Does the radiator have to be removed to replace the water pump on 97 grand Cherokee limited v8?

On every radiator hose there are generally two ends. Both ends have a clamp or clamps holding them tight. Remove these clamps and you can remove the hose.

First I removed the oil filter and drained the radiator fluid. Unplugged the oil sending unit.
