The biggest reason why keeping Greg Manusky makes sense is because it really is Chuck Pagano’s defense. Greg Manusky is the defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts has been in every aspect of the game. He played in high school, college and the NFL. He has also coached for the Washington Redskins, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and currently in Indy.
Manusky is entering in his third season with the Colts and helped transition the team from the traditional 4-3 defense to the 3-4 defense.
Manusky was born in Dallas, Pennsylvania, went to Colgate college, was undrafted in 1988 and debuted in 1988 for the Washington Redskins. The last team he played for was the Kansas City Chiefs.
Mausky is renowned for coaching linebackers, he guided Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney as they made the conversion from defensive end to the linebacker position. Mathis led the team with 8.0 sacks while Freeney totaled 5.0 improving his career mark to 107.5. Safety Antoine Bethea topped the 100 tackle plateau for the fifth consecutive year.
Since his arrival in 2012, the defense has slowly made the transition, and no one better than Mathis. Last year Mathis lead the NFL in sacks, and proved that he made the transition from a down lineman to linebacker in Manusky’s scheme perfectly.
Chuck Pagano and Manusky are a dynamic duo for the Indianapolis Colts and Colts Nation. Time and time again the Indianapolis coaching staff compliments each other with their individual and group talents. The fall of 2014 is looking really good for the Colts and as much as excitement that surrounds the players behind them and supporting them is the coaching staff to get it done in Indy
