It was reported that the Colts had requested permission to interview Kansas City Chiefs director of football operations Chris Ballard. That interview will indeed happen. According to NFL Network, it will go down on Wednesday.
#Chiefs director of football operations Chris Ballard is interviewing for the vacant #Colts GM job today, source said.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 25, 2017
The Colts fired their GM last week and now have a number of GM candidates. Ballard is highly regarded around the league landing at or near the top of most of the lists for GM candidates. Having Andrew Luck there would be a big bonus for any GM. The hardest part of the job is already done.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, have John Dorsey’s future to consider. He was linked to the Green Bay job next year. Who knows the validity of that but with the smoke there the Chiefs should have a plan if he does move on. I thought Ballard was that plan but maybe not.
