Rob Ryan Shows Support for Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano On Clipboard
After the sudden news that Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with a treatable form of the leukemia, the world involving NFL football was shocked. As reports say, Pagano will likely miss the whole season coaching, with offensive coordinator Bruce Arians filling in as the offensive coordinator.
During the Monday night football showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears, there was some support for the rookie head coach. One person was Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who had a clipboard that supported Pagano as he undergoes the process of chemotherapy this next few weeks.
With breast cancer awareness month already in full swing, both teams had pink gear on. Ryan’s clipboard had a pink color to it and with the back of it reading, “Get well soon Pags!” Colts punter Pat McAfee spotted it out during the game that aired on ESPN, taking a screenshot of it and then posting on Twitter, looking for people who are being #ChuckStrong.
It’s a great thing to see from Ryan, showing support for a fellow defensive coordinator, as Pagano served as one for the past few years with the Baltimore Ravens. He has transformed the Colts into a completely new defense, and so far, they have been off to a pretty good start with it.
Losing Pagano for the season is a big loss for this new team, but support from other coaches around the league, such as what Ryan displayed on national television, can definitely help this squad moving forward this year.
