INDIANAPOLIS -- Chuck Pagano will not be with the Colts after this season, according to ESPN.

ESPN cites the Colts problems this season and his 'toxic' relationship with General Manager, Ryan Grigson.

At his press conference Friday, Pagano said he "hasn't had time to think about any of that stuff other than this ball game."

Pagano also turned down a contract extension prior to the start of this season.

Colts Owner Jim Irsay responded to the ESPN report on Twitter:

As of Wednesday, Pagano remained optimistic about the Colts' season.

The Colts were expected by many to compete for the AFC title, but all the injuries have added up to a 7-8 record.

Barring a long list of results this Sunday, the Colts will miss the playoffs entirely.

As for Grigson, ESPN is reporting that the GM will stay with the franchise through the coaching season but his future beyond that is still up in the air.
