Could The 49ers' Greg Roman Be A Candidate For The Next Head Coach Of The Indianapolis Colts?

The Indianapolis Colts have undergone a pretty big shift just a couple weeks into their offseason. They removed one of the consensus-best executives in the NFL, firing Bill Polian, and on Tuesday, announced that Jim Caldwell was relieved of his duties as head coach on top of that. Many are wondering if these changes will ultimately lead to another big change: the release of quarterback Peyton Manning and the drafting of a new quarterback in Andrew Luck. It's certainly a possibility.

Why is this worth discussing here? Because the San Francisco 49ers have a certain offensive coordinator who may be a candidate for a certain head coaching gig. Roman has been considered a guy who would be getting looks at some point anyway, although there hasn't been any solid news outside of the Penn State job that he didn't get. One has to wonder, though, if the Colts could be looking at Roman, who coached Luck at Stanford. It's definitely a hire that would make sense, though it's worth noting that there's nothing really solid that suggests the Colts are interested just yet.
