BREAKING: Ryan Grigson fired from the Colts
After five seasons and a roster not suited to win games behind on of the most promising QB’s, Ryan Grigson is out as the General Manager of the Colts.
Indianapolis owner Jim Irsay fired Grigson today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Colts have announced that Irsay will speak to the media later this afternoon, but they have not confirmed that Grigson is out.
Reports came out earlier this week that Irsay wanted Peyton Manning to run the front office, but according to sources, Manning was not likely to accept– still wanted to remain “retired” a little longer. Although ultimately owning or running a franchise is a goal of Peyton’s.
With this move the question now turns to head coach Chuck Pagano. Is his job safe? Time will tell.
The Colts will now get a very late start on the offseason, as most teams have their front office personnel in place and are already making preparations for free agency and the draft. But Grigson had ample opportunity to build a team around Andrew Luck in Indianapolis, and he failed to do so. As a result, he’s out.
