Colts | More On Mora Firing

The AP reports the main reason the Indianapolis Colts fired coach Jim Mora was he refused to fire defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who had worked for Mora in each of his head coaching stops since 1983. Mora said there were other reasons that he was not free to discuss. "I was convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt and still am that the best way for us to be a good team was to keep Vic as defensive coordinator. Obviously that opinion was not shared," Mora said during a news conference. Mora said Fangio already has a job offer to be a defensive coordinator, but he did not identify the team.
