Would the Colts really keep Jim Caldwell despite starting 0-13?
According to Peter King, the answer is yes.
Last night Peter King and Mike Florio did an online segment on possible head coach vacancies. What King said about Jim Caldwell was interesting (thanks to Stampede Blue for the video).
King: See, I think, Mike, that the Colts [coaching job] would have been open had Jim Caldwell gone 0-16. But, I’ll tell you this, and I know this for a fact, Bill Polian, Chris Polian, Jim Irsay want to keep Jim Caldwell. I think winning one game, I think winning two solidifies it. I thinking winning one really helps his cause.
Florio: And i think, most importantly, Peyton Manning wants to keep Jim Caldwell-
Florio: -which makes it more likely to be a yes.
