You can read the full post in the new TechCrunch Insider app, but here are some of our favorite bits from Pagano’s first press conference in months.
If you missed Pagano last week, here are his first tweets on the team: “Today’s first day was definitely a learning experience for me, as we have a lot of new faces and we’ve been working hard on the offensive line and getting them into better rhythm.”
“We are excited to get back to our routine and get ready for training camp, and I want to thank everyone for their patience and support.
We are excited for the offseason ahead, and looking forward to what the new season brings.”
Pagano also spoke about how he has a new relationship with Grigssons assistant, Mike Tomlin.
Pagano, who played his college football at Virginia Tech, worked under Tomlin as an offensive coordinator in Philadelphia and then coached Tomlin and the Eagles for the past four years.
“I’m thrilled to have Mike Tomlinson as an assistant coach and a guy I’ve worked with for the last four years,” Pagano said.
“He’s an unbelievable coach, and he’s a tremendous football coach.
We’re excited to work together, and we will.”
He added that he thinks Pagano is “ready to go.”
“We had a great camp, I think we had some of my best practices of my career,” Pagan said.
The Colts have added five players to the 53-man roster, including defensive lineman David Parry, linebacker Deyshawn Bond and running back Isaiah Crowell.
Pagan also said he has confidence in running back Dwayne Allen, who has played in nine games this season.
