it, I understand it. It's already beat (referring to the leukemia). It's already beat. My vision that I'm living is to see two more daughters get married, dance at their weddings and then hoist that Lombardi Trophy several times." Pagano made another return three weeks later during the team's win against Buffalo where he appeared in Owner & CEO Jim Irsay's suite while saluting the crowd on hand. Pagano received a rousing ovation from Colts fans in attendance. As the regular season came to an end, the culmination of Arians' stretch as interim head coach concluded with the team's playoffclinching victory at Kansas City (Week 16). The stage was set for Pagano to return after missing 12 weeks of action. Division rival Houston visited Lucas Oil Stadium in the regular season finale in hopes of clinching the AFC's No. 1 seed in the playoffs. The Colts were not deterred, however, as the team corralled the emotion in Pagano's return and compiled a 28-16 win to finish the regular season with an 11-5 record. The real victory, however, was the return of a healthy Chuck Pagano. It was a day the Colts organization and fans will remember for generations. Indianapolis' playoff run ended earlier than the team had wished after falling to the eventual Super Bowl XLVII champion Baltimore Ravens in an AFC Wild Card playoff contest. What was not lost were the numerous team and individual milestones that the Colts established in a season facing low expectations. Most notably, the 11-5 record was a nine-win improvement from the 2011 campaign, which tied for the third-largest one-year turnaround in NFL history. The Colts also registered their 12th 10-plus win season in the past 14 years, which is the most of any NFL team since 1999. Pagano and Arians were honored together by the Maxwell Football Club as the recipients of the 24th Annual Earle "Greasy" Neale Award for Professional Coach of the Year. The two also garnered AFC Coach of the Year honors as winners of the annual NFL 101 Awards. Pagano was selected by the PFWA as the winner of the 2013 George Halas Award, given to an NFL player, coach or staff member who overcame the most adversity to succeed. Each year, the Fritz Pollard Alliance Foundation recognizes individuals who make a difference in diversity and inclusion at an annual awards banquet. In February of 2013, Pagano received the foundation's Game Ball Award for the differences he has made to level the playing field in the NFL for minorities. 8 Pro Career: On January 15, 2013, Mike McCoy was named the 15th head coach in team history. He came from Denver, where he spent the 2009- 2012 seasons. Last season, McCoy was part of a staff that saw the Broncos win the second-most games in franchise history (13). Denver won 11 straight games to end the regular season and entered the playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the AFC. McCoy began his coaching career with Carolina in 2000, joining the Panthers as an offensive assistant before being elevated to quarterbacks coach. He spent a total of nine seasons with the Panthers, serving additionally as wide receivers coach (2001), quarterbacks coach (2002-08) and passing game coordinator (2007-08). The Panthers totaled three playoff appearances, two division titles, two NFC Championship Game appearances and a berth in Super Bowl XXXVIII (2003) during McCoy’s tenure on the staff. Career record (Regular Season and Postseason): 2-3. Background: McCoy played quarterback at Long Beach State and Utah before signing with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 1995. He spent his rookie season on the practice squad in Green Bay and then had stops with NFL Europe’s Amsterdam Admirals, his hometown San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles before concluding his playing career with the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders in 1999. Personal: Born in San Francisco, Calif. on April 1, 1972. McCoy and his wife, Kellie, have a daughter, Liv, and a son, Luke.
