INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts executive Bill Polian is continuing his transition - a slow transition - away from the No. 1 decision-making role in his organization. Polian has assumed a new title, going from president to vice chairman, the Indianapolis Star reported today. Polian has been grooming his son Chris to take over for him. Chris Polian became vice president and general manager of the Colts in December 2009. Bill Polian has a home in Charlotte, N.C., and will spend a bit more time there now that he has a new title. But Colts owner Jim Irsay told the Star that the new title won't be a significant change and that the elder Polian, 68, still will play a major role in the team's decision-making. Irsay said he envisions Bill Polian receding into a consultant's role in two to three years.
