Chuck Pagano made a name for himself as a defensive coordinator and secondary coach in Baltimore. It helped vault him to the position of head coach in Indianapolis, where he hopes to replicate the same success.
It seems one of his former players in Baltimore is interested in helping him do that in Indianapolis.
The move makes sense if Pagano truly intends to shift the Colts defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4 base look. Redding (6'4, 298 pounds) is best suited to play 3-4 defensive end. 2011 was one of his best seasons, with 4.5 sacks and 43 combined tackles.
