Tom Telesco Promoted To VP Of Football Operations

One of the last men standing from the Bill Polian era will be sticking around a little longer. Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has made the decision to promote Tom Telesco to vice president of football operations.

"I’ve known Tom for a long time and we have a mutual respect for each other," Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said. "He has been a valuable member of the Colts organization over the last 14 years and this promotion is well deserved. He has a bright football mind, conveys his points well and is highly respected in and around league circles. I’m looking forward to working with him this season as we make strides towards our ultimate goal."

Telesco was a strong candidate for the then-vacant general manager position. His tenure with the Colts has spanned 14 years. Initially an area scout for the team, Telesco was then a pro scout, director of pro scouting, and eventually received a promotion to director of player personnel in 2005.

Telesco's career roots included a gig with the Buffalo as a summer intern from 1991-94. Telesco then took a job with Carolina as a scouting assistant in 1995. During the Polian fallout, Telesco was on his way to Arizona to scout Andrew Luck in the Fiesta Bowl.

Well-deserved promotion for a hard working guy.

Congratulations, Mr. Telesco.
