Report: Sayville’s Jack Coan cut by the Indianapolis Colts


Jack Coan is reportedly no longer a member of the Indianapolis Colts.

Though he is still listed on the roster on the Colts website, PFF Football News & Analysis reported that the Sayville legend and former Notre Dame quarterback was part of the team’s final roster cuts. The Colts need to trim to the NFL’s mandated 53-player roster by the league’s Aug. 30 deadline.

Coan can still sign with the Colts practice squad, or he can be scooped up by another team.

The undrafted free-agent had stiff competition to make Indianaplois’ roster, with a depth chart that included former MVP Matt Ryan, newly signed free agent and Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles and second-year incumbent Sam Ehlinger.

In limited time played this preseason, Coan completed 10 of 19 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown.

His best showing came against Detroit, where he tossed “the perfect pass” to fellow rookie Samson Nacua out of Brigham Young to bring the Colts within one point in the final minute of the game.

Here was the throw:

A tell-tale sign he wasn’t going to make the final roster cuts was his limited action in the team’s final preseason game against Tampa Bay.

In the game, Coan completed 2 of 3 passes for 8 yards. But he did get to share this memorable moment with arguably the best QB of all time, Tom Brady. See the tweet below from Coan’s uncle Dan.

In college, Coan spent four seasons, including one injured and out of the lineup, with Wisconsin before transferring to Notre Dame in 2021 as a graduate student.

At times showing off a flare for the dramatic in comeback victories for the Irish, he helped lead the team to an 11-2 record and an appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, where he tossed for a Fiesta Bowl-record of 509 yards.
