The Patriots were expecting to lose college scouting director Monti Ossenfort when his contract expires, and the Titans are expected to hire him.

Ossenfort is slated to become the director of player personnel in Tennessee, according to Albert Breer of SI.com.

In New England Ossenfort has developed a strong reputation for his front office work, and he interviewed this year to be the Browns’ G.M. He also tried to interview to work for the Texans, although the Patriots blocked that.

Ossenfort worked with Titans G.M. Jon Robinson for eight years in New England and was in New England when Titans head coach Mike Vrabel played for the Patriots, so he has close ties to the Titans organization.

    Yes, but it doesn’t mean he left BECAUSE the Patriots blocked him from moving. This may have been an altruistic situation where Belichick was looking out for Ossenfort by saying, in effect, “Son, you do NOT want to get involved in that car wreck of a franchise”.

    Sean Payton was actually offered the Raiders job around the time he took the Saints job, but his mentor (Bill Parcells) strongly discouraged him from accepting the Raiders job, the point being that by that time, Al Davis was in serious decline and the franchise was going downhill (whereas the Saints had hit bottom, had nowhere to go but up, and Mickey Loomis gave him a lot of latitude).
