Did Chuck Pagano turn down an offer from the Colts?

There have been rumors that Chuck Pagano turned down a contract extension with the Colts.  Jim Irsay talked about the contract extension this week with 

“There were some efforts to talk about it and we just didn’t get there,” Irsay said via “Sometimes that happens and people have different opinions these days. If you go back to the old days, there were no agents involved. … Again, we’re real positive about Chuck Pagano and the things he’s done and it’s not a sign of anything extremely negative. We just haven’t gotten anything done in terms of a long-term contract.

Irsay did in fact state that the Colts and Pagano are trying to work on getting something done. 

“I really feel positive about Chuck and what he’s done for us. There’s no question that he’s accomplished a lot since he’s been here,” Irsay said. “And, obviously, we’re here for this gala because he had that illness in 2012. Really, it’s only been kind of two years almost that he’s been coaching. He’s done a very good job. Nothing rules out that we couldn’t have an extension done before the season. If not, we can still, I’m sure, probably work things out.
