Tom Ciskowski stays in Dallas

It was reported this morning the Indianapolis Colts hired Ryan Grigson as the general manager.

Tom Ciskowski, the Cowboys assistant director of player personnel, interviewed for the Colts vacant GM job last weekend. The indications are the interview went well for Ciskowski but it's evident the Colts wanted somebody else.

Grigson spent the last nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, the last two as the director of player personnel. Grigson was also the college scouting director.

Ciskowski gets to stay with the Cowboys, at least for now, and prepare this organization for the NFL Draft. As always, Ciskowski will get the draft board set up and speak with Jerry and Stephen Jones about which direction the organization should take regarding the roster.

Ciskowski is a valued member of the front office regarding grading college prospects and evaluating the current roster. It's a difficult job, but one Ciskowski appears to be good at.

If Ciskowski had left, the Cowboys most likely would have hired from within to replace him. Judd Garrett, the younger brother of coach Jason Garrett and the Cowboys' director of pro scouting, was a possible candidate.
