Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell will lose his job if the team finishes the season winless, NFL.com reported Wednesday, citing sources. The Colts, who have been without their four-time MVP quarterback Peyton Manning for the entire campaign, are 0-13 and close out the season with home games against Tennessee (7-6) and Houston (10-3), and a trip to Jacksonville (4-9). The source said losses in all three matches would certainly see the 56-year-old Caldwell fired after three seasons at the helm. In his first year in charge, the Colts topped the AFC South with a 14-2 record, and lost to the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV. The team's 14-0 start was an NFL record for a rookie head coach. Last year, Indianapolis topped the AFC South again, finishing the year 10-6, but lost to the New York Jets in the AFC Wild Card Game.
