“Wow. It has been a whirlwind. Words can't describe the emotions that I'm going through right now and the feelings. Coming off probably the most devastating loss that I've ever been a part of in the AFC championship game and to go in that locker room and see those faces and we all know how hard it is to get to that stage and to see the tears. It's an all-time low, and the last thing I ever expected came across my table and now I sit here at an all-time high. " Those were Chuck Pagano's first words after he was introduced as the next coach of the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, four days after the Ravens' season ended with a crushing loss to the New England Patriots.

His contract was not renewed at the end of the 2013 season, and Hill-Eley was replaced by Lee Hull, the former wide receivers coach at Maryland. Hill-Eley did not have to wait long for employment as Spartans head coach Pete Adrian hired Hill-Eley in March as the team's offensive coordinator.
