Indy Hires GM, Passing On Cowboys' Ciskowski

The Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday announced they have hired Eagles director of player personnel Ryan Grigson as their new general manager, ending a search that included the Cowboys' top scout, Tom Ciskowski.

A member of the Cowboys organization since 1992, Ciskowski interviewed with Indianapolis over the weekend.

The Colts reportedly checked out several candidates, including Atlanta college scouting director David Caldwell, Saints college scouting director Rick Reiprish and Jim Popp, the GM of the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes.

The Colts fired Bill Polian last week after 13 years as team's general manager, and conducted interviews with seven candidates by the end of Monday, according to a tweet by owner Robert Irsay.

Ciskowski was also believed to have attracted interest for the St. Louis general manager search, but was not one of the three candidates the team confirmed it had interviewed as of Tuesday - Tennessee's Lake Dawson, Atlanta's Les Snead and Grigson.
