Colts hire Jimmy Raye as VP of football operations


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts have hired Jimmy Raye as their new vice president of football operations. He replaces Tom Telesco, who was named San Diego's general manager late last week.

Raye spent the last five seasons as the Chargers' director of player personnel where he was in charge of the team's pro and college scouting departments and assisted with player personnel matters. Colts GM Ryan Grigson calls Raye a "top-notch" evaluator and says he's eager to work with Raye heading into the offseason.

Raye was a scout for the Chargers from 1996-99, then became the Chargers' director of college scouting until 2007 and was promoted again in 2008. He started his NFL career as Kansas City's quality control coach in 1995.

His father, Jimmy, is on Tampa Bay's coaching staff.
