Bill Polian reportedly not connected to Chiefs

Jed Jacobsohn

Polian has previously been an executive with the Bills, Panthers and Colts before joining ESPN as an analyst.

Former Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian will not be the next general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a report from Mike Florio of NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk.

Polian, 70, originally served as the GM for the Buffalo Bills, building a team that went to four consecutive Super Bowls, but did not win. He then accepted the same position for the expansion Carolina Panthers before he was named the president of the Colts in 1997.

He was fired following the 2011 NFL season in which the Colts finished 1-15 and spent the 2012 season away from football, instead serving as an NFL analyst for ESPN.

The Chiefs have not yet decided to move on from GM Scott Pioli, but owner Clark Hunt did relieve head coach Romeo Crennel from his position with the team. Hunt is currently searching for a new coach that may have the say on Pioli's future with the team.
