Pappas leaves Justin Wilson after two seasons at Dale Coyne Racing. Wilson was on pace to finish an IndyCar-best fourth in the standings, but was injured in the finale at Fontana. Wilson finished sixth - his best result in IndyCar and Coyne's best finish as an owner.
Pappas moves to Rahal, who finished a disappointing 18th in his first season driving for his father.
Pappas started with Roush Racing before Roush started in NASCAR. He then focused on open-wheel racing and worked for Chip Ganassi Racing, Walker Racing, Panther Racing, KV Racing and Coyne in a career that spans 25 years.
Pappas also did one season in NASCAR with Michael Waltrip Racing.
