INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano still has his job - for now.

After Pagano and team owner Jim Irsay met most of Monday afternoon, team spokesman Avis Roper said no announcement was expected to come before Tuesday.

The 55-year-old is not expected to return to Indy next season with his contract set to expire. Pagano turned down a one-year extension last offseason.

Meanwhile, as Colts players cleaned out their lockers Monday afternoon, they were still lobbying to keep their coach.

Linebacker D'Qwell Jackson said no announcement means there is still hope Pagano will be back.

In four seasons with Indy, Pagano is 41-23 with three playoff appearances, three playoff wins, two division titles and last year's appearance in the AFC championship game.

But the Colts (8-8), a trendy preseason Super Bowl pick, missed the playoffs this season.
