Colts promote Telesco to VP of football operations

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have promoted Tom Telesco to vice president of football operations.

Telesco has spent the past six seasons as Indy's director of player personnel.

He's one of the few holdovers Indianapolis is keeping around in a major housecleaning project that has already claimed the jobs of vice chairman Bill Polian, general manager Chris Polian, coach Jim Caldwell and most of Caldwell's staff.

Telesco joined the Colts in 1998 as a scout. He climbed the ranks and after the 2005 season was named director of player personnel.

Telesco, a John Carroll University alumni, began his career as a scouting assistant with Carolina in 1995 and was a summer intern in Buffalo from 1991-94.
