Report: Jim Irsay Meeting With Polians And Jim Caldwell Tonight To Discuss Future Of Colts

New, comments

The last time the Colts started a season 0-10 was 1997. The Monday after that season ended, owner Jim Irsay fired his general manager Bill Tobin and his head coach, Lindy Infante. This season, the Colts started 0-13, and Phillip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star is reporting that Irsay is meeting tonight with team vice chairman Bill Polian, general manager Chris Polian, and head coach Jim Caldwell.

The meeting is to discuss 'the future' of the Indianapolis Colts.

Know one knows what will result from this meeting. It is worth noting that (to my knowledge) Bill Polian did not conduct his standard post-game interview with team broadcaster Bob Lamey following the Colts 19-16 loss to the Jaguars today. Presently, Jim Caldwell has his usual post-game press conference scheduled for tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. If that press conference is canceled, that will tell us something is up.

As Wilson correctly noted in his report, if changes are coming in Indianapolis, we should expect them Monday. This probably includes any replacements for Bill Polian, Chris Polian, or Jim Caldwell.

Stay tuned.

[UPDATE]: Irsay tweeted this immediately following the Colts loss [emphasis mine]:

The season has ended and the heavy lifting begins to restore The Horseshoe to Greatness...it takes what it takes....
