It’s been more than one year since Bill Polian was dismissed as President of the Indianapolis Colts. But Thursday morning, Polian was back on the job at Lucas Oil Stadium, in his new role as an NFL analyst for ESPN covering the NFL Combine.
Polian appeared as a guest on The John Murphy Show podcast Thursday night from the combine. He was asked if he misses his role running a team one year after leaving the Colts.
“I don’t miss Sunday as much as I thought I would, not nearly as much as I thought I would,” Polian said. “Because of ESPN and Sirius NFL Radio, I have to watch about five games a week on television and then I watch games during the week. I’m getting in a lot of work, I’m doing football work to stay current. But as I say, I don’t miss Sunday as nearly as much as I thought I would.”
“I do miss the personnel work,” he told host John Murphy, “being on the inside of that, the competition committee, I do miss that. That was the fun part of the job. When I come back to things like this, I do get nostalgic. But not as much as I thought.”
What about the future? Would Polian rule out returning to a team again?
“I’ve always said, I could do it, my health is fine,” he said. “I could do the work. The question is, do you really want to and does it fit with where the family is right now. My wife has carried the load for 35-years so she gets a big vote on this. Thus far, she hasn’t said anything that leads me to believe she’s going to say yes, but you never know.”
