NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Jets have a new general manager.
Pretty soon they’ll have a new assistant GM, too.
Gang Green will part ways with assistant general manager Scott Cohen, opting not to renew his contract, according to multiple reports.
The Jets’ lead negotiator, director of football administration Ari Nissim, reportedly won’t have his deal renewed either.
New York brought in John Idzik to replace the fired Mike Tannenbaum as general manager in January. Cohen was in the mix for the position as the Jets’ in-house candidate.
“A majority of front office personnel” wanted Cohen to get the job “to avoid an impending house cleaning,” the Newark Star-Ledger reported. Several scouts have already moved on or been handed their walking papers.
Cohen was hired by the Jets in 2008.
The team is “expected to hire former Cardinals GM Rod Graves to join their front office staff,” Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported via Twitter on Wednesday.
