NFL Coach Shares Inspirational Story In New Book
You may know Chuck Pagano because of his coaching accolades with the Indianapolis Colts. On June 24, 2014, however, he added another title to his resume – an author. And boy does he have a story to tell.
In October 2012, Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia. In his debut as Head Coach for the Colts, he was forced to sit out Weeks 5-16 to undergo treatment. After a trying time of physical illness and emotional stress, he came returned to his team and helped the Colts to the playoffs.
In his book Sidelined: Overcoming Odds Through Unity, Passion and Perseverance, Pagano chronicles his journey through treatment and the support he received from his team, his family, and the NFL community. All proceeds of this book will go towards cancer research.
