Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano has decided to retire.
Pagano is best known for his stint as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts went 11-5 in his first season there, though Pagano missed 12 games due to cancer treatments, inspiring the #CHUCKSTRONG cancer awareness movement. They matched that 11-5 recrod in 2013 and 2014, but then went 8-8 in back-to-back years before a 4-12 campaign in 2017 cost him his job.
He had been with the Bears for two seasons. Under his watch, Chicago finished 10th and eighth in defensive DVOA.
