Colts Coaching Rumors Roundup: Interviews With Josh McDaniels, Dave Toub, And More

After the Indianapolis Colts Week 17 win, the team decided to fire head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano posted a 53-43 record with the Colts, including three straight 11-5 years to start his tenure. But his last three years have not gone well, with two 8-8 campaigns and now a 4-12 mark without star QB Andrew Luck. The Colts coaching rumors in regards to Pagano are over, but now there will be a whole new bunch of Colts coaching news and rumors to know.

Ian Rapoport reports that the Colts are expected to interview New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Kansas City Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub, and Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy.

Josh McDaniels 
McDaniels has rebuilt his reputation while leading the Patriots’ offense for the past five seasons after a less-than-successful head coaching debut in Denver. Its been rumored for several years that McDaniels has a strong desire to be an NFL head coach again should the right role open up. With Andrew Luck (hopefully healthy) in Indy, this might be the best role for McDaniels. While he's rumored to want to pair up with a GM he's familiar with (Louis Riddick or Nick Caserio), the presence of Chris Ballard would prevent that from happening. But, a McDaniels and Ballard tandem would be a dynamic one. 

Dave Toub
Toub is one of the greatest special teams coaches in the history of the NFL. He has turned the Chiefs special teams into one of the most feared units, as he has at all of his previous stops. He is respected throughout the NFL and has a great relationship with the players and front office. At 55 years old, Toub is older than many first-time head coaches but will draw interest after having interviews last season. Chris Ballard came over from the Chiefs and worked with Toub for over a decade in Chicago and Kansas City. That pairing makes Toub a top candidate for the Colts job.

Matt Nagy
The Chiefs' offense is back on track and there's one notable change the team has made: giving Nagy play-calling duties. The offense is clicking again and that will help Nagy's job chances. Just like Doug Pederson before him, Andy Reid's OC will draw head coaching interest. He has ties to Ballard, having worked with him in Kansas City. He could be perfect for Luck.
