“Clyde’s [Powers, director of pro personell for the last 31 years] probably going to retire; we’ll see,” Colts owner Jim Irsay told the Indianapolis Star on Wednesday. “He might want to do some work for the league office. He’s got a place out in South Carolina. He and I talked, and Chris Polian talked with him. . . . He’s a close friend of mine and we’ve been together a long time.”
One day later, Powers wanted to clarify how things went down.
“I’m not retiring. I was fired,” Powers told the same paper. “Chris Polian is the new vice president and general manager, and he should be entitled to have the people around him he feels comfortable with.”
Powers also said that J.W. Jordan, who worked as a a salary cap/personnel analyst for the last nine years, is also now looking for work.”
Looks like the Colts front office has created a mess in the media once again. I thought this might have been the case when I first heard it. This is thanks to Pro Football Talk’s article.
