With the Indianapolis Colts firing head coach Chuck Pagano, the 57-year-old may have a job soon. He is a leading candidate to replace Dan Pees.

Pees, the 68-year-old Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator, is retiring after this season. Prior to accepting the Colts head coaching job in 2012, Pagano was the Ravens defensive coordinator in 2011.

Pagano also was the Ravens secondary coach from 2008 through 2010.

Pagano helped guide the 2011 Ravens to a 12-4 season. His defense allowed the opponents to score in 16 of the 42 red zone attempts that season.

The most points his defense gave up this particular season was 34 points to the San Diego Chargers on December 18th, 2011. This was the only game during that season that they allowed 34 points.

They also had three games, where they allowed 10 or fewer points. They allowed a touchdown each to the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 11th, 2011 and to the St. Louis Rams on September 25th.

They allowed two field goals to the San Francisco 49ers on November 24th, 2011.

Pees, who has been the Ravens defensive coordinator since the 2012 season, will retire following Sunday’s game. Or if the Ravens are able to make a playoff run, his journey in the NFL will end when their season ends.

Pees during his coaching career were able to win two Super Bowls in Super Bowl XXXIX with the New England Patriots and Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens.
