Report: Bill and Chris Polian Are Out In Indianapolis

Tuesday January 3rd, 2012

Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Polian and vice chairman Bill Polian have been let go, according to ESPN.

The Colts finished the season tied with the St. Louis Rams with an NFL worst 2-14 record. According to ESPN, pressure has risen in Indianapolis over the course of the year for the removal of the Polians.

Much of the Colts’ losing ways can be attributed for a neck injury that kept franchise quarterback Peyton Manning out of the lineup for the entire season. Last year, with a healthy Manning, the Colts finished 10-6.

Bill and Chris have run the Indianapolis franchise together since 1998, and famously drafted Peyton Manning first overall over eventual bust Ryan Leaf.
