Career highlights and awards

William Patrick "Bill" Polian, Jr. (born December 8, 1942) is an NFL analyst for ESPN and former American football executive. He was the Vice Chairman of the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League from 1998 to 2011. He rose to league prominence as the General Manager of the Buffalo Bills, building a team that participated in four straight Super Bowls—the most consecutive appearances by any team—but lost each time. Following his stint in Buffalo, Polian went on to become the General Manager of the expansion Carolina Panthers.

Early years[edit]

Polian grew up in the Fordham section of the Bronx in New York City and graduated from Mount Saint Michael Academy in 1960. He attended the United States Merchant Marine Academy and graduated from New York University in 1964 with a history degree.[1] At NYU, Polian played at safety for the NYU Violets football club team.[2] He lived in Cornwall, New York from 1977 to 1983.

Professional career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Polian began his career in professional football with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Blitz of the United States Football League, before moving to the Canadian Football League, where he assembled Grey Cup winning teams with the Montreal Alouettes and Winnipeg Blue Bombers.[3] Early on in his career, he was a coach for the now defunct football teams at Manhattan College and the Trinity School, both in New York City.

Buffalo Bills[edit]

Polian was General Manager for the Buffalo Bills from 1986 to 1992.[3] When Polian was promoted to general manager of the Bills on December 30, 1985, the Bills were suffering from back to back 2–14 seasons and fan interest was at an all-time low. Polian was originally hired as director of pro personnel for the Bills on August 2, 1984. Polian was instrumental in the signing of Bruce Smith to his first NFL contract, after which he was promoted to GM in 1985.[4] Polian won the NFL Executive of the Year Award twice in 1988 and in 1991.[5] After the 1992 season, on February 4, 1993, after the Bills had appeared in, and lost, their 3rd straight Super Bowl, Polian was fired as general manager.[6][7]

In 2012, Polian became the 28th inductee into the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame.

Carolina Panthers[edit]

Polian was General Manager of the Carolina Panthers from 1995 to 1997.[8] He tried to create the quickest Super Bowl winner in history, and nearly did so, building a team that went to the NFC Championship Game in only its second year of existence. This feat led him to a promotion, becoming not just the GM, but the President of the Indianapolis Colts.

Indianapolis Colts[edit]

In 1998, Polian was hired as President and decided to build through the draft as the Indianapolis Colts would have the number 1 overall pick for 1998; the Colts picked Peyton Manning. In 2002, he hired head coach Tony Dungy.

During his tenure, the Colts led the NFL with eight consecutive playoff appearances and seven consecutive seasons of 12 victories. They won seven division titles (1999, 2003-07, 09), won the 2006 Super Bowl against the Chicago Bears, and made a second Super Bowl appearance in 2010 but would lose to the New Orleans Saints under coach Jim Caldwell. From 2000-09, the Colts (115-45) set the NFL mark for most wins in a decade and nine playoff berths tied the NFL record of Dallas in the 1970s.

In 2006, According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Polian reportedly shoved a New York Jets employee by pinning him against a wall, for placing speakers too close to the field during warmups.[9] The league required Polian to issue a written apology to the Jets employee.[10]

Polian was fired by owner Jim Irsay after the Colts finished with a 2–14 record in the 2011 season.[11]

On January 31, 2015, it was announced that Polian had been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On January 1, 2017, Polian became the 13th inductee into the Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor. [12]

Personal life[edit]

In 2012, Polian was hired by ESPN to be commentator and an NFL analyst.[13]
