Polian signs extension
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have signed team president Bill Polian to a contract extension through 2011.
The Polian-led Colts have posted a 105-55 regular-season record over the past 10 seasons, reached the playoffs eight times and won the Super Bowl after the 2006 season.
Team owner Jim Irsay confirmed through a spokeswoman Wednesday that the extension has been finalized.
The 65-year-old Polian was hired in 1998 to oversee all on-field operations.
His draft choices have included franchise quarterback Peyton Manning, running backs Edgerrin James and Joseph Addai, receiver Reggie Wayne, and defensive stars Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders.
