Jaguars could hire Chris Polian as pro personnel director

Polian served as general manager of the Indianapolis Colts for three seasons.

New Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell could hire Chris Polian as his pro personnel director, according to a report from Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Polian was previously the vice president and general manager of the Indianapolis Colts from 2009-2011 while his father, Bill Polian, was the team's president. Chris was originally hired as the team's pro personnel director after Bill became the general manager of the Colts in 1998. Both were fired following a 2-14 season in 2011.

Chris spent the 2012 season with the Atlanta Falcons as a regional scout, where he presumably built a relationship with Caldwell. With Chris as an executive beneath him, Bill built a Colts team that finished with double-digit win totals in 11 of 12 seasons before a 2-14 season forced the pair out.

However, in the latter years of the Polian-era, the team struggled to draft well, selecting low impact players with early picks like Anthony Gonzalez, Tony Ugoh, Mike Pollak and Donald Brown.

Louis Clark previously served as the team's pro personnel director under Gene Smith.
