After years of hedging and wavering between making coaching or front office changes, the Colts are preparing to conduct a coaching search this week, with sources close to Chuck Pagano saying the head coach expects to be relieved of his duties after the season. Owner Jim Irsay nearly made this move twice in recent years, and with the franchise struggling and the future of Andrew Luck in doubt and with rookie general manager Chris Ballard embarked on a long-term reshaping of the organization, more changes are coming in 2018, league sources indicated. Ballard has strong ties to two members of the Chiefs coaching staff, who he worked with prior to getting the job in Indianapolis last season, both of whom are expected to merit consideration for the coaching job. Special teams coach Dave Toub has interviewed for several openings in recent years, has a strong endorsement from Chiefs well-respected coach Andy Reid and is a lead Ballard thinks highly of.
