Around the Pound (1/25): Ravens Losing Pagano to Colts

In today's edition of Around the AFC North, we ignore the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers to focus only on the Baltimore Ravens losing their defensive coordinator again.

Baltimore Ravens: Chuck Pagano to be the Colts' Head Coach

It figures that the Colts didn't need an offensive-minded head coach when you have Peyton Manning under center. Pro Football Talk reports that after interviewing a lot of candidates, Jim Irsay has settled on Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano as the team's new head coach.

That means that former Browns special teams coordinator Brad Seely did not get the position. However, you can still chalk this up as another former Browns assistant who has become a head coach. I wasn't aware of this, but Pagano was the Browns' secondary coach from 2001-2004, serving under Butch Davis' staff.

Pagano was the Ravens' secondary coach for two years before being named their defensive coordinator this past season. He had originally taken over for Greg Mattison as Baltimore's defensive coordinator. Baltimore's defense has thrived over the years despite numerous changes at the coordinator position, but you have to imagine that one of these years, the continuity is going to break.

Side note: is this another clue that Rob Ryan will never get a head coaching gig?
