If Chuck Pagano is fired in Indy, here are the two big names the Colts are reportedly chasing

Chuck Pagano is likely out, and here are two huge names that could replace him.

Barring a miracle, the Indianapolis Colts will miss the playoffs and fired head coach Chuck Pagano.

If that happens, the Colts are expected to chase big-name coaches Nick Saban and Sean Payton, according to's Ian Rapoport.

With the New Orleans Saints headed toward a rebuild, the team could be inclined to allow Payton to explore other opportunities, and it certainly helps that the Colts are in the opposing conference.

On the other hand, if Saban wins another national championship, there won't be much he hasn't done in college football and he could eye a return to the NFL for a more successful second stint.
