Jets start making changes to front office

AP

When a new General Manager is hired in January, he inherits the front office and typically refrains from making changes until the draft in April.

The draft has come and gone, and now Jets G.M. John Idzik has started the process of putting his own people in place.

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets will not renew the contracts of assistant director of scouting Michael Davis and area scout Joe Bommarito.

“Not renewing the contract” is a potato-pohtato way of firing someone.  The only difference is that there will be no buyout because there’s no time left on the deal to buy out.

Davis had spent 16 years with the Jets.  Bommarito worked for the team for a dozen years.

  1. Not a big deal, its not like over these 16 years they were drafting HOF players year in year out… Time for new front office blood from top to bottom

  2. Given the Jets’ performance the last two years, he should have started cleaning house roughly ten minutes after he signed his contract.

    Then again, it’s the Jets. Forty-four years and counting.

  3. Wow. Two dudes that no ones ever heard of are out of work…like so many other people in this economy.

    Fascinating stuff! Stay on top of this, please!

  4. “So you guys are the reason we have Mark Samchez in the first place, huh?”… POOF…. Be gone!!!!

  5. Will somebody explain to me why scouting executives are dismissed after the draft? Are these not the individuals that made the pitch to draft our current crop of draftees? If there was any question regarding their proficiency, why not fire them prior to the draft and replace them with people selected by the GM prior to draft day?

  6. After too many failure years for the Jets, everyone in the Jet’s front office should be worried as heck about losing their jobs.

  7. as much as I love the circus, Idzik WILL fix that team if Woody stays out of his way and lets him do his thing. he was a GREAT part of what was built in Seattle. Enjoy your next 7 months of employment Rex, the end is coming. Maybe you can reunite with Tebow in the CFL.

  8. Good job Idzik! Keep these guys around long enough to help you draft Geno. Brilliant!

  9. Question of the day…

    If the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets switched places with each other would anyone notice?

    Probably not. The Factory of Sadness would still march on… and on…and on…and on…
