Former Cowboy Pagano Diagnosed with Leukemia
Former University of Wyoming safety and current Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano has been diagnosed with leukemia. The NFL team announced Monday that Pagano, who is 52, has been hospitalized for cancer treatment and probably will not return to his coaching duties this season. Pagano was a two-year starter for the cowboys at strong safety in the early 1980’s and graduated from U.W. in 1984. He had been the Baltimore Ravens’ Defensive Coordinator from 2008 until January of this year when he was named as the Colts’ new Head Coach.
