    Colts' Tom Zupancic resigns unexpectedly


    Tom Zupancic resigned on Friday as the Indianapolis Colts' senior vice president of sales and marketing, ending 27 years with the NFL franchise.

    The reason behind the departure was not clear. In a written statement to Colts' business associates, Zupancic wrote, "It is with bittersweet feelings that I am announcing my retirement from the Indianapolis Colts organization ... I feel blessed to have worked for one of the premier organizations in the National Football League."

    Zupancic and Colts officials did not return calls seeking comment.

    In his statement, Zupancic wrote, "I leave you with the most passionate staff in the NFL. I am confident that you will continue to enjoy excellent service delivered with professionalism. It has been my honor to work with you, and I wish you continued success in your business and in our mutual pursuit of another World Championship."

    Zupancic had been with the Colts since they relocated from Baltimore to Indianapolis in 1984. He served as the team's strength and conditioning coach until 1999, when he became director of business development.

    This is sad.

    My Dad and I would always listen to Dog and Zup with the Pregame Scoop on the radio on the drive to Indy on gameday.

    It feels like everything is crumbling this year.

    For those interested, it was relayed to me by one of Tom's closest friends that his retirement is not health related in any way.

    I was not informed of the details of his leaving, but am aware that Tom has considered seeking out opportunities outside of football for some time.

    It is puzzling to me that Tom would resign in mid-season without having another position in hand, especially considering the high-dollar expenses of having children in college.

    It was probably the same reason Mora and Mudd left. They just didn't agree with the way stuff was being done. philosophy differences would be my guess but thats just a guess.

    Well that's nice to know it has nothing to do with his health but it also makes it even more likely that there are things horribly wrong at the Colts Complex beyond our 0-7 record.

    This is one of the biggest Colts homers there is and he resigns in the middle of the season something is seriously wrong he's been here longer than Manning has

    Just a possibility, mind you, but I think this thread could possibly be associated with this one:

    It has nothing to do with his health or Polian, for that matter.

    So why did he resign in the middle of the season?

    One week I see him on Colts UpClose talking about the Colts

    Next week? He just up and retires?!

    Something is amiss here.

    Would you like to place a sizable wager on that?
