In roughly four months, Jets assistant G.M. Scott Cohen has gone from being a candidate to run the football operation to being unfit to continue working for it.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Cohen is the next man to go in the post-draft shakeup under G.M. John Idzik.
It’s not a surprise, given that new General Managers want their own people in place.
Cohen arrived in 2008 as assistant G.M. after serving as director of pro personnel with the Eagles, working closely with former Eagles G.M. Tom Heckert.
The changes in the team’s front office serve only to fuel speculation that, just as Idzik wants his own people implementing his vision of the front office, he’ll eventually want his own coach to effect Idzik’s vision of the team.
