    The Indianapolis Colts have hired a new general manager.

    Colts owner Jim Irsay confirmed Wednesday morning that the Colts have hired Ryan Grigson, who had been director of player personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Grigson has been in Philly for the last nine years in various positions. He’s from Highland, Ind., and was an offensive lineman at Purdue University in the early 1990s.

    Irsay said he had interviewed seven candidates for the post by Monday night. Grigson was one of those said to be in the running for the job.

    Grigson had a 12-year career in the NFL and played in the Super Bowl three times.

    He had been the Eagles’ director of player personnel since 2010.

    The Colts plan a news conference at 4 p.m. to discuss the hire.
