Colts | More On Mora Firing

Tue, 08 Jan 2002 20:51:21 -0800

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.

"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.

Sun, 06 Jan 2002 16:15:23 -0800

Michael Marot reports for the Associated Press an emotional Jim Mora said after Sunday's game he wants to remain coach of the Indianapolis Colts. "I will not quit. I will not quit," Mora said. "I want to coach here, I should be the coach here." Team president Bill Polian declined to answer questions about Mora's security following a 6-10 season. Mora has one more season remaining on his five-year contract. A large part of the Colts problem was a defense that ranked among the worst in the league against the run, against the pass and in scoring. Mora said he met with Polian regarding defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, but he would not dicuss any details. Mora defended Fangio as one of the best defensive minds in the game.
